SMOOCHING CLASSICS From Hot School Nights - Various

With the compilations of 80s pop classics coming fast and furious in 2004, this one in particular takes the slightly more romantic route to conjure up school day lip-locking moments, be it behind the sports field, at the drive-in, at parties, in the backyard, at a pool party, or the more risky parents house. The 36 track double disc does regurgitate many of the other collections' favourites like
Erasure, OMD, Tears For Fears, A-Ha, Wang Chung, Belouis Some, Boy George (as well as Culture Club) and Feargal Sharkey. But you can't do without a Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Madness, Bryan Ferry, Yazoo, Simple Minds or Cyndi Lauper track to capture the era and transport you back. Even Sandra, Maxi Priest, Cutting Crew, Terence Trent D'Arby, Simply Red and the evergreen David Bowie make a turn. Soft Cell's Mark Almond and Gene Pitney's old-school classic also made it to deliver marvelous flashback.
