John Hughes weekend: Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Ah, back when I was a student I once wrote an essay on the construction of Planes, Trains And Automobiles. I think that was why I flunked my second year human biology module.

John Candy. Steve Martin. A slim, but winning plot. And they had Balaam And The Angel on the soundtrack - I'll Show You Something Special is on YouTube, in a continuing-with-sound-only fashion.

There was also a good slice of Steve Earle, working with John Mandoukos as The Dukes. They did this:

Balaam And The Angel - The Chapter 22 Years
Steve Earle & The Dukes - The Hard Way
