I often pick up 80s cds and have a look. So many of the compilations I have are pretty similar, but then I'll see one and remember a particular song and buy it just for the one track!!I spotted Now Thats What I Call The 80s cds on Amazon today and I recalled all of the vinyl records we had at home during the 80s, the Now That's What I Call range seemed to release a couple of lps every year - I wonder where all of ours went?
The volume two cd that I've featured here has the song Toy Soldiers by Martika which doesn't appear on any of my other compilations. I loved her first album - the self titled Martika and the two songs that I can remember from it - 'Toy Soldiers' and 'I Feel The Earth Move.' At the time I prefered the song 'I Feel The Earth Move' to 'Toy Soldiers,' but now I'm not sure which one I prefer - what about you?
Other tracks on the cd are also great with Lionel Ritchie Dancing on the Ceiling taking me back to High School and one particular school disco....enough said!
Whitney Houston, The Police, Robert Palmer - the album is fantastic so if you're feeling in the mood for some 80s music this weekend check out the track listings.....and if you're like me listen to them on youtube!!
