        Not a bad disc, lots of stuff on here that I haven't heard or
remembered in ages.  First the bad news, tracks one and two, skip them. Do
that and you have a good compilation.  The hard to find, Aldo Nova's
"Fantasy" is one of those songs I forgot all about, a great track. "Your Love
is Driving Me Crazy" by Sammy Hagar, I forgot Sammy even had a real hit
before "I Can't Drive 55".  Hard to find? Frida's "I Know There's Something
Going On," depends on wether or not you want the last hit from the ABBA clan,
I hated ABBA myself, (detest, loath, etc) but this one song is fine by me
(plus it was produced by Phil Collins). I thought it strange that Time Life
neglected to mention that "Turning Japanese" is a Brisith euphemism for
masturbation, though they did summarize the song as a fascination of
prisioner with a picture of a woman (guess that's a good enough clue for us
