When 80s icons collide – Molly Ringwald and Jessies Girl

image

Two 80’s icons collided in my Twitter feed today. John Hughes’s ubermuse Molly Ringwald and Rick Springfield’s hit song “Jessie’s Girl ” are probably in my top ten list of favorite 80’s pop culture icons. I was pretty psyched to read Molly’s tweet about a fictional sequel song to Jessie’s Girl. 
I thought about Pretty in Pink and what that sequel would be like. Would Andie and Blaine have stayed together? Would Duckie have come out?
That’s the beauty of a near perfect film. When the credits roll, you get to write the sequel in your head. 
As for Jessie’s Girl, she never even had a name. She was a fantasy and that only works out in a John Hughes film starring Molly Ringwald.
