1983 is Pure Fun
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 08/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rock On's 1983 collection combines superstars with classic 80's one hit wonders. David Bowie opens up the album with his number one smash "Let's Dance" which has a funky bass line and some wicked guitar licks courtesy of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. Keyboard techno-wiz Thomas Dolby serves up the funny "She Blinded Me With Science" and Naked Eyes contributes the melodic "Always Something There To Remind Me". The Fixx had their lone top ten hit with "One Thing Leads To Another" and Pat Benatar shows off more of a pop side with "Love Is A Battlefield". Boy George & Culture Club hit number with the faux Dixieland sound of "Karma Chameleon". Quirky Bay area rockers The Tubes had their only top ten hit with the melodic "She's A Beauty". Air Supply join forces with Meatloaf cohort Jim Steinman on the theatrical "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" and one of the ultimate 80's one hit wonders Kajagoogoo show up with "Too Shy". Sheena Easton's "Telefone" is passable and The Motels close out the album with the dark & dreamy "Suddenly Last Summer"."
