        Another great disc from Time Life, these guys are the ones you
measure other compilations against.  There's no radical choices here, all
very mainstream, top 40, instantly recognizable stuff.  If you were more
heavy into punk or new wave, forget it.  This is a radio playlist from an
eighties top 40 station from 1983, no doubt about that.  Fun disc for
background music at a get together (one of those "Oh wow, I haven't, like,
heard this song in ages" discs).  Most songs are on other compilations, the
only one I don't think I've seen elsewhere is David Bowie's "China Girl"
which I woulda thought was too big an artist to end up on a compilation, but
I guess not.
