The Lotus Lab Show 65- The Breakfast Club Redux

The Breakfast Club, a John Hughes’ cult classic (1985) is one of my favorite 80s movies. It defines the high school experience where a jock, recluse, nerd, sweetheart and rebel are thrown into detention together one Saturday morning and come out as friends.  I’ll give John Hughes’ a pass for not including any ethnically diverse cast members in this film or most of his films for that matter.  All in all, it’s still a good flick.
So what if that movie was made today? What would be the soundtrack?  This podcast is dedicated to that film and the songs I would have put on the soundtrack.  Hopefully you enjoy listening as much as I did making it and this encourages you to see the movie again if not the first time.
