In Memory of John Hughes.......

John Hughes passed away at the mere age of 59 of cardiac arrest. At one time or another, we have all watched one of John Hughes' 80's films that were featured frequently in those times. Not only was John important for the contribution that he made to film, but for the songs and soundtracks that accompanied these films. I remember a song just about as much as I remember the names of the characters in his movies. A list of some of the movies that John has done.
