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 price. Vol. 13, for example, contains such hits as Men At Work's "It's a Mistake," the Thompson Twins' "Doctor! Doctor!," the Fixx's "The Sign of Fire," the Tubes' "Talk to Ya Later," the Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost in You" and the Red Rockers' "China," tmaking it an excellent choice for the budget-minded casual listener.
