About this deal

In limited edition deluxe edition form the 4CD set comes in a larger outer box with a 14-track cassette and re-issue of the 7” single ‘Beat City’ / ‘I’m Afraid’, originally distributed to the John Hughes fan club mailing list upon the release of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

If there is a certificate we’ve missed out on then it’s probably for a 50 metre swim badge at the local swimming baths. The song was featured during the school dance scene in Sixteen Candles and is the first time an Oingo Boingo song appeared in a major motion picture. The sound quality of the vinyl is very good and comes assembled in a nice package with a booklet that gives the backstory on the songs. Steve Earle - Continental Trailways Blues (Album Version) From The 1987 Movie Planes, Trains And Automobiles 6.The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus trackby-track sleeve notes. Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was cassettes by Fedex. Demon Music group in conjunction with the Hughes family are proud to present the first official compilation of music from the movies of legendary filmmaker John Hughes, covering the classic eighties period 1983 – 1989. I understand these songs were from John's movies, but I have played this side the least, no offense to the late great Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, or the other great artist on these records. John said he only made movies so he could choose what music to put in them, so as his success at the Box Office grew, and thus his power with the studios, the number of tracks in his films, by up-and-coming UK bands, steadily grew.

A 4CD boxset offers 74 tracks and features music from Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Planes, Trains And Automobiles, She’s Having A Baby, The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck. I love John Hughes 80s movies and as soon as I saw the words Rhythm of Life from Uncle Buck and Holiday Road from National Lampoon's Vacation I knew I had to have this album. The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track- by-track sleeve notes. Whether Cameron Frye staring at the painting in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off set to The Dream Academy’s “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want (Instrumental)”, Duckie and Andie from Pretty In Pink at prom set to Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s “If You Leave”, or even Neal and Del’s classic “Those aren’t pillows” scene from Planes, Trains and Automobiles set to Emmylou Harris’ “Back In Baby’s Arms”.Great sounding set, especially considering that widely varying conditions and environments each song was recorded in. As well as the characters and stories created in these iconic movies, what made John Hughes’ movies different from the rest was the symbiotic relationship between scene and music.
