The Best Years of Our Lives (aka Glory for Me and Home Again) is a 1946 American drama film directed by William Wyler, and starring Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Dana Andrews, Teresa Wright, Virginia Mayo, and Harold Russell

The acclaimed latest album by Simple Minds ‘Walk Between Worlds’ OUT NOW ! Get it Now ! "Sounding. and like they’re having the time of their live. oyous the band's best album in decades" The Sunday Times. are making their best music of the century.

We were really finding our feet then, that it was our thing coming together. This is Simple Minds. Years of incessant touring had given Forbes, Burchill and MacNeil a fearsome musical chemistry. Here, Kerr floats around the sound, jabbing his obtuse lyrics – Air mobility, dress ability, tranquil, You’ll never meet again – like an ethereal boxer. That was the climate into which Simple Minds released the best album of their career, an album of almost g positivity and ethereal wonderment. Kerr’s vocals are possibly his most masterly, bridging the great divide between the new romantic era and Sinatra-like crooners.

In 1985 Jim Kerr, Charlie Burchill, and Michael MacNeil produced an album that elevated them to superstardom and Simple Minds could be considered 'the best band in the world'. Arguably the greatest pop/rock album ever written, 'Once Upon a Time' contained 5 hit records and no 'fillers', indeed, the title track and 'Come a Long Way' were exceptional recordings. Whether, or not, it garnered the critical acclaim it deserved is irrelevant.

This Simple Minds discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Simple Minds albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included Simple Minds singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. List includes Street Fighting Years, Once Upon a Time and more.

By his third album, Steve Harley had developed a strong grasp of how to combine his artistic ambitions with strongly crafted pop tunes that win the casual listener over to his artsy cause. The result was The Best Years of Our Lives, the most successful album of his mid-'70s heyday. This album was a big hit in his native England, thanks to the fact that it spawned two major hit singles.

Oh you'll think it's tragic when that moment first arrives Oh but it's magic It's the best years of our lives. Lost now for the words to tell you the truth Please banter with me the banter of youth. If I knew how to say it, I would say it for you If I knew how to whisper, I'd whisper for you If I knew how to waltz, I'd get up and dance for you If I thought I could run, I'd come running to you To you. I've discovered now how to be fair This I could teach you if only I dare

The Best Years of Our Lives (original title). 2h 50min Drama, Romance, War 29 May 1947 (Mexico). I've just seen the film again in 2005 and after almost 60 years, The Best Years of Our Lives is still a powerful, beautifully acted and well-crafted motion picture.
