Far gone but not forgotten

Posted by on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 12:12 PM

Because this blog wasn’t yet born when John Hughes died last August, there was really no way to share with you Courtney Love’s moving tribute to the filmmaker who taught a generation how to preen and pout. And, really, who else is better at preening, pouting and, of course, warbling off key than the once-and-future Hole frontwidow? Here, Love works her magic on “Don’t You Forget About Me,” the Simple Minds hit featured in Hughes' iconic coming-of-age film, The Breakfast Club. Sad for the filmmaker that he wasn’t around to hear this, but sadder still for Simple Minds' Jim Kerr, who is. Best viewer comment: “This is amazing!!!! She's so free!”
