TuneDr's Breakfast Club

Great Scott!! Did you ever dream of skipping school and having a fun actioned packed day dodging your headmaster instead? Did you long to sing to your fancy piece standing on the tables in the school canteen? If so, welcome to TuneDr's Breakfast Club! Put your watermelons down and hop into our musical DeLorean, we'll make you want to dance like Emilio Estevez in detention! Nobody put this playlist in the corner........

1) Simple Minds - 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' (1985) - The Breakfast Club

The fashion, hair and dancing may be out of date but this song is timeless. An absolute classic!

2) Wayne Newton - 'Danke Schoen' (1963) - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Guys wanted to be Ferris and the girls with Ferris. Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it! Pretty damn good advice advice that I wont ever forget!

3) The Psychedelic Furs - 'Pretty In Pink' (1981) - Pretty In Pink

Ah Molly Ringwald, proof that it's ok to be ginger! Another John Hughes classic and a track that I loved as a tomboy, a punk sound with girlie content!

4) Oingo Boingo - 'Weird Science' (1985) - Weird Science
Imagine the possibilities of designing your ideal date: tall, dark brown wavey hair, medium build, thick black rimmed glasses and a penchant for comics.....uh that sounds like a certain London Scouser! Oh well, geeks rule!

5) Furniture - 'Brilliant Mind' (1986) - Some Kind Of Wonderful
A girl drummer! Nuff said, one of my favourite films and one that inspired me to play the sticks...albeit very briefly!

6) G Tom Mac - 'Cry Little Sister' (1987) - The Lost Boys

This epic never fails to bring a shiver down my spine. Visions of gliding through the air over Santa Barbara's funfair and into the arms of Keifer Sutherland. I'd eat maggots for him anyday!

7) Ben E. King - 'Stand By Me' (1960) - Stand By Me

Feel the summer heat drawing in, a beautiful and quiet song and a 'coming of age' classic on life and friendship which stands true to this very day. Oh River...why?

8) The Righteous Brothers - 'You've Lost That Loving Feeling' (1964) - Top Gun

Want to make a bold love statement to that certain someone you've had your eye on? Do it in Top Gun style, singing this at the top of your lungs and you'll have them feeling like a control tower thats just been buzzed! Just make sure it's not your flight instructor!

9) Huey Lewis & The News - 'The Power Of Love' (1985) - Back To The Future

Hey Mcfly! Probably one of my favourite ever tracks, bringing with it fabulous memories of a movie classic. If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per're going to see some serious shit!

10) Bill Medley & Jennifer Warner - '(I've Had) The Time Of My Life' (1987) - Dirty Dancing

A song that'll have you on that dancefloor quicker than you can say Johnny's Mambo!

11) Limahl - 'Neverending Story' (1984) - Neverending Story

You're soaring through the air on your Luck Dragon, the wind through your striped mullet, 'The Nothing' can't get you now!

12) Billy Idol - 'Hot In The City' (1982) - Big

Stick this track on and clamber through the sunroof of your Fiesta for full effect!

13) Ray Parker Jr. - 'Ghostbusters' (1984) - Ghostbusters you smell something? All gatekeepers and keymasters must play this really loud to avoid full platonic reversal!

14) Kenny Loggins - 'Footloose' (1984) - Footloose

Was this some of the best dancing you've ever seen?! Uh yeah of course it was! The ideal song to assist in jumping off walls and running around energetically!

15) Harry Belafonte - 'Banana Boat Song (Day-O)' (1956) - Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice....Beetlejuice...Beetle...shhh! Don't say it! A perfectly weird and wonderful song to go hand in hand with a mental Tim Burton classic.

Full platonic reversal! Love it. Oh yeah, a fantastic slice of nostaglic goodness. I remember all of these fondly, some more so than others and possibly made me into the man I am today. Especially Pretty in Pink. Can u believe I had a double bill of Aliens and Ferris Bueller, mind blown as a 12 year old. I just wish I had a sun roof.
