When Music Makes A Movie: Elegia - New Order - From Pretty In Pink





John Hughes seminal 1986 classic has a number of great tracks in it, but something about New Order's Elegia really takes the movie down a suprisingly dark path. Few pieces of music from the 1980's stand the test of time but Elegia rather strangely sounds as current now as it did back then, and utterly powerful piece of music. 

The piece of music plays at a defining part of the movie, when all the lives of the characters are thrown into free-fall. 





Elegia is one of a number of epic hits from the 1985 album Low Life, you can purchase the album by clicking the link below to Amazon, you can buy the whole album on a CD or download all or individual tracks.
