  • This was featured in the 1985 movie The Breakfast Club. In The Breakfast Club, five high school students with very different personalities spend a Saturday together in detention and find some common ground. The question is, will they remember their time together and act any differently around each other when they return to school and face peer pressure to act their roles. Some dialog in the film when they bring this up gave Keith Forsey the idea for the title.
  • Im pretty sure it is about people that went out in high school, but loose touch during college, lives, etc. He doesn’t want to fit that stereotype.
  • I remember all the people I went to school with for many years and learned to know at parties/clubs etc. Today it is impossible to greet any of them when you suddenly meet them at the street years later. We all just walk on by. I rejoice at these really obnoxious moments, because then I know that love is the greatest thing and what most of us all seek to find in our life. Love.
