For anyone growing up in the 1980s, the films of John Hughes are some of the most iconic of the decade and have created a lasting cultural impact still felt and referenced across TV, film and music.

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. 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”. “Music was a huge part of filmmaking for him, it was a thing he seemed to like the most.” Matthew Broderick Curated by John Hughes’ music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, this Limited Deluxe Edition 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 . 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 “Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was the cassette, by Fedex . We sent John cassettes of newly released music, of demos, of just finished mixes (and in return he would send VHS videos of the scenes that needed music).” Tarquin Gotch. The films of John Hughes spawned many classic tracks, some licensed for the films, some commission specifically, and many going on to become huge international hits from acts such as Simple Minds, Kate Bush, Furniture, Yello , and The Psychedelic Furs. “It serves as a reminder not just to the musicians he championed in the 1980s, but to how intensely his search for music expanded beyond this era. 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.” James Hughes The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track by track sleeve notes. “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.” Tarquin Gotch.
