Molly Ringwald is releasing her first album this week, and one of the tracks on her collection of jazz covers pays homage to the 45-year-old's Brat Pack days. 

The CD, Except...Sometimes, includes a sensuous cover of Simple Minds' Don't You (Forget About Me), the iconic theme for Ringwald's 1985 classic film, The Breakfast Club.

"It's the only contemporary song on the album and I think it has a special place in my heart because of my past," she explained to ET of why the '80s mega-hit was selected to join her compilation of jazz standards. "It's dedicated to (Breakfast Club director) John Hughes, so I really love that one."
