Welcome to Music Mondays: brought to you by John Hughes and Simple Minds.

Every geek, nerd, punk, goth, and skater I know felt a tug of compassion for John Bender in John’s Hughes’s Breakfast Club.

The damaged troublemaker was not irredeemable in the last.

All their hearts thrilled when he got the girl at the end.

No matter how hard you are, this song will churn up memories of being found by someone special during those godawful, terrifying, gut wrenching years of high school.

Enjoy the next four minutes and change. Oh, and your welcome.
