AllMusic Review by

Madacy's Best of the 80s collection features the Countdown Singers performing many of the most well known songs from the 1980s. Much like all the other myriad Madacy collections, Best of the 80s doesn't feature the original recordings of the featured songs, but rather cover versions. The Countdown Singers cover these popular songs impressively; however, never do these songs compare to the original versions, sounding instead somewhat cheap and kitschy. Featured performances include "Material Girl," "Time After Time," "Sexual Healing," "Billie Jean," "Little Red Corvette," and "I Just Called to Say I Love You," in addition to several others.
