Song Trivia

There are two bands performing in the club (Cats) that Andie frequents. One is The Rave-Ups, performing "Positively Lost Me" and "Rave Up/Shut Up". The other band is Talk Back, which performs the song "Rudy".

The promgoers were dancing to "Don't You Forget About Me," from Hughes' earlier "Breakfast Club."

Update: Although user Painted Fan said that the song promgoers were dancing to was ONE's If You Leave.

Can anyone confirm?
Thanks to Christine Gieseke
OMD (Orchestral Manuevers in the Dark) originally wrote "Goddess of Love" to play at the end. However, by the time the film was completed the song seemed redundant. "If You Leave" was recorded and used instead.
Thanks to Sandra Bell
New Order were asked to record a track for the movie and came up with SHELLSHOCK. However, when they presented it to the filmmakers, they said they did not want to use it so instead he used the previously recorded THIEVES LIKE US and ELEGIA originally from the album LOW LIFE.

Then somewhere along the line the movie makers decided to throw in SHELLSHOCK! and if my memory serves me correctly only SHELLSHOCK appeared on the album. So, eventually, New Order ended up with three writing credits on one movie! Nice work if you can get it.

Score Trivia

Thanks to Roman Tiu
In the scene when Blane asked Andie to go to the Prom with him (that night when they arrived at Andie's place) the background piano tune was the same piano tune played in the Background in "Mannequin" when Jonathan was soaked wet pushing his motorcycle.

-copperpot80 adds:

I'm pretty sure is not the same music. In Mannequin, when Jonathan Switcher (Andrew McCarthy) was on his motorcycle in the rain, the piano love theme we can hear is by Sylvester Levay (as all the music score of the film). This instrumental music -in the rain- wasn't edited in the soundtrack.
