Song of the Day: 'Rave Up/Shut Up' by the Rave-Ups

A little-remembered song by the Rave-Ups, which managed to be in a film with the greatest new wave soundtrack ever yet wasn't included on it.

According People magazine's 30 Things You Didn't Know About "Pretty in Pink":
The Rave-Ups appear in the film as themselves, performing the songs “Positively Lost Me” and “Rave-Up/Shut-Up.” Both songs are curiously missing from the official soundtrack as well, but they remained part of Molly Ringwald’s life in one key way: Her old sister, Beth, dated the band’s frontman, Jimmer Podrasky, and the couple had a son together, Chance, for whom the band’s 1990 album was named.
Watch their other missed opportunity HERE.
