About this deal

It's a shame that in 2022 we still have "mastering engineers" that don't understand the beauty of a large dynamic range. 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. 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”.

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. 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. Also includes an extensive 24-page booklet including memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track-by-track sleeve notes.The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus trackby-track sleeve notes.

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

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. 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. 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. Now for my only complaint…how could they leave out Oingo Boingo’s “Wild Sex (In The Working Class)” from this set? 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!

The collections are issued in conjunction with the Hughes family and have been curated by Hughes’ music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, covering the classic eighties period 1983 – 1989.
