Priority's Rock of the '80s series may only contain nine songs on each disc, but every volume is filled with first-rate new wave and mainstream pop songs that are well worth the budget price. Vol. 10, for example, contains such hits as Johnny Hates Jazz's "Shattered Dreams," Level 42's "Something About You," Julian Lennon's "Valotte," Swing Out Sister's "Breakout," Elvis Costello's "Veronica" and Nik Kershaw's "Wouldn't It Be Good" making it an excellent choice for the budget-minded casual listener.
