...gut...
****
tönt wie Blancmange
*****
Sehr eingängig.
****
Immerhin der erste Top 20-Hit der Gruppe in England. Aus der CD "New Gold Dream" von 1982. Ziemlich eingängig, aber mir ist das Ding noch zu wenig in einem Guss. Verpasst knapp die 5.
*****
Wave vom Feinsten. Unverwechselbare Vocals von Jim Kerr.
*****
Good song.
****
gut
***
Sorry Leute, da muss ich etwas den Schnitt drücken. Klingt doch ziemlich langweilig und belanglos.
****
1982 "Promised You a Miracle" #13 UK
*****
Ein guter Song aus den frühen Jahren von Simple Minds. Schon damals hat die Stimme von Jim Kerr begeistert. Vom New Wave ist der Sound stark beeinflusst.
*****
Sehr gut.

Erste von 19 Hits in NL.... auf Platz # 25 im Frühling 1982 !...sehr guter anfang von ein sehr erfolgreiche periode !
******
Kaum zu glauben, dass die durchschnittliche Bewertung nur bei 4.42 liegt! Einer der besten Simple Minds-Songs vom besten Simple Minds-Album!
****
würde er wie boy george singen, der song würde vom sound eher zu culture club passen..tatsächlich denke ich dabei aber immer als erstes an ABC :-)

▓ Goede debuutsingle in Holland van de formatie "Simple Minds" uit mei 1982 !!! Het Nederlandse publiek geloofde er toen nog niet in, en kocht de plaat niet !!! Vandaar dat de heren al naar een maandje waren vertrokken uit de hitlijsten !!! Stom, het is en blijft een goede plaat !!! Ook vanmij dus 5 sterren !!! (NL Top 40: 4 wk / # 24) !!!
******
Könnte man als Strandsong bezeichnen!

Der verspricht mehr als er hält. Seelenloses Gedudel.
****
ok
******
Toller Synth Pop von einer eigentlichen Post Punk-Band.
***
Matige plaat van the Simple Minds.
****
passabel
****
gefällt mir persönlich nicht so gut, erinnert natürlich ganz stark an die damalige "New-Wave-Zeit"
****
Da höre ich ja noch fast klassische Disco-Einflüsse. Mir gefielen die irisch angehauchten S.M. besser.
***
Mag New Wave eigentlich recht gerne, aber das ist mir dann doch etwas zu langweilig.
******
Heerlijke eerste kennismaking met Simple Minds. Geweldig nummer en dito refrein.
*****
De 1e single van Simple Minds die ik ken. Was afkomstig van het meesterwerk "New Gold Dream". Mooie single!!!!
****
kaum zu glauben, aber die simple minds hören sich hier für mich wie eine Mischung aus the cure und billy idol an.
****
Grote hit in 1982. Deze 'Promised you a miracle' vind ik persoonlijk nochtans één van de mindere songs uit hun album 'New gold dream'. Naar boven afgerond vier sterren.

Naja
*****
Einer der ersten Titel, die ich von den Jungs kannte ... zeitlos.
****
solide Scheibe aus der New Wave-Ära – 4*…
****
Leuke eerste singel voor de Simple Minds, ze werden alsmaar beter however, en als ik dit nummer met de nummers van hen uit 1985 vergelijk vind ik dit toch echt wel veel minder.
***
Ik vind dit zeker niet d ebeste single van The Simple Minds. Nog wel 3 sterren.
***
Ok
****
...gefällt mir gut, die Stimme hat was....
*****
Great rock/synth track of the early '80s. One of their earlier hits, with many more to come.
***
Peaked at #10 in Australia, 1982.
*****
Nice song

Bra låt ... men, för mig, inget av de bästa numren från New Gold Dream....
****
knapp passabel...
****
nett, aber nicht mehr
*****
Geen grootse tekst, maar de plaat klinkt wel lekker.
****
Guter, sphärischer Yuppie-Wave-Rock aus dem m.E. besten "Simple Minds"-Album "New Gold Dream 81, 82, 83..."! Bestens geeignet als Discohymne - bringt jede 80er-Fete zum Kochen! und ein kleines +!!!
*****
Ist mir 5* wert.
**
Ziemlich schwacher Song einer deutlich überbewerteten Band. 2+
*****
Riktigt bra låt.
*****
Unbedingt in der Live-Version (aus "In The City Of Light") geniessen. Erst hier entfaltet der Song seine ganze Kraft und Tiefe, schlägt die matte Studiofassung bei Weitem.
*****
5 stars
*****
Gut.
*****
Sexy song und vid!
****
Ich war von der Band nie so begeistert! Eine handvoll guter Singles, aber das war´s für mich auch! Die erste wirklich starke Single von denen fand ich erst "Don´t you (forget about me)", alles andere davor fand ich nur mittelmässig!
****
Sympathisches Werk, das damals vollständig an mir vorbei ging.
