AllMusic Review by

Sony's budget-priced, 16-track 1985: The Best Year of My Life collection does a decent job representing the clash between new wave and traditional pop that permeated the era. While the playlist is decidedly Eurocentric (Modern Talking, the Stranglers, Boney M., Far Corporation, Alison Moyet), there are enough international hits here like "Loverboy" (Billy Ocean), "Can’t Fight This Feeling" (REO Speedwagon), and "Holding Out for a Hero" (Bonnie Tyler) to please the North American contingent.
