Life Moves Pretty Fast: The John Hughes Mixtapes - 2LP

£31.99

Released: 11th November 2022. Compilation of music from the movies of legendary filmmaker John Hughes, covering the classic eighties period. 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, 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 Simple Minds' classic 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' in The Breakfast Club. Curated by John Hughes' music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, this 2LP vinyl release includes 25 tracks from the movies 'Sixteen Candles', 'The Breakfast Club', 'Weird Science', 'Pretty in Pink', 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off', 'Some Kind of Wonderful', 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' and 'She's Having a Baby'.
