Simple Minds - On The Waterfront b/w Hunter And The Hunted (Live) (1983) - single

"Waterfront" is a 1983 single from Simple Minds, the first release from the album Sparkle in the Rain.
Featuring a new, rockier sound, "Waterfront" scaled the charts in various countries around the world, including hitting #1 for two weeks in New Zealand.
It also reached #13 on the UK Singles Charts. Today, it is a live favorite and is regarded as a Simple Minds signature song.
It features a bass line consisting of a single note (D) throughout.
The version as released on 7" vinyl single (and on the original Now That's What I Call Music compilation) differs from versions available on CD.
The original single didn't feature the repetitive bass-line that leads into the main body of the song, but had a "one, two....one, two, three, four.." drumstick count-in by drummer Mel Gaynor.
It has been used for many years as the song Sheffield Wednesday football club come out to before home matches. The version originally played was a live version, however it has since been changed to the studio recording.
