John Hughes Tribute #2: Ferris Beuller's Day Off


This cult teen-romance movie from John Hughes came out in 1986, but is still quoted today: especially the scene where Ferris' teacher (with the nasally voice) is taking roll call. "Beuller? Beuller? Beuller??..................Anyone? Anyone?"

The movie stars Matthew Broderick as Ferris, who plans and implements an epic senior skip-day for the ages. He is joined by his girlfriend Sloane (Mia Sara) and his best friend Cameron (Alan Ruck) as they trapeze through Chicago, visiting such landmarks as the Sears Tower, The Art Institute of Chicago, and, most impressively, Wrigley Field.

Meanwhile back in school, Ferris' sister Jeanie (Jennifer Grey) and the evil Dean of Students try to catch Ferris in the act. Hilarity ensues.

Below you will find 3 videos of songs from the movie that I felt captured it's spirit. If you reached this through a facebook link, click "Indie-Ahh" to get the videos. Enjoy!
