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. 14, for example, contains such hits as Asia's "Heat of the Moment," Scandal's "The Warrior," Katrina & the Waves' "Walking on Sunshine," the Outfield's "Your Love," Marshall Crenshaw's "Someday, Someway," the Hooters' "And We Danced" and the Motels' "Suddenly Last Summer," making it an excellent choice for the budget-minded casual listener.
