To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus track- by-track sleeve notes.The song was featured during the school dance scene in Sixteen Candles and is the first time an Oingo Boingo song appeared in a major motion picture. Later this year Demon Music will release Life Moves Pretty Fast: The John Hughes Mixtapes, the first official compilation of music from the movies of the legendary filmmaker, John Hughes.

The collections are issued in conjunction with the Hughes family and have been curated by Hughes’ music supervisor Tarquin Gotch, covering the classic eighties period 1983 – 1989.

Until his final days, he was still collecting outrageous amounts of music from around the world, galaxies removed from the New Romantic and new wave sounds that, to many, still define him.
