Thanks for sharing this info on JH film music.

It looks pretty comprehensive, but I think for most people, they prefer the window of films from 1984-1987 for new wavers.

Pretty in Pink, The Breakfast Club and Some Kind of Wonderful are available on Itunes for download.

Sixteen Candles was a mini LP or EP of sorts when it was released.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off never had an official release.
Weird Science was a full record but many of the songs were available (or forgettable).
She's Having Baby was OK but the ST had a Boy side and a Girl side to the music.

It would be nice to release Ferris Bueller ST officially for download.

I worked at record store in the 80's and the John Hughes STs were very popular!

An expanded pretty in pink album would be good.

So many tunes left off the soundtrack album
