Chart Toppers: Dance Hits of the 80s

Priority's Chart Toppers series is an excellent budget-line collection, offering a strong selection of 15 original hits, grouped by a specific theme and decade, on each disc. Chart Toppers: Dance Hits of the 80's combines new wave, disco, pop-rock and urban soul hits -- an eclectic bunch, to say the least, but the variety helps capture the feeling of the decade. A few of the songs haven't dated well, but for the most part, the selection of songs is terrific, albeit a little predictable. Among the highlights on the disc are the Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian," A-Ha's "Take On Me," Kool & the Gang's "Celebration," Lipps, Inc.'s "Funky Town," Sheena Easton's "Strut," Robbie Neville's "C'est La Vie," Terence Trent D'arby's "Wishing Well," Wang Chung's "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," Laura Branigan's "Gloria," Debbie Gibson's "Shake Your Love" and Eddie Murphy's "Party All the Time."
