Overview

Greatest Ever! Electric Eighties is a budget three-CD compilation that features 59 tracks from the 1980s. The bulk of the collection falls a little left of the dial, and highlights synth pop and new wave along with instrumental keyboard standards like Herbie Hancock's "Rockit" and the themes from Beverly Hills Cop ("Axel F") and Miami Vice ("Crockett's Theme"). Much of the collection pools from the big-hooked pop music of one-hit wonders, such as the Waitresses' "I Know What Boys Like," the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star," Animotion's "Obsession," Dead or Alive's "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)," and Taco's "Puttin' on the Ritz." As eclectic as music was in the '80s, this set does a nice job of pulling it all together into a solid anthology where the synthesizer takes priority.
