"Sense Of Discovery" was written by Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr
and guitarist Charlie Burchill. However, the pair nearly fell out over a version of the track that Burchill did not like. Kerr recalled to The Sun
"Charlie is so polite and tries hard not to be negative. He really didn't want to disappoint me. But, piping up at the last minute it's then 'Whoahhhhhh' and it all kicked off. Afterwards, I went outside and a big Glaswegian guy said, 'I've not heard a fight like that in years.'"
Kerr and Burchill made up and the track closes the album. "That night I went home and felt embarrassed at some of the stuff I'd said," recalled the vocalist. "But then I started laughing, as it showed how passionate I was about that song - how passionate we both still are about Simple Minds."
