from exclaim: John Hughes, the director behind such 80s classics as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, has died. Hughes suffered a heart attack and could not be revived, various media outlets report. He was 59.
He will be missed.
Seems fitting to mention that 11 years ago Endearing Records did a tribute to John Hughes called ‘Pretty In Pop: Songs From The Films of John Hughes’. You can head here to check out some of the covers.
