Inspired by and featuring the Psychedelic Furs track ‘Pretty In Pink’, this quintessential John Hughes movie is a story of teenage love, high school troubles and social cliques that's both of-its-time (its time being the '80s) and in thrall to the cosy certainties of '50s America.
The film also features New Order tracks ‘Shell-Shock’, ‘Thieves Like Us (Instrumental)’, ensuring that the soundtrack has aged well, even if the on-screen drama hasn't.
