Description

Demon Music group, in conjunction with the Hughes family, present the first official compilation of music from the movies of legendary filmmaker John Hughes, curated by Hughes' music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, covering the classic eighties period from 1983-1989. The 74 tracks on the deluxe 4CD+cassette+7" single box set feature music from Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, National Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Planes, Trains And Automobiles, She's Having A Baby, The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck.

The films of John Hughes are some of the most iconic of the 1980s, and they have created a lasting cultural impact still felt and referenced across TV, film and music. As well as the characters and stories created in the films, what made John Hughes' movies different from the rest was the symbiotic relationship between what was happening on screen and music. Whether Cameron Frye staring at the painting in Ferris Bueller's Day Off set to The Dream Academy's "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What", Duckie and Andie from Pretty In Pink at prom set to Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark's "If You Leave", or Neal and Del's classic "Those aren't pillows" scene from Planes, Trains and Automobiles set to Emmylou Harris' "Back In Baby's Arms".

John and his team revolutionized the way music was used in movies, commissioning artists such as Kate Bush ("This Woman's Work" for She's Having A Baby) and OMD ("If You Leave" for Pretty In Pink) to write new song and giving bands such as Simple Minds and The Psychedelic Furs their biggest hits. Life Moves Pretty Fast, named for the famous quip by Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, documents the influence that music in Hughes' movies had, which is still felt today in the work of Quentin Tarantino to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and beyond.

The set also features imagery of the tapes that John played on set as well as compilations that he made and exclusive interviews and memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne as well as track-by-track sleeve notes.
