Hello, well the year is drawing to a close, many of you will party and today's pick should get you right in the mood, as eighties music is still extremely popular party music. Any amateur dj can compile an hour of ecstasy from these 3 cds, selections could differ wildly depending the dj, if you feel like it, why not post one in comments.

Here today for you all to dance the night away....

Electric 80's aims to capitalize on the continuing popularity of all things 80s as seen in the success of the Hit Me Baby One More Time TV show, the continuing influence of 80s music on current bands and the ever present fashion nods to the era. This is a definitive collection 45 of the very best electronic, synth and new wave tracks from the early years of the decade. Of all the Eighties compilations out there, this was almost certainly put together by someone who experienced the decade first hand. There are some inspired choices here and quite a few rare and unusual remixes and 12" versions - some superb ('Fade to Grey' for example) and some that are rather dated and frankly superfluous.

It's nice to see some of the more quirky tracks such as Foxx's 'Underpass' and Fad Gadget, as well as the Mobiles fabulous 'In Love With a German Film Star Star'. One probably could have omitted Marilyn and a few others, but all in all a very good collection and a fair reflection of a creative era.
