Thanks to AlexiThe band, "The Rave-Ups," is written on Samantha's notebook that she takes with her to school. Her sister, the girl who played Caroline's friend Patty, had a child with a member of that band. And, in Pretty in Pink, when Molly Ringwald is in the nightclub, Cats, with her friend Jena, (played by Alexa Kenin), and Simon, (played by Dweezil Zappa), the band that is playing is The Rave-Ups. Molly Ringwald was apparently a big fan of theirs.
Primary Composer(s): Ira Newborn

Thanks to ChrisIn the scene in the school shop classroom (the scene that ends the iconic line "Can I borrow your underpants for 10 minutes?"), the music playing in the background is an instrumental by Stevie Ray Vaughan called Lenny (named for his wife at the time, Lenora). The song can be found on his first album, Texas Flood
