iTunes Lowers Prices for "'80s Hits" Albums
If you are a kid of the '70s and '80s you've got to get these
Classic hits from 1980 to 1990 are what most of us call real music. If you are a kid of the '70s or you were born in the '80s, you remember all those songs by Journey, The Scorpions, Eurythmics, and Guns N' Roses.
The iTunes staff have put together a great collection of music albums. And all of them can be yours for just $7.99 (€5.99) each. There are currently 80 different albums and most of them are "Greatest Hits," so you're not just getting one or two good songs from each artist or band.
You can sort them by Bestsellers or All-Time Bestsellers, although the difference is not major and the best ones are still in front.
Another great album is Guns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction." For the same price you get 12 hard rock hits. "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Welcome to the Jungle," and "Paradise City" are among these, so you know you're getting a good deal.
Talking about "Hairspray-metal of the '80s," Bon Jovi made the list with their "Slippery when wet," released in August of 1986. You must remember "Livin' On a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name," or "Wanted Dead or Alive."
If heavy metal is not your thing, then you will love this next one. Michael Jackson's "Thriller" released exactly 31 years ago sounds like a Greatest Hits album. There are 9 tracks that will make you want to do the zombies' dance. "Thriller," "Beat It," or "Billie Jean" are among them.
Moving to the romantic side of things, you may want to choose "The Best of Sade," with hits like "No ordinary love" or "Smooth Operator" or The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from "Dirty Dancing" featuring "The Time of My Life."
The '80s are not only rock and blues, but there's also some good, old rap. "Run-DMC: Greatest Hits" was released in 2002 but it holds 18 of the band's tracks from the '80s, including "Walk this Way."
Check out the iTunes list and you are going to get the best of Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams, Tears for Fears, Gloria Estefan, Billy Joel, ZZ Top, and many, many others.
