Oh yeah! 30 years later, we're getting a 'Ferris Bueller' soundtrack



John Hughes movies are beloved not only for their characters but also for their music. You’re eyeing your Pretty in Pink vinyl right now, aren’t you? Okay, now browse around and find that soundtrack for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Can’t do it. It doesn’t really exist.

Urban legend has it that Hughes - sometimes as prickly as he was unpredictable - felt the songs in the movie didn’t flow well together, so an album wasn’t needed. That mistake is about to be fixed. reports that La-La Land Records has reached an agreement with Paramount Pictures to release an “authorized” soundtrack for Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Its release could come as early as September.
