Just Cant Get Enough: New Wave Hits of the 80s, Vol. 1
1994: Rhino R2 71694
Flash & The Pan
The Flying Lizards
Ironically this first of the Just Cant Get Enough series contains a really weak roster My Sharona&148; and Cruel to be Kind being the only genuine hits and the others being presumably one-hit-wonders in the UK that never even registered in the USif you can even call them hitsoddities, really. The Flying Lizards cover of Money (Thats What I Want) might be a good example of the justification for this collection: a non-hit that became more popular much later when presented in retrospect as archetypal New Wave weirdness. (I happen to like it.)
