Just popped in the soundtrack to Pretty In Pink and it started off with OMD's "If You Leave". This is, of course, is the final song in the movie. There's a lot of build up getting to that point in the story so it's a little strange to hear this song at the beginning of the soundtrack instead of the end. The song that starts off the movie, Psycheldelic Furs' "Pretty In Pink", is song 5 on the soundtrack. At the end of side 1 in its original format. That's also a bit weird after watching the movie. I guess I'm a little surprised that all soundtracks aren't a mini-recreation of their respective movie. I assume that the songs that have been licensed will appear in the same order as they do in the movie so you kind of re-experience it in condensed form via its music. I can't think of any good reasons offhand to rearrange the order of the songs. In this example, John Hughes even wrote in the liner notes saying how important to the film the music is. I do wonder if he chose this soundtrack order himself. In a sense, he's already made a playlist by the order of appearance in the film, which is a carefully constructed piece of art. And someone has changed that order. It's a good time to create a playlists though!
