Could it have been in the movie "St. Elmo's Fire?"

Not St. Elmo's Fire...

i love this song and now this is driving ME crazy.

i know that a lot of John Hughes films had music in them that are not on the soundtracks, concidering the era of the song, i am guessing a John Hughes film.

i know that Ferris Bueller's Day Off featured a couple of Dream Academy songs, but not Life in a Northern Town.

speaking of John Hughes films, here is a link to The Breakfast Club script....this may distract you from Life in a Northern Town. ha ha ha


I wanna know the answer! this is driving me crazy!

According to this site ( http://theacf.com/dreamac/#misc ) :

"JAKARANDA - Never Let You Go - Sony, JAPAN 1998
  This 1998 dance track with female vocals again heavily samples
  the main refrain from "Life In a Northern Town". Most easily
  available in the US on the 1998 Parent Trap soundtrack."
