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 justify the budget price. Vol. 4, for example, contains such hits as Tears for Fears' "Shout," Men at Work's "Who Can It Be Now," Culture Club's "Time (Clock of the Heart)," Wang Chung's "Everybody Have Fun Tonight," After the Fire's "Der Kommissar," Re-Flex's "Politics of Dancing" and the Flying Lizards' "Money (That's What I Want)," making it an excellent choice for the budget-minded casual listener.
