    Well this is pretty awesome and I’m excited to get the original score from Ira Newborn, but there are more than 9 songs in the movie.

    • Dan says:

      Yeah, what about the extended English Beat instrumental when Ferris is racing home, jumping fences, to get in bed in time before his parents get home?!

      • Justin Boggan says:

        Rights issues prevented more songs. As stated in the announcement details (not posted here):

        “Due to licensing restrictions, a few of the film’s songs could not be included on this CD, but they are available elsewhere.”

        Well, it would have been very ncie to have the English Beat track, but the real unfortunate lose was “March of the Swivelheads”, famously used as the music where Ferris is running home at the end of the day.

        • jmb says:

          That IS the English Beat song, fool.

            Pardon my French, but you’re an asshole.
