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. As well as the characters and stories created in these iconic movies, what made John Hughes’ movies different from the rest was the symbiotic relationship between scene and music.Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was cassettes by Fedex.

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. Now for my only complaint…how could they leave out Oingo Boingo’s “Wild Sex (In The Working Class)” from this set? Also includes an extensive 24-page booklet including 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. It is an amazing box set chock full of goodies and great liners that’ll make you feel sixteen again.So many songs that I have always dreamed of having on an official soundtrack are (for the most part) included as a group from the films that punctuated my teenage years. Great sounding set, especially considering that widely varying conditions and environments each song was recorded in. Demon Music group in conjunction with the Hughes family are proud to present the first official compilation of music from the movies of legendary filmmaker John Hughes, covering the classic eighties period 1983 – 1989. It's a shame that in 2022 we still have "mastering engineers" that don't understand the beauty of a large dynamic range.
