Oh Yeah from Yello on Vimeo.

Thirty years ago this month Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was released and through the films soundtrack I was introduced to this odd Swiss synth-pop house duo called Yello through a song called “Oh Yeah“.

Although the 45 single was released in a nondescript generic sleeve here in Canada it has remained in my collection all these years for two reasons – The vinyl was yellow and it included my very favourite remix of the track, the Indian Summer Remix.

The later could be found on the 12 inch single in the states and I believe a remix album. But it didn’t make it to compact disc until the 20th anniversary remastered re-release of Stella so I had been forced to make a copy of it to cassette to keep listening to it – A smart choice seeing that I must have listened to it a thousand or so times in 1986 alone.

You can listen to the Indian Summer Remix on Spotify by clicking here.
