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. Hits of 1989 breaks a bit from that plan by being split pretty much 50/50 between hits and misses. In the hits column are biggies by the Bangles ("Eternal Flame"), Cyndi Lauper ("I Drove All Night"), Living Colour ("Cult of Personality"), Bad English ("When I See You Smile"), and New Kids on the Block ("Hangin' Tough"). The rest are not so much misses as lesser known songs by big artists like Warrant, Luther Vandross, and the Outfield. The format doesn't present a definitive picture of the year by any means and it is too short, but it does round up some songs that are worth hearing again. ~ Tim Sendra
