RIP John Hughes

Writer/director John Hughes passed away today at the age of 59 after suffering from a heart attack. The wildly successful Hughes was responsible for an array of 1980s comedies (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Pretty In Pink, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club) and a couple of excellent 1990s family films (Beethoven, Home Alone). His films also propelled a few memorable songs into the limelight.
