So John Hughes kicked the bucket yesterday while taking a morning walk in NYC. He directed and wrote so many funny movies. Among -FUPPETS- favorites are Mr. Mom, Breakfast Club, National Lampoon's Vacation and Christmas Vacation, Uncle Buck and Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
One of the many things about John Hughes' movies was their apt use of contemporary music. Here is the greatest title track from a John Hughes film, and this is the original version of the song, not the pussyfied lovey-dove version they did for the actual movie.
PSYCHEDELIC FURS - Pretty In Pink
From the same film, here are the Smiths performing Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want, live.
