Few filmmakers managed to capture the awkward coming-of-age catastrophes of '80s teens the way John Hughes did, just as few soundtracks encapsulate the sound of an era better than this one does. It's not the best 1986 had to offer, but it's a cohesive whole, transporting the listener to that other time, imagined or otherwise. There's enough variety to ensure that it doesn't become wallpaper, and very little filler. "Left of Center" by Suzanne Vega, with Joe Jackson on piano, is tremendous and transcends generations. Psychedelic Furs frontman Richard Butler has long been bemused about Hughes not taking Molly Ringwald's character's name from the title song, which inspired the film, but everyone was paying too much attention to what Ducky was wearing to notice anyway

This, along with The Breakfast Club & Some Kind Of Wonderful are superb 80's movies. Order the soundtrack for Xmas as the kids never know what to buy me :)

Thanks Andywedge!
Great film and a great price. Already got it otherwise would have ordered. Heat added.
This isn't the original "raw" version of Pretty in Pink though; this is the saxophone-infused "neutered" version:whistling: - must have spent ages as a kid trying to "decipher" the lyrics at the end of the original version:-D
