[About the Dream Academy cover of "Please, Please, Please…" from the museum scene:]

The single version is not the instrumental featured in the film, but a
complete vocal rendition. I don't know if the instrumental version is
available anywhere. If it is, I should like to know. Is there a Ferris
Bueller soundtrack album?

Here's the current version of my Ferris-file – it ought to answer all your questions.

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF – The Soundtrack updated 25 October 1991

    compiled by Lazlo Nibble (Ernie Longmire) --

—————————————————————————— There was never a soundtrack album released from the film FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF, because director John Hughes didn't think that the diverse range of styles of songs in the movie would "work" on one album. The closest that they got to putting out a soundtrack was a promotional single with a couple of tracks from the movie; it was distributed at sneak previews and the like. (Dunno what's on it.)

This listing's designed to help people find all the songs used in the movie so they can compile their own soundtrack tape. If you have information not included here, please send it to me. Maybe someday some enterprising bootlegger will pull these all together and release one of their own (hint hint).
