Now for my only complaint…how could they leave out Oingo Boingo’s “Wild Sex (In The Working Class)” from this set? It's a shame that in 2022 we still have "mastering engineers" that don't understand the beauty of a large dynamic range. The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track-by-track sleeve notes. I've listened to these records several times and I'm very pleased at the care taken to "hand pick" the songs, and the quality mastering to make each song sound so great.

It also includes a 14 track cassette, and re-issue of the 7” single “Beat City” / “I’m Afraid” originally distributed to the fan club mailing list upon the release of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track- by-track sleeve notes. Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was the cassette, by Fedex.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. 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. Listening to this set 2 or 3 songs at a time is about all I can manage before my ears become so fatigued that I have to stop and come back to it later. 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”.

Curated by John Hughes’ music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, this 4CD boxset includes 74 tracks from the movies National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Planes, Trains And Automobiles, She’s Having A Baby, The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck. 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. The deluxe CD and LP sets go deep, including songs that were in movies but didn’t make it onto official soundtracks — like The Rave Ups‘ “Positively Lost Me” (from Pretty in Pink), Propaganda’s “Abuse” (from Some Kind of Wonderful), The Revillos‘ “Rev Up! Great sounding set, especially considering that widely varying conditions and environments each song was recorded in. Until his final days, he was still collecting outrageous amounts of music from around the world, galaxies removed from the New Romantic and new wave sounds that, to many, still define him.

The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus trackby-track sleeve notes. So many songs that I have always dreamed of having on an official soundtrack are (for the most part) included as a group from the films that punctuated my teenage years. 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.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.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. 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. Also includes an extensive 24-page booklet including memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track-by-track sleeve notes. Later this year Demon Music will release Life Moves Pretty Fast: The John Hughes Mixtapes, the first official compilation of music from the movies of the legendary filmmaker, John Hughes.

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. 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.Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was cassettes by Fedex. 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.
