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.

For Star Wars Fans / Acoustic David Bowie Tribute

I know this isn’t about music. But aren’t you surprised that they just didn’t wait a month and release the film on Star Wars Day ? It would have been a great opportunity but I guess Disney had their reasons.

Anyhow, i’m going to wait for the blu-ray myself, which will be released in a package with DVD and HD Download on April 5th, 2016. I’ve had it on pre-order since January so i’m patient. ­čÖé

Yes, I was tempted to buy it from iTunes yesterday. But i’ve decided to wait. I prefer the resolution of blu-ray over downloads and have not really started to go full force into collecting the latter.

Basically I download some of the films I get in the blu-ray packages but I might start downloading films once I set up a larger hard drive on my router. That would probably be more convenient because i’m running out of shelf space and I don’t think i’ll bother buying more shelved, unless perhaps if I decide to move.
