The Simple Minds released their album New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84) in 1982. Apart from a few successful singles, there have also been two songs that over the years been sampled and used in dance tracks. The title track New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84) has been sampled in 1992 by the Italian one hit wonder (at least outside Italy) U.S.U.R.A. in their track Open your Mind. It received the usual 90’s cgi video and voilá: a dance hit. Interestingly, the ’97 remix of Open your Mind tossed the Simple Minds sample out the window completely. The intro from another track from the Simple Minds album, Someone, Somewhere In Summertime, popped up as a sample in 2004 in David Guetta’s The World is Mine.

Here’s the title track New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84):
