Few filmmakers managed to capture the awkward coming-of-age catastrophes of '80s teens the way John Hughes did, just as few soundtracks encapsulate the sound of an era better than this one does. It's not the best 1986 had to offer, but it's a cohesive whole, transporting the listener to that other time, imagined or otherwise. There's enough variety to ensure that it doesn't become wallpaper, and very little filler. "Left of Center" by Suzanne Vega, with Joe Jackson on piano, is tremendous and transcends generations. Psychedelic Furs frontman Richard Butler has long been bemused about Hughes not taking Molly Ringwald's character's name from the title song, which inspired the film, but everyone was paying too much attention to what Ducky was wearing to notice anyway. --Scott Wilson

However, if you are looking for Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" (Duckie sings this to Molly in Trax), or if you are looking for songs performed in the club by that group with the big hair (heheh), DON'T LOOK HERE!! The group in the night club is The Rave-Ups and Amazon has their CD to purchase (it's an import), and you will just have to buy an Otis Redding CD to get that song.
My favorite song is of course, "If You Leave", but "Wouldn't it Be Good" and "Get to Know Ya" (this guy sounds frightingly like Prince!) are some of my other favorites. What are you waiting for?! Buy this album!!
