Alive And Kicking

by

Simple Minds



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was Simple Minds' second worldwide hit, and it was even more successful in the US than in their native Great Britain, peaking here at #3 on the charts. The song is an affirming that the love between two people will stay alive and prosper, even in bad times. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
Robin Clark sang backing vocals on this. The American vocalist is the wife of one of David Bowie's favorite guitarists Carlos Alomar, and she has also worked with the Thin White Duke, including on his Young Americans album.

Wonderful song. I think it was written when Jim Kerr was still married to Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. Too bad it didn't last.

Is it goofy fun, or is there real meaning in these songs? And all about the Phineas and Ferb theme song.

Doubt led to drive for Francis, who still isn't sure why one of Status Quo's biggest hits is so beloved.
