Hughes Fan

Would it surprise anyone if Taylor Swift were a big fan of John Hughes?

I do indeed hear it.  In fact, the new collaboration by Swift and fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, “Sweeter Than Fiction” . . .

. . . sounds more than a little bit like Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark’s “If You Leave” . . .

. . . which was featured in the classic teen flick Pretty in Pink from John Hughes (here memorialized by Pretty in Pink star, Molly Ringwald).

It seems fitting that the new song was also recorded for a soundtrack.  It will run over the end credits of the upcoming film, One Chance.
