My husband and I attended both high school and college in the 80s, resulting in us being huge fans of the decade's music for life--we even had all 80s music at our recent wedding! This album is part of our vast 80s music collection; it's such a must-have that we bought a replacement when our old CD player destroyed our original copy. The songs wil take you back both to the movie and to the decade, starting with the title track, "Pretty in Pink," a huge mainstream hit by a non-mainstream group, the Psycedelic Furs. Other hits from the album include OMD's "If You Leave" and "Left of Center" by Suzanne Vega. My favorite, however, is "Wouldn't it Be Good," a Nik Kershaw tune nicely covered here by the Danny Hutton Hitters. Finally, fans of more obscure 80s groups such as New Order are likely to enjoy the remaining songs on this tape. For the sake of both nostalgia and the music itself, this album is a must-have addition to any 80s collection.
