Uncle Buck Soundtrack


This movie departed from John Hughes' previous scores, by having a mixture of 'more regular' tracks, rather than the eclectic mix of 80's britpop bands he favoured in his earlier movies, such as "Pretty In Pink" and "Some Kind Of Wonderful".

Tracks like "Mr Sandman", "Lipstick Powder and Paint", and "Tweedlee Dee" set a rather different tone than Simple Minds' "Dont You (Forget About Me)"

The following song tracks were featured in Uncle Buck:

About the Soundtrack, how can anyone forget the hip hop music in it. Two classics are used with instrumental loops, Tone Loc's "Wild Things" and Young MC's "Bust A Move" (which was used in a hilarious scene in Dude, Where's My Car). -Thanks to Arjun Medhi

The song played in the bar where Buck & Shanice having dessert is a sample from the song "Got More Rhymes" by Young MC.
