About the Soundtrack

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is the classic 1986 comedy starring Matthew Broderick as high school slacker Ferris Bueller. The film follows Ferris as he tries to skip school for a day and have an adventure in downtown Chicago with his best friend Cameron Frye and girlfriend Sloane Peterson. Along the way, they visit many of Chicago's iconic landmarks and have a series of comedic misadventures. With its memorable characters, smart dialogue, and fun soundtrack, it's no wonder that this movie has become an enduring classic. Featuring classic hits like "Love Missile F1-11" by Sigue Sigue Sputnik and "Star Wars" by John Williams which can be heard when the two valet parking attendants take Cameron's father's Ferrari on a joyride through the Chicago Metro Area. The soundtrack perfectly captures the spirit of the movie. It also features music from artists such as Wayne Newton, The Dream Academy, and General Public that reflect the light-hearted tone of Ferris' quest to have an unforgettable day off. The movie is filled with memorable scenes, from Ferris singing "Twist and Shout" atop a parade float to his race against time to get home before his parents discover he's skipped school. The soundtrack of this film is also noteworthy, featuring songs from Yello, The Beat, and the legendary Beatles. In particular, the song "Oh Yeah" is an iconic part of the movie which can be heard whenever Ferris is up to something mischievous. Today, over 30 years after its release, the soundtrack remains a beloved classic and essential piece of any rewatching of this timeless comedy.
