This disc has a VERY hard to find mix of "She Blinded Me With Science"
by Thomas Dolby. This mix is the original VINYL album mix that is not present
on the CD version of this album. That alone gives this disc a 5 rating.
Along with the other songs, there is not one artist with more than 2 hit songs
on this disc and makes it well worth the cost, since you'll never find these
songs on anything other than another compilation of greatest hits. The
version of "Video Killed The Radio Star" is the well known song that launched
MTV (not the original Bruce Wolley &The Camera Club, check out the Big Hits
Skinny Ties disc if that's the version you wish.) The order of songs on this
disc is PERFECT. If you were going to buy any disc in this series, this is
the ONLY disc to consider.
