AllMusic Review by

This European collection of '80s gems features a nice cross section of summery international hits like Katrina & the Waves' "Walking on Sunshine," Culture Club's "Karma Chameleon," and "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis & the News, along with Eurocentric smashes from the likes of Ultravox ("Dancing with Tears in My Eyes"), Roxy Music ("Avalon"), and Heaven 17 ("Temptation"). That said, it also includes Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry Be Happy," which is conveniently placed at the end, allowing for easy bypass.
