As mentioned in the second sentence of the above paragraph, the song was brilliantly used during the scene in which Ferris, Sloan, and Cameron visit the Chicago Art Institute. From the moment the trio enter the museum by sneaking in via holding hands in unison with a group of student to the end of the montage where Cameron thinks he sees his dad’s Ferrari in a photo, we hear this beautiful piece of music play. Hughes must have had a large boner for art, as the montage features a good minute and half of painting and sculptures. The scene is kind of pointless in the overall scope of the movie, but the classic tune more than makes up for it.
For whatever reason, there never was a Ferris Bueller’s Day Off soundtrack ever produced. The version of Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want used in the movie was never released on a Dream Academy studio album. Although the song was finally made available in 2000 as an inclusion on the band’s greatest hits album. I associate this song with innocence and it seemed to really work during what the hell" art montage scene in the film. It's just a classic tune, both the original Smiths version and the instrumental version from Dream Academy. I am still kicking myself for not having used it for my wedding video during the sequence featuring all of the guests, but I sure would recommend it to be used for other people's wedding videos. Well, unless they are people who think outside the box!
Ladies and gentlemen... #20 Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want by Dream Academy
