Our third disc starts in high gear with the defining remix of ‘Lost In Music’ by Sister Sledge – re-visioned for the 1984 dancefloor five years after they produced the original version by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic. Talking of NOWs, the beach-towel-tastic NOW 15 compilation, originally issued in 1989 was also recently announced.

It's always strange that these compilations feature no Madonna or Michael Jackson etc but you just have to accept that these tracks must be too expensive to include. S. hits - whilst some were big hits on both sides of the Atlantic, we shine a spotlight on huge hits from America at the time, that have gone on to be as legendary in the UK as they were in the US.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

I absolutely love this CD, it is a great cross section of 80's music with no fillers at all, just great hits and lots of them. The idea is clearly to spotlight hits from the decade that enjoyed significant success Stateside, some of which did well in the UK as well, but others that didn’t. Drawing the collection to a close is the aptly titled ‘America’, which gave Neil Diamond his third Top 10 single in the US from the soundtrack of his film ‘The Jazz Singer’. I don't find that it detracts from enjoying the CD particularly if you were a teenager during the 80's as it really takes you back.My friends and I (all in our 30's so our musical experiences really started in the 1980's) sat down one day and listed all the songs we liked from the 80's. Completing the disc is Pop gold from The Bangles, Kim Wilde, Matthew Wilder, and finishing with the epic ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ from Cher. Celebrated hits from Tina Turner and Blondie precede legendary Pop from Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Tight Fit and Baltimora, before Stars On 45’s salute to ABBA and bringing the disc to a close with UB40’s enduring ‘Red Red Wine’.

The best in Hi-NRG and pop-dance is celebrated on disc 3, with Boys Town Gang, Divine, Hazell Dean, Dollar and Bucks Fizz. By the late 80s, club culture informed and popularised a huge number of new styles of dance music including House, Eurodance, Jack-Swing, Techno, and an evolution in Soul… the final disc highlights some of the best from the end of the decade.Disc Two pays tribute to the 80s dancefloor classics that fused genres to create breath-taking originality and new styles – often reflecting changes in new technology and capturing the fashion of the era.
