Tz’s Daily Dose of Decade: John Hughes RIP

In 1986 someone bought me the cassette of the Pretty In Pink soundtrack. Up until that point my musical taste was almost all Metal, with the occasional dose of whatever was on the radio. But there i stood with cassette in hand and it was filled with all of these fantastic artists! Echo & The Bunnymen! New Order! The Smiths! O.M.D.! and of course, The Psychedelic Furs

Thank you John Hughes! Of course your movies were fantastic, but let’s not overlook the soundtracks you gave us. You saved me from a lifetime of listening to some really really bad music, and i thank you from the bottom of my heart. Otherwise, i’d be spending my summers having to see my favorite bands at State Fairs…
