Maisie Peters – “John Hughes Movie”

First love, first kiss, and first heartbreak. Listening to budding pop star Maisie Peters’ precocious single John Hughes Movie snaps me back to the heady days of teenage summer. Movies like The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off blew the lids off our lives and dominated popular teen culture in the 80s. In this song Maisie Peters cleverly turns the Hughes formula on its head, so the girl does not always get the guy. With a new album on the horizon, Peters is pushing for a bigger slice of the pop cake. If she keeps putting out choruses like this one, just like in a real John Hughes movie, her dreams may come true.
