Hits of 1984

Sony Special Products' Hits Of series follows a pretty set script. The discs are short at only ten tracks and contain a mix of big hits, middling hits, and totally forgotten songs by pretty well-known artists. It is a unique strategy that brings some interesting songs to light and makes for good listening. The biggies on Hits of 1984 are the Psychedelic Furs' "Ghost in You," Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It for the Boy," and Nena's "99 Red Balloons." The rest of the disc is highlighted by Luther Vandross' epic "Superstar/Until You Come Back to Me," Slade's "Run Runaway," Rebbie Jackson's sole semi-hit, "Centipede," and some non-hits by Cyndi Lauper, REO Speedwagon, and Toto. One wishes the disc were longer to take more advantage of the curious song selections. As it is, the short running time makes the disc hard to recommend to anyone but the most devoted '80s fans.
