About this deal

Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was cassettes by Fedex. 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. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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.

Now for my only complaint…how could they leave out Oingo Boingo’s “Wild Sex (In The Working Class)” from this set? Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was the cassette, by Fedex. 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 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. 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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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. from Sixteen Candles) — and comes with a John Hughes mixtape cassette, and a reproduction of the 7″ single of The Flowerpot Men’s “Beat City” / Blue Room “I’m Afraid” that promoted Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and was only sent to members of the John Hughes Fan Club.The 4CD booklet includes 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.The packaging is wonderful and the booklet providing insight why these particular songs were placed in John's movies will make any music and movie lover drool over the stories here. 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. 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. 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. In addition to the deluxe 4CD edition there is a standard 4CD bookset which obviously doesn’t include the extras from the deluxe and in terms of vinyl you can choose from a 73-track red vinyl 6LP box set or a 2LP black vinyl summary.
