I scored an Awesome 80's CD today at Target for only $9.99. It's called 80's New Wave. I have most of the normal 80's fare already, but this double CD set was obviously compiled by a true 80's fan.

 -

Song list:

DISC ONE:
Always Something There to Remind Me~Naked Eyes The Reflex~Duran Duran
Sunglasses at Night~Corey Hart
Rapture~Blondie
She blinded me with Science~Thomas Dolby
It's A Miracle~Culture Club
Mexican Radio~Wall of Voodoo
Tenderness~General Public
Sixty-Eight Guns~The Alarm
Take the L~The Motels
Communication~Spandau Ballet
Kids in America~Kim Wilde
Promised you a Miracle~Simple Minds
Let Me Go~Heaven 17
Hanging on a Heart Attack~Device

DISC TWO:
Turning Japanese~The Vapors
Talk Talk~Talk Talk
Words~Missing Persons
Making Plans for Nigel~XTC
White Wedding~Billy Idol
Drive, She Said~Stain Ridgway
Election Day~Arcadia
Get It On~The Power Station
One Small Day~Ultravox
Love Stinks~J. Geils Band
Bette Davis Eyes~Kim Carnes
Too Shy~Kajagoogoo
Tarzan Boy~Baltimora
The Politics of Dancing~Re-Flex
Living in a Box~Living in a Box

I enjoy every song on these CDs. Some of the more obsure songs are classics that I had kind of forgotten about over time. Go get it!

Motley is totally right about most 80's compilation CDs having the same songs just in a different order. I agree that an 80's music junkie would have most of these songs, but there are several songs on this CD that I seldom see on most basic 80's compilation CDs.

For instance, most of the songs Isis named, plus Mexican Radio, The Politics of Dancing, & Tarzan Boy.

Plus the price of $9.99 made it worth it for me, since I only had about 1/3 of the songs already.

Yes. It was also used in that same year's "Masters Of The Universe".

If I didn't own the majority of the songs already, I would buy it. As it stands now, I'll just try and find the few tracks I don't have on Shareaza.

Sincerely,

John Kilduff

Those are a cool list of songs. I wish that there was a site that you could go to and vote for songs that you wish would all be released on the same album. It seems like so many of the 80s compilation Cd's have a lot of the same songs on them. There were some of those songs I hadn't heard of either, now it might be a different story if I actually heard the song I would probablly recognize it. You would think they have to have been popular to make a greatest hits CD.

I t looks like a good compilation, only problem is there is only one song, Device's hanging on a heart attack that I don't have. I guess, I have so much that it's hard for me to hear something I don't have.

OMG, I totally want it sooo bad! [Big Grin] Looks like a cool album...

On a sidenote, the Heaven 17 band sounds familiar...I heard it in a movie once, but I can't seem to remember, now matter how hard I try...grrrr. Darn brain! (bonks it)

Taking their name from a fictional pop group mentioned in Anthony Burgess's novel "A Clockwork Orange" where 'The Heaven Seventeen' are at number 4 in the charts with 'Inside'. Heaven 17 formed when Ian Craig Marsh and Martyn Ware split from their earlier group The Human League.

As far as the song being in a movie, they did have a song called 'Temptation' in the movie "Trainspotting. not sure about 'Let Me Go' though.

Sixty-Eight Guns~The Alarm has great guitar riffs. Not sure how to categorize this song, but it grows on ya.

Fred, the satellite radio station on XM radio (44) is fantastic at digging up the lesser know and largely forgotten treasures from the 80s
