Coming to DVD in August is a series of movies in special "I Love the '80s" editions, each with a four-song CD (although it appears that each has the SAME four-song CD). Included in the series: "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Footloose," "Top Gun" and "Pretty in Pink." When the DVDs landed on my desk today, I of course had to pause and open "Pretty in Pink" for one of The Greatest Scenes in Cinema History.
I am, of course, talking about Duckie (Jon Cryer) lip-synching to Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness." And, if I am going to relive that moment, I have to share, so here's the clip via YouTube:
Here's Mr. Otis Redding himself, with "Try." (My personal favorite Otis: "Cigarettes and Coffee.")
