Molly Ringwald’s Jazz Favorites

Experimental South London pop, Molly Ringwald's favorite jazz tunes, dreamy synth-pop and more in our weekly look at music

In honor of the ’80s teen star’s birthday and recent interview, AnOther Magazine featured an unlikely rundown of Molly Ringwald’s favorite jazz tracks. As the interview implies, Ringwald hasn’t exactly followed the traditional post-Hollywood path; she moved to France and back, wrote a few books and even released her own jazz record. Lucky for us she also has impeccable taste in the genre, counting artists like Anita O’Day and Django Reinhardt among her favorites. Fans of Ringwald won’t find any deep cuts from “The Breakfast Club” soundtrack, but if you’re in the mood for some carefully selected jazz from well-known and obscure artists, this playlist is worth a listen.
