Sixteen Candles (1984)

Samantha's life is going downhill fast. The sixteen-year-old has a crush on the most popular boy in school, and the geekiest boy in school has a crush on her. Her sister's getting married, and with all the excitement the rest of her family forgets her birthday! Add all this to a pair of horrendously embarrassing grandparents, a foreign exchange student named Long Duk Dong, and we have the makings of a hilarious journey into young womanhood.

The movie Sixteen Candles, released in 1984, features 31 songs from artists like Billy Idol, Spandau Ballet, The Vapors and David Bowie. What is your favorite song from Sixteen Candles?
