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. John said he only made movies so he could choose what music to put in them, so as his success at the Box Office grew, and thus his power with the studios, the number of tracks in his films, by up and coming UK bands, steadily grew. The 4CD booklet includes memories from Matthew Broderick, James Hughes, Tarquin Gotch, Ron Payne, plus trackby-track sleeve notes.

A 4CD boxset offers 74 tracks and features music from Pretty In Pink, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Some Kind Of Wonderful, Planes, Trains And Automobiles, She’s Having A Baby, The Great Outdoors and Uncle Buck. Now for my only complaint…how could they leave out Oingo Boingo’s “Wild Sex (In The Working Class)” from this set?It is an amazing box set chock full of goodies and great liners that’ll make you feel sixteen again. from Sixteen Candles) — and comes with a John Hughes mixtape cassette, and a reproduction of the 7″ single of The Flowerpot Men’s “Beat City” / Blue Room “I’m Afraid” that promoted Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and was only sent to members of the John Hughes Fan Club. Back when we were working on these movie soundtracks, the best way to send music around the world was cassettes by Fedex. I understand these songs were from John's movies, but I have played this side the least, no offense to the late great Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, or the other great artist on these records.

I love John Hughes 80s movies and as soon as I saw the words Rhythm of Life from Uncle Buck and Holiday Road from National Lampoon's Vacation I knew I had to have this album. The sound quality of the vinyl is very good and comes assembled in a nice package with a booklet that gives the backstory on the songs. 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.The deluxe CD and LP sets go deep, including songs that were in movies but didn’t make it onto official soundtracks — like The Rave Ups‘ “Positively Lost Me” (from Pretty in Pink), Propaganda’s “Abuse” (from Some Kind of Wonderful), The Revillos‘ “Rev Up! I've listened to these records several times and I'm very pleased at the care taken to "hand pick" the songs, and the quality mastering to make each song sound so great. The packaging is wonderful and the booklet providing insight why these particular songs were placed in John's movies will make any music and movie lover drool over the stories here. Great sounding set, especially considering that widely varying conditions and environments each song was recorded in. In addition to the deluxe 4CD edition there is a standard 4CD bookset which obviously doesn’t include the extras from the deluxe and in terms of vinyl you can choose from a 73-track red vinyl 6LP box set or a 2LP black vinyl summary.
