Overview

Sony Music's three-disc Essential: The 80s collection hits mostly high notes in its quest to chronicle pop music's most polarizing decade. Being a U.K. release, the compilation draws heavily on English radio hits like "Blue Hat for a Blue Day" (Nick Heyward), "Happy Birthday" (Altered Images), and "Boxerbeat" (Jo Boxers), but there are enough international hits from the likes of Toto ("Africa"), the Bangles ("Eternal Flame"), and Ray Parker, Jr. ("Ghostbusters") to fuel 100 nostalgic late-night dance parties worldwide.
