Subject: Ferris Bueller's Day Off Music

Written By: lebeiw15 on 07/09/04 at 11:21 am

This movie had some great music--I know the name of only one song from it though.  Anyone know where I could find a list of the songs/music from the movie.. I don't believe there is a soundtrack.  Thank you in advance.

Hehe.. yes it is.  Whenever I hear it I think of Mr. Rooney getting on the school bus with his torn suit and beat-up face. ;D :D
