Hypnotised - Simple Minds

'Hypnotised' was the second single taken from the Simple Minds' 1995 album 'Good news from the next world'. The 7" single was a numbered limited edition. This is number 1839.

The single was not as big a success as earlier releases from the band. It reached number 18 in the UK singles chart, but it stalled outside the top 20 in Germany, Ireland and Canada. In other countries, the single didn't even chart. And things would get even worse: subsequent singles were a hit in the UK and sometimes Germany only. Gone were the stadium-filling days of the late Eighties - although the band still manages to fill the bigger concert halls.

My collection: 7" single no. 2399
Found: HMV, London, July 6, 1995
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Hypnotised' / '#4'
