Music Monday: Name that ’80s Film. (Featuring Yello)

Hello, hello! Time for another (late night) Music Monday here at Hidden Staircase. It snowed at my house off and on starting yesterday morning for a little over 24 hours. It’s a winter wonderland outside right now. I *really* want to share Christmas music with you, but my husband tells me that 12 November is TOO EARLY for Christmas music. I say it’s never too early, but since it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, I’ll try to hold back. At least in this post.

Instead, I’ll do another edition of “Name this 80’s Film.” And THIS is a fun one.

Oh Yeah by Yello

So…I’m not super impressed with the song itself. BUT when featured in a film? Oh Yeah. (See what I did there?) It works.

You’ve got two chances on this one. Because I remember not one but TWO 80’s films that featured this song. Any guesses?

Movie #1 (which I highly recommend. It is so choice.)

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

Of course “Oh Yeah” is playing in the background during the Ferrari scene. (If you’ve never watched Ferris before, make that a priority this week, would you?)

And for Movie #2, we can’t forget Michael J. Fox in…

The Secret of My Success (1987)

I haven’t seen this movie in decades, but all these years later, I remembered this song was in it.

BONUS: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off End Credits

I bet you thought I’d forget that “Oh Yeah” isn’t featured just once, but TWICE in Ferris Bueller. Classic End Credits. I like this even better than the Ferrari scene. “I bet you never smelled a real school bus before.”

Happy Monday All!

Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post’s url over at this week’s post on Always Me.

Sit down and share a cuppa with me. Let's discuss.
