Each volume in the Platinum Disc label's extensive Greatest Hits of the '80s series features ten chart-toppers that span the decade, with a heavy emphasis on songs that continue to be played regularly on adult contemporary radio stations. The selections are a bit too broad and the amount of material on each disc falls toward the skimpy side, so none of the discs is all that remarkable. The 12th volume of the series includes Scandal's "Love's Got a Line on You," Cock Robin's "When Your Heart Is Weak," Blue Öyster Cult's "Burnin' for You," Henry Lee Summer's "I Wish I Had a Girl," and the Producers' "What She Does to Me."
