    Pretty In Pink is a much better collection than the others. Echo and the Bunnymen - Bring On The Dancing Horses, New Order - Shellshock, Suzanne Vega and Joe Jackson - Left Of Center, OMD - If You Leave, INXS - Do Wot You Do, The Smiths - Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want, Psychedelic Furs - Pretty In Pink, plus songs by Jesse Johnson and Belouis Some. There's no contest.

    I don't recognize any of the songs from Breakfast Club besides Don't You (Forget About Me). Sixteen Candles had If You Were Here - Thompson Twins and True - Spandau Ballet.

    Where was Weird Science on the poll? That soundtrack includes songs by Oingo Boingo, General Public (Tenderness), Killing Joke, Lords Of The New Church, Wall Of Voodoo, Broken Homes and Kim Wilde.

    Definitely Pretty in Pink. It has the most good songs on it.

    I'm with "totallycait" on this one and for the record Ferris didn't have an official Soundtrack, although they should have. This movie introduced bands such as Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Big Audio Dynamite to the world of 80s music.

    The Breakfast Club is a very close second in my book....

    Out of these soundtracks I'd have to go for Pretty In Pink - but my fave John Hughes soundtrack is the one to Some Kind of Wonderful

    I voted for Pretty In Pink because that is the only one that I have heard. I do want the Breakfast Club and Some kind of Wonderful, only becaue I have heard some really good things about them.

    I'd have to say 'Pretty in Pink' is the best overall

    Also added Weird Science and Some Kind of Wonderful to the poll since they were mentioned...

    Re: Which John Hughes Movie?

    Breakfast Club Sndtrk

    I really liked that song Fire in the Twilight by Wang Chung. I remember seeing the music video for it, but I don't remember any chart action for the song itself

    Speaking of The Breakfast Club, I loved the spoof in the 2001 movie Not Another Teen Movie. Paul Gleason returned as Principal Richard Vernon in a cameo role

    Re: Which John Hughes Movie?

    Tough one this and for more than the most obvious differences . . .

    I know about the lack of soundtrack album for Ferris, but it my imagination or was there no soundtrack album release for Wierd Science and a very cut-down release for Sixteen Candles?

    If you can cobble together the disparate tracks that make up the Ferris soundtrack, it's great. I still can't find the Blue Room track, but it's about the only one I'm missing. Particular favourites are Beat City by the Flowerpot Men and the instrumentals - Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want by the Dream Academy and March Of The Swivelheads by the Beat (otherwise known as the English Beat).

    Breakfast Club's kinda cool. The 12" of Don't You is great, as is the 12" special remix of Fire In The Twilight. A couple of great instrumentals, but the whole package doesn't really stand up quite so well without the visuals.

    I always thought I was being short-changed with the Pretty In Pink soundtrack - and I know it's only a minor thing - but putting a cover of Nik Kershaw's Wouldn't It Be Good by the risible Danny Hutton Hitters on it was unforgiveable, licencing rights or no. Left Of Centre is a fantastic track, as is Shellshock. Never really say the point of If You Leave though - just didn't do anything for me.

    And talking of being hard done by, why couldn't the Some Kind Of Wonderful soundtrack include Abuse by Propaganda (the opening track)? It's got enough Stephen "Tea Towel" Duffy on it to choke a camel. Either way, Can't Help Falling In Love by Lick The Tins is a lovely take on the Elvis track. Who else would've liked to have seen how Back To The Future would've turned out in that alternate universe where Eric Stoltz was Marty mcFly?

    And somewhat off topic - how the hell did MCA have the balls to release the Secret Of My Success soundtrack without the 2 biggest tracks of the film on it - Oh Yeah by Yellow and Walking On Sunshine by Katrina And The Waves?

    It's outrageous. If I had the time or the inclination I'd protest, but I really can't be arsed.

    Cool Re: Which John Hughes Movie?

    ALL are great but "The Breakfast Club" really stands the test of time! Still find myself watching it when re-run on TV a LITTLE bit more than the others!

    MOVIE: Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Soundtrack: Without a doubt PIP ... excellent songs top to bottom.

    Thou it was hard to pick a favorite movie of his since ... well with him being born in Lansing, Michigan and all.

    Re: Which John Hughes Movie?

    What I forgot to mention was just how, ahem, dull Hughes is (or rather, sounds).

    As far as I know, the only one of his films with a commentary is Ferris. I had really high hopes for this - bearing in mind his 80s body of work, I was expecting something really good, anecdotes, funnies etc.

    All I can say is very, very disappointing. He sounds desperately dull to the point of being detached from the whole process which I find a little sad. He should take a leaf out of Joel Schumacher's book - his commentary on St.Elmo's was very good and he obviosly had a ball making that film.

    Still, like everything else, it's just a job at the end of the day.
