    I am looking for that song Ferris sang on the parade float. Not "Twist and Shout." The song before that one...

    I believe he also sang it during his morning shower with the lyrics "I recall Central Park in Fall, You tore your dress, what a mess..." etc.

    It's a pretty famous song I think, but what is the exact title and who sings it?

    "Anyone? ... Anyone? ...."

    The song is "Danke Shoen" by Wayne Newton.

    Cool. Thanks, guys.

    For some reason I seem to remember it being a woman's voice singing it, but I guess it was Wayne.

    Wayne Newton was about 12 when he recorded it and had a very feminine voice.

    um, this is a bit off topic, but one of my favourite sequences of that movie is the museum. does anybody know if there exists the instrumental version of 'please please please' by the Dream Academy around?

    I didn't realize it was Dream Academy. I always thought it was The Smiths doing an instrumental version.

    yeah, it's a Smiths song, but i think this version is a Dream Academy cover.
