Lesser Remembered Songs from John Hughes Film Soundtracks

Oh sure, you remember Pretty in Pink by the Psychedelic Furs. And Don't You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds.

But there were other songs on his soundtracks. Here are some of my favorite lesser known tracks:

Sigue Sigue Sputnik. "Love Missle F1-11" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.


Charlie Sexton "Beat So Lonely." Some Kind of Wonderful.


Flesh for Lulu. "I Go Crazy." Some Kind of Wonderful


Kate Bush. "This Woman's Work." From She's Having a Baby

Now, I know this is a pretty well known song and Maxwell is enjoying success covering Kate Bush, but did you know the song was in a John Hughes film? Easy enough to forget.


OMD. "Tesla Girls." From Weird Science.


RIP John Hughes.

Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work" is one of the greatest songs ever written. Love it.
