The titling of this compilation and the selection of the tracks on it probably took an equal amount of thought. New Wave Hits contains ten new wave hits, all of which have appeared on dozens of other new wave compilations (almost all of which have more thoughtful titles). Finally, for at least the 40th time on CD, you can have Corey Hart's "Sunglasses at Night," the Motels' "Only the Lonely," Missing Persons' "Words," Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science," Blondie's "Call Me," the Vapors' "Turning Japanese," and four others. Recommended only if you must have at least a handful of these songs and can't find them anywhere else.
