This one is from the late, great Pete Shelley, better known for his work in the Buzzcocks; however, he made this one specifically for John Hughes' movie Some Kind of Wonderful. Pete passed away in December last year at the young age of 63, but his work and his words will always be remembered.
This song was a definite deviation from his more punk roots, as he experimented with more new wave sounds. It was the lead track from the album and helped set the tone for the entire soundtrack (all of which were great picks), which was comprised of more "indie" bands for the time, leaving this as a very unique soundtrack in the sea of 80s regurgitation.
