Beginning with the classic feel-good sing-along anthem ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ from Wham! and continuing with a run of some of most memorable hits of the decade from Kenny Loggins with ‘Footloose’, the massive number one ‘Uptown Girl’ from Billy Joel and the triumphant ‘I’m Still Standing’ from Elton John. Moving on with a selection of songs from some of the greatest female voices of the decade – including Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton, Chaka Khan, Irene Cara and Olivia Newton-John. Up next is a run of hits from producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman including smashes from Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim and Dead Or Alive. Completing the disc is Pop gold from The Bangles, Kim Wilde, Matthew Wilder, and finishing with the epic ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ from Cher.

Disc 2 kicks off with The Communards’ chart topper ‘Don't Leave Me This Way’ before a string of massive number ones from Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Duran Duran, Soft Cell, The Human League, Culture Club and the party staple ‘Come On Eileen’ from Dexys Midnight Runners. Soul and Dance hits from KC & The Sunshine Band, Billy Ocean and The Four Tops are included before finishing this disc with the number one ‘Happy Talk’ from Captain Sensible.

Disc 3 gets underway with the huge collaboration from Meat Loaf with Cher on ‘Dead Ringer For Love’ and some serious partying with ‘(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right’ from The Beastie Boys. Other iconic legends Iggy Pop and Electric Light Orchestra lead to the massive Rock smash ‘The Final Countdown’ from Europe. Celebrated hits from Tina Turner and Blondie precede legendary Pop from Sinitta, Hazell Dean, Tight Fit and Baltimora, before Stars On 45’s salute to ABBA and bringing the disc to a close with UB40’s enduring ‘Red Red Wine’.

The final disc opens with the Soulful ‘All Night Long’ from Lionel Richie and continuing with dancefloor-fillers from Shalamar, Kool & The Gang, The Gap Band, Odyssey and the legendary Diana Ross with ‘I’m Coming Out’. 80’s favourites ‘Jump (For My Love)’, ‘It’s Raining Men’ and ‘Feels Like I’m In Love’ lead on to the number one version of ‘La Bamba’ from Los Lobos. Pure party fun tracks including ‘Can Can’, ‘The Birdie Song’ and ‘Star Trekkin’ lead the way to a trio of iconic 80’s movie themes… ‘Ghostbusters’ from Ray Parker Jr., Deniece Williams ‘Lets Hear It For The Boy’ from ‘Footloose’, and the aptly titled ‘(I’ve had) The Time Of My Life from ‘Dirty Dancing’.
