Simple Minds - New Gold Dream ft. Laurel and Hardy
Simple Minds meet Laurel and Hardy? Well, I'm a huge fan of both, and this very funny video features Stan and Ollie dancing to New Gold Dream. The clip used is actually from the classic movie Way Out West and has been brilliantly edited to sync almost perfectly with the song.
New Gold Dream is the title track from the Scottish band's fifth studio album, but was never released as a single. However, it did enter the charts during the 1990's (sort of!) when Usura sampled a good part of the song for their dance hit Open Your Mind. Released in September 1982, New Gold Dream was the first Simple Mind's album to bring commercial success with hit singles Promised You A Miracle, Glittering Prize and Someone, Somewhere in Summertime.
