This disc isn't technically all eighties (60%), but I bought it anyways.
It's ok, the Cheech and Chong "song" is a bit annoying after a while (The
McKenzi Brother's 12 days of Christmas is a better fit in place of it). The
Beach Boys song is a classic, I remember it very well, and it's timeless, as
is the Kinks' "Father Christmas". Overall though, nothing else really stands
out, the Queen tune is ok, but I was never impressed with it, and it's on
just about every other 80's Christmas compilation I've bought.
