Monster 84 Hits Review

by Andy Kellman

The budget-line Monster 80s Hits series, put together by Platinum Disc, is distributed by Sony -- each volume in the series is hardly representative of the corresponding year, since all of the selections are plucked from Sony-distributed labels. To make matters worse, a lot of these songs barely cracked the Top 40 of the mainstream pop singles chart, meaning that the title of the series is a bit of a stretch. Monster 84 Hits includes Rebbie Jackson's "Centipede," Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost in You," Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It for the Boy," Toto's "Stranger in Town," and Cyndi Lauper's "All Through the Night"; as with the other volumes in the series, it's far too random to be of much use for anyone other than wedding DJs.
