Music at the Movies: “Top Ten Songs From John Hughes Movies”

John Hughes

Calling all film lovers and music buffs! Welcome to another edition of Music at the Movies. Filmed at Chicago’s Logan Theatre, located in the heart of Logan Square, this original series sees host Leah Pickett discuss notable Hollywood releases and their corresponding soundtracks.

This month marks the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ classic The Breakfast Club. In celebration, Leah looks back at Hughes’ entire filmography and ranks the 10 best songs that appear in his movies. Is Yello’s “Oh Yeah” from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off the song that most invokes the 1980s in your mind? Does the iconic “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from The Breakfast Club still make you pump your fist in the air every time? Grab your Molly Ringwald throw pillow and tune in!

Please present your ticket to the usher, purchase all your concessions, and grab a seat because the show is about to start! And be sure to catch these movies and more at the Logan Theatre, a proud sponsor of Music at the Movies.
