In my humble opinion, Simply Red are one of the best bands ever.

Formed in 1984 by Mick Hucknall, who has a distinct voice, Simply Red have released many mesmerising and beautiful songs. Hucknall is an incredible singer and lyricist. Their songs never fail to uplift me.

Via their official YouTube page, here are my favourites:



So glad I discovered the band many years ago.

Anyone a fan?

I had the first album I think... Holding Back The Years and Money's Too Tight To Mention were on it, the pre-CD era (just). I know they continued to be big in England but I'd say they fell off the radar here after that album. Kind of like Big Country did. I later bought a best of CD for both of them and that's still all I have. I was tempted though to buy the Classic Albums DVD for their Stars album as much because I usually really enjoy those Classic Albums docs. Is Stars generally considered their greatest album?

Oh yes, Rebecca, STARS is often at the top of most people's lists.
