Pequeño homenaje a John Hughes con uno de los soundtracks --¿el soundtrack?-- de mi adolescencia. Ya sé que la película no la dirigió, pero la escribió, la produjo y es, en todo sentido, una película suya.
The title song by the Psychedelic Furs was the actual inspiration for the movie and was re-recorded for this soundtrack. It had been released in 1981 for the album Talk Talk Talk. "Left of Center" was also re-recorded. The first track, "If You Leave", was written in 1985 in advance specifically for the movie. In addition to their song "Shell Shock", New Order also had "Thieves Like Us Instrumental" and "Elegia" appear in the movie but not on the soundtrack. The Rave-Ups, who do appear in the movie, do not have any songs on the soundtrack. Nik Kershaw's "Wouldn't It Be Good" was re-recorded by former Three Dog Night vocalist Danny Hutton's band, Danny Hutton Hitters.
The movie also includes an Otis Redding song, "Try a Little Tenderness", that Duckie lipsyncs to, which is not on the official soundtrack.
