Well, they weren't quite that big over here, I'm afraid...

Dutch discography

Don't forget me (when I'm gone)   (bubbling under-section of Dutch Top 40)
Thin red line (#74 in Dutch Mega Top 100)

Note: Dutch Top 40 has been around since 1965 and is considered *THE* national hitlist. It has a bubbling under-section of 30 Tips.
Dutch Mega Top 100 started in 1974, and has also been a Top 50 for some time (1993 - 1996).

It's good to see they had some international exposure  :)  There are many Canadian artists who never get that chance  :(

'Don't Forget Me'...the only one of theirs I'm overly familiar with...

I must point out that though it only just cracked our Top 30, it was hardly ever off the radio...

Just one of those songs that, despite the airplay, never really prised open the public's collective wallet over here...

They also had a UK top 40 in 1991 with the Rod Stewart duet "My Town" :)

I recently picked up a used CD copy of The Thin Red Line album. I liked the whole thing.
"Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone" is hands down my favorite tune by them though, although "Someday" is also really, really good.

Only one of theirs I really remember is "Don't Forget Me." I can't seem to call any of those others to mind, and it's always the one I think of when I hear the name Glass Tiger.

I updated the first post with a Discography for the UK and North America

As always, my favourite Glass Tiger tune is "My Song" :)

I chose My Town, but I liked a lot of their music. If I'm not mistaken, I remember 2 different videos for Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone, but I have a hard time remembering anything nowadays

There was two videos for it yes.  One had them attending a wedding, and one showed them performing on stage

The one that I remember the most was the video with the little kid lipsyncing to Bryan Adam's part in the song. I think I only saw the other one once or twice.

That one with the kid was the wedding version.  I believe the version where they are on stage was the one that was released for the international market
