The Dream Academy - Please Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want
One of the more memorable songs of the 80's which had very brief exposure on the film Ferris Beullers Day Off. Yes, this is a Smiths cover, but it's an amazing cover, and easily rivals the original. Since the above mentioned movie never had a soundtrack (and we would wonder why, as it's such a cult film!?) the 12" has become quite a scarce item to find. You should expect to pay upwards of $20 for it at record shows, and possibly more off Ebay. As with all the Dream Academy releases, the song it beautiful, glistening with blissful pop which SHOULD have endeared this band to a wider audience, but left them with only 1 notable single. If you like the dreamy soft pop of the 80's, and like this single, you should try more from this band. If anyone needs a resurgence today, I would say Dream Academy is in line. With all this said, grab this while you can, and grab the original when you see it about. It's worth the investment, as it's always been one of my favorite songs.
