UPDATE: YOU MAY EXPERIENCE SOME SLOWNESS AND/OR BRIEF DOWNTIMES TODAY AS THIS POST WAS MENTIONED ON USA TODAY’S POP CANDY (THANKS, WHITNEY!) AND THUS EXPERIENCING HUGE AMOUNTS OF TRAFFIC. TRYING TO WORK THROUGH IT….
i think it goes without saying that if you are a child of the 80′s at least one john hughes film, if not most of em, made some kind of impact on your life. for me, my hands down favorite hughes film is vacation, which remains in my top 5 favorite films of all time. i of course didnt get a lot of the jokes, but what i did get was christie brinkley – who at the time was the most gorgeous creature i had ever laid my eyes on. its amazing the kind of impression the thought of a beautiful woman skinny dipping can do to such a young lad. the great thing about vacation is that it grew up with me, i didnt grow out of it. most of which is due to my love of sophomoric humour, which hasnt changed since i was 9. as i aged, i got the jokes and innuendos, and christie brinkley was staying forever hot, which only deepened my appreciation for it. i am sure i am due for a vacation like experience one day, i just got a feeling….
and of course, there is ferris bueller’s day off, which oddly enough never got a proper soundtrack release. hughes felt that the diverse collection of songs wouldnt work so well together. so, somewhere along the line a fan or fans created this unofficial soundtrack taking the songs and intermingling them with soundbites from the film.
