Ah, the Eighties. I have a particular liking for the music of this decade, though I'm never sure exactly why. I'm not as familiar with the music of the first few years as I am with the later years, but here we go anyway...

Morning Train, I remembered from my childhood - high nostalgia value there. Moscow seems an odd sort of song, considering the cold war was still on back then! Odd, but fun. Some of the songs (Such as Feels Like I'm In Love) sound like left-overs from the Seventies.

For the rest of the CD there are some classics and some songs I've never heard of. The Stroke? Hmm. Shaddup You Face is another song from my childhood. Is-a quite-a fun. It's a shame it sounds like some of the songs really needed to be remastered.
