Sony Special Products' Hits Of series follows a pretty set script. The discs are short at only ten tracks and contain a mix of big hits, middling hits, and totally forgotten songs by pretty well-known artists. It is a unique strategy that brings some interesting songs to light and makes for good listening. The biggies on Hits of 1986 are the Outfield's "Your Love," the Bangles' "Walk Like an Egyptian," Eddie Money's "Take Me Home Tonight," and the Fabulous Thunderbirds' "Tuff Enuff" with the rest being chart-climbers like Don Johnson's "Heartbeat," ELO's "Calling America," and Lisa Lisa's "All Cried Out" as well as chart-missers like Loverboy's "This Could Be the Night" and Clarence Clemons' "You're a Friend of Mine." One wishes the disc were longer to take more advantage of the eclectic song selections. As it is, the short running time makes the disc hard to recommend to anyone but the most devoted '80s fans. ~ Tim Sendra
