"A great collection of early 1980's music."

"There are great songs on this CD that hit the charts from 1980-1984. Even though the songs are all under five minutes, while we are also only giving the single versions of many of the songs, this CD is still fantastic. It contains hits like "Electric Avenue" from Eddie Grant, "Ride Like The Wind" from Christopher Cross, and Ray Parker Jr.'s "Ghostbusters". It also contains the irrestible "Gloria" from Laura Branigan. Interestingly enough, there are also two Prince written songs on this CD. For one, Arif Mardin's production of Chaka Khan singing "I Feel For You". It is the single version, but great to have, since this is not on many 80's collections. The second Prince song is also the single version, but yet great. It is Sheila E. banging her drums on "The Glamorous Life." Funny, because on her album "The Glamorous Life", Sheila is giving the full credit for written the song. On this CD, Prince is giving the full credit of wriiten the song under his earliest pen name, Jamie Starr. Last, but not least, the best hit on the album is Culture Club's "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?" Not only can you not get this song out of your mind, but Culture Club will always remain the prime example of the 1980's. The is also the original, album version. Buy this know, since it is well worth it. Just look at the price."
As good as collections get.

"So many of these things are hit and miss. But I can actually say every one of these songs belong here. Plus it's 20 tracks. One of the best 80's discs I've ever seen. No need to comment more, the songs speak for themselves. They're totally awesome!"
