If there’s a continuous thread through John Hughes’ movies of the 1980s and 1990s –– from Sixteen Candles to The Breakfast Club, from Planes, Trains & Automobiles to Home Alone –– it’s not Molly Ringwald. Nope: It’s not John Candy, either.

It’s music.

Whether Hughes wrote, directed, produced or did all three jobs at once, he helped create unforgettable movies that, time and again, produced memorable musical moments.
