With a title like Biggest Hits of the 80's, you might figure Sony Special Products release from 2003 might be a pretty classic compilation. It isn't. At only ten tracks it is bound to leave a lot to be desired anyway but the selections don't live up to the lofty title. Sure, most of the songs are bona fide smashes like Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing," Philip Bailey's "Easy Lover" and Kenny Loggins' "Footloose" but some like Luther Vandross' "Stop to Love," Loverboy's "This Could Be the Night" weren't that big. They had bigger hits that could have been chosen for the disc. This error in selection and the brevity of the disc make it a less than essential and not very interesting purchase.
