Along with the movie, there was the soundtrack filled with alternative (80s style) songs. Who can forget OMD, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Smiths, INXS, New Order and The Psychedelic Furs? Ah, the memories. I had the cassette and thought I was so cool. Emphasis on thought.
Let's just take a moment and reflect on how cool Molly Ringwald was. She spoke for a generation of preteen and teenage girls. I guess she was the Hanna Montana and Hilary Duff of the 80s. Maybe. Remember Sixteen Candles? Oh. My. Goodness. Teenage classic!
