Alive And Kicking

Lyrics

You turn me on, you lift me up
And like the sweetest cup I'd share with you
You lift me up, don't you ever stop, I'm here with you

Now it's all or nothing

I just love that song Alive and Kicking Jim, Charlie, and Mel made a great song. Keep it going Alive and Kicking!!
Jus makes you want to dance for no reason! Just live life like it's going out of style or jump around like no ones watching! Such an inspiring song! Keep being alive and kicking !
Awesome song
I have a simple mind.
Grad nite, Disney World 1985, good times;)
In the final seconds whose gonna save you...hopefu l l y my love.
Jim Kerr performed with The Call when I saw the concert back in the 80 s powerful stuff people were dancing in the aisles
I love the live CD of this song. They did a whole concert live on CD and it's hard to get but I have it... for life!!! Yay. Oh the woman has a set of lungs in this song at the end.. Wow!!
Whenever I hear Simple Minds, I think of the movie The Breakfast Club I think this groups best CD release was their live version. It was a powerful performance while they were at the peak of their careers. How many of you knew this was a Scottish band? Yeah, they were.
♥ 80's
I love the rhythm of this song!

Jim, Charlie and the boys are the "best" from Glasgow. Saw them so many times and still love them even now 35 years on! Sanctify Yourself!
Despite its success, Alive and Kicking has not endured as well as Don't You Forget About Me.
Saw these guys ar The Greek Theatre in '85 and they were great.
Oh I'm alive and kicking! Yes! :)
This is best band of the 80' and early 90'... SM for ever!!!
great song is this band still together

I love the 80's!!!?

No decade had better music that so defined us as the second lost generation.
Saw Simple Minds in a small NY club. Outstanding !!!!!

Stay until your love is....
This song has drive to it Hell Yeah. Tha bass is kicken.
Who shakes their head to the drum and bass when it kicks in... Almost automaticall y
I always thought the video was way cool...but now when I go back and watch it...what is up with the creepy stares into the camera...heh . Still love it though.
Possibly the best song of the decade.
Teh lead singer resembles the actor...
I love this song and have heard it hundreds of times yet all I know is the chorus.
The background female singer makes this song even better!!!!!
I like this one... but I can't really explain why. The melody is really catchy to me.
Really, this song touch my deeper heart fiber.
We are all singing and dancing along on this Sunday night in 2011.

Few decades had so much variety of music. Great song, very memorable.
This is just an all over good song!
