Very good

"It had been many years since I heard "Slippin Away" until I got this CD. It has the long versions of Total Eclipse of the Heart (so rare) and Run Runaway. The second disc is my favorite by far, but I like to just have the first one running while I putter around the house. puts me back in time. I have 2 other 80's Cd's with the German version of 99 Luftballoons on them & was very glad to get the English version on here."

"Personally, I bought the collection to get a 'slight' extended version of "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs. It was listed with a playing time of 4:21 on That triggered my purchase.

Boy was I wrong.

Although it says on the disc back cover that "Love My Way" is 4:21 in length, it is actualy 3:33. I'm not too happy about that. Don't get me wrong folks, there are other good songs on the 2-disc collection, but, in this case, I want what I want. So much for whining!

Other good songs include:

1. 'Til Tuesday - Voices Carry (4:21)
2. Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart (6:58)
3. Quiet Riot - Cum on feel the noize (4:50)
4. Cheap Trick - Talking in your sleep (3:56)
5. R.E.O. Speedwagon - Keep on Loving You (3:20)
6. Toto - Rosanna (5:32)
7. 99 Red Ballons - Nena (English Version! - 3:51)
8. Bangles - Walk like an Egyptian (3:22)
9. Tommy Tutone - 867-5309/Jenny (3:45)

The price is right, so get yourself a copy and check it out!

My rating: 3 stars!

"I think I can safely say this must be the 400th 80's collection out there. Hey, choices are good right. Like any collection of this sort, the more songs you like on it, the better it is. I would call a dozen of these awesome, the other dozen not so. My favorites are from 'Til Tuesday, Blue Oyster Cult, The Romantics, Adam Ant, and The Outfield. Many others are good too, but then there's the ones we've heard way too many times also. I'd say give it a shot if it has that song you've been looking for, or if it's a few bucks used."
