Comment:

You bet I got every single huge song from the 80's on here. Looks mainly like the soundtrack to the Wedding Singer, with some other nice ones thrown in. I love "I Melt With You" and "Every Breath You Take" is great--off one of the best albums of the 80's, Synchronicity. Even though they were huge, they're some of the best to come out of the generation.

Yeah with all 8 or so '80s mixes you made, I can hardly think of one omission, an achievement to be proud of in light of virtually every other '80s mix (on AOTM and in stores) which collect about 15 hits and claim to be definitive comps. Yours is the finest I've ever seen, this edition possibly being the one I prefer most, with Simple Minds AND Modern English, two of the coolest and most perennial '80s songs ever recorded, not to mention great cuts like "Centerfold", Soft Cell, U2, The Buggles, "I Ran", and Dead or Alive
