'80s Hits Back, Vol. 3 ()


The third entry in this series is built on the same sturdy marketing ploy as its preceding two volumes; that is, a scant (14 tracks and no liner notes or discographical information) collection of hits and near misses from the era where pop music plugged into cable television and started seriously chasing the big buck. While there are no big hair bands aboard on this one, many of the one shots (Breakfast Club's "Right On Track," Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party," the Motels' "Only the Lonely," Musical Youth's "Pass the Dutchie," Big Country's "In a Big Country" and Robbie Nevil's "C'est La Vie") are nonetheless evocative pop signposts of the era. Big-ticket memory joggers also include Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust," Pat Benatar's "We Belong," Paul Young's "Everytime You Go Away," Billy Idol's pseudo-snarling "To Be a Lover" and the Georgia Satellites' one big moment in the sun, "Keep Your Hands to Yourself." Tracks from INXS, the Fixx ("Saved By Zero") and Golden Earring complete the package. ~ Cub Koda, Rovi Hide synopsis
