Don’t You Forget About This: THE BREAKFAST CLUB Detention 30th Anniversary

Today marks the 30th Anniversary of the most famous detention in film history.

Saturday, March 24, 1984. 

Dear Mr. Vernon…we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was that we did wrong, what we did was wrong.  But we think you’re crazy to make us write this essay telling you who we think we are, what do you care?  You see us as you want to see us…in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions.  You see us as a brain, an athelete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. 

Celebrate with this special edition music mix featuring audio memories of the moments and music that shaped John Hughes’ movies.

This is hardly a definitive collection, but we hope it serves as a tribute to the man that so many of our generation related to, laughed with and learned from.
