Title - 'NOW That's What I Call New Wave 80s'
Artist - Various
I grew up in the 1980's listening to some great dance/rock songs, and the song list on this certainly didn't disappoint me! Billy Idol, The B-52's, Madonna, Haircut 100, Pat Benatar, Natalie Merchant, Cyndi Lauper, Missing Persons, Roxette, Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennox/Eurythmics, and Depeche Mode were artists/bands that I could easily turn to during my teenage years.
Sadly, of course, some of those artists aren't on this particular compilation, which feels a bit unfair to me personally (!), but at least what is represented here on NOW That's What I Call New Wave 80s is a really great compilation of both artists and tracks.

2. Billy Idol - 'Rebel Yell'
3. The Romantics - 'What I Like About You'
4. The B-52s - 'Private Idaho'
