It is one of the most beloved movies of all time, and 30 years later, it still has the hearts of everyone who has ever seen it. From reunions to parades, fans have been trying to do everything they can to seal the fate of Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the movie canon. They have never been able to get one of their greatest requests - a soundtrack to the 1986 movie. That is all about to change, however.

John Hughes wasn't a fan of having the soundtrack released at the time of the movie's release. He just didn't think that it would sell and it might even hurt his reputation. After all, the soundtrack features Wayne Newton and an obscure UK pop act like The Flowerpot Men whose rousing "Beat City" is one of the most recognizable movie songs of all times and follows Ferris, Cameron, and Sloane's arrival into Chicago.

Still, there have been many times when a soundtrack was announced and then someone would back away - this time it is for real.

Consequence of Sound confirms that Paramount Pictures is collaborating with La-La Land records, a label that exists almost solely to rescue film and TV music. The soundtrack to Ferris will be released later this year. There isn't an exact release date and exactly what songs will be on it yet, but the news should be enough to carry most of us forward until we get the official announcements. 

At the very least, it should have Yello's "Oh Yeah" ad The Beatles' "Twist and Shout" because those are iconic:
