‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ soundtrack will finally be released, 30 years later

Believe it or not, there’s never actually been an official soundtrack release for the 1986 John Hughes classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Now, to celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, an official soundtrack will finally be released later this year (specific date TBA). The surprising reason there never was a soundtrack release: Hughes didn’t think anybody would want one. “I mean,” he said in an interview, “would kids want ‘Danke Schöen’ and ‘Oh Yeah’ on the same record?” We’re about to find out.
