        This disc has a few songs on that are better described as novelty
songs than pop songs (the Fun Boy Three take off of Our Lips Are Sealed, I
Wanna Be A Cowboy for instance).  It was neat to hear a song by the Divinyls
since they are better known for the song "When I Think About You I Touch
Myself", and "The Captain Of Her Heart" is a rare soft pop find.  But, like
the previous disc in this series, the arraignment is poor as we find
ourselves jerked into different genres quickly, not really a party disc at
