    Best 80's CD compilation

    I didn't see this ever being asked before when I did a search, but I may have missed it.

    Seems like every compilation CD has the same 500 or so 80's songs on them. Usually I find when I buy them I only like about 1/2 the tracks. Now there's CD-R so you can make your own compilations.

    What would be on your perfect 80's complilation CD? (limit to about 16 tracks since that's pretty standard) - They don't have to be hits.

    1. Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Welcome To The Pleasuredome
    2. Billy Idol - Flesh For Fantasy
    3. Vicious Pink - Fetish
    4. Patrick Cowley - Megatron Man
    5. Gene Loves Jezebel - Desire (Come And Get It)
    6. Berlin - Sex
    7. Peter Brown - They Only Come Out At Night
    8. Camouflage - The Great Commandment
    9. Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
    10. Peter Godwin - Images Of Heaven
    11. Deodato - S.O.S., Fire In The Sky
    12. INXS - Devil Inside
    13. Propaganda - Dr. Mabuse
    14. Ultravox - The Voice
    15. Eurythmics - Here Comes The Rain Again
    16. Icehouse - No Promises
