Oblivion from the Obvious to the Obscure 8 septembre 2004
Par mwreview - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Living in Oblivion series is the way compilations should be made. It offers a wide variety of music from the very well-known to bands I've never heard of. The booklet includes a brief, interesting history of the tracks and there are photos of EVERY band on the track list. Even for some of the more famous bands like Bow Wow Wow and Spandau Ballet, the LIO people did not choose the obvious songs like "I Want Candy," or "True" that we've all heard tons of times on the raido, but chose other hits we may have forgotten about or never heard. The LIO series is an excellent way to catch up with some 1980s favorites while also discovering stuff you missed.

Awesome collection of hits that aren't run of the mill! 30 novembre 2005
Par Get What We Give - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Living In Oblivion series of CD compilations does something that many similar compilations do NOT do: they give us some great variety of "hits".

There is no doubt that "Mickey" by Toni Basil was a huge hit. There's also no doubt that "Our Lips are Sealed" was a break out hit for the Go Go's, but the Funboy Three version wasn't. But what about "Living in a Box"? It only hit the Billboard top 100 at #89 in 1987. So why is it here? Why are a large number of these songs? They're not top 10 hits, right?


I'm sick to death of so many compilations relying on top 40 hits from the 80's. The U.S. music tastes are typically very different from those of Europe. Just because a song doesn't make the U.S. Billboard top 40 doesn't mean that it isn't a hit in other countries. And although I'm an American, my music tastes have always run more in line with those of Europe.

I'm delighted that the Living in Oblivion series (and the Pop and Wave series) have incorporated a variety of hits from the U.S. and Europe.

I also like that some of the more obscure groups and their songs are available on these compilations. There are several songs on these albums that never were released on CD (as they hadn't come into being at the time of the groups' albums initial releases), so albums such as these are the only place where you can find these hits. The Boys Don't Cry song "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" hit the Billboard charts at #12 in 1986, but the group disappeared soon thereafter. Then all of a sudden a dance version of that same song came out in the early 2000's and rocketed up the dance charts.

Don't be misled, the Living in Oblivion series is one of the absolutely best series for a variety of music from the 80's. If you want to hear run of the mill, top 40 only hits from the 80's, well, then you'll just have to look elsewhere.

Also, the liner notes and pictures of the groups included in the jewel box are really clever. You get to find out what the chart position was for the songs in the compilation and see what the groups looked like at the time of the song's release. My only issue with these liner notes is that the author of them seems to be disparaging the very music which these albums are espousing. Apparently many believe that the music from the 80's was vacuous and devoid of emotion. One need only listen to the song "The Promise" by the group "When in Rome" (Living in Oblivion Volume 5) to know that such a statement is false. While that group only had this one hit and then faded into obscurity, "The Promise" made the Billboard Top 100 at #11 and the Billboard Dance Chart at #1.

Anyway... I can't recommend this album and its entire series any more! It's simply awesome! Before believing those who would disparage this series of albums, please check the Billboard charts and you'll see that these songs were in fact hits.

What you missed on US radio 2 avril 2001
Par Dale Tegtman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Leans hard to the Europop sound of the 80s. BowWowWow, Classix Nouveaux - bands you didn't hear on US radio and won't hear about on Behind The Music. Shiny,Shiny doesn't turn up much on 80's stations, either. Enjoyable Ira Robbins editorial, too.

New Wave "Hits" 14 septembre 2007
Par David Lord - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
The reviews of those who don't remember most of these songs being "hits" on 'their' radio stations got a chuckle out of me. Up until 1982 I lived in Iowa. Even on my college radio station I heard nothing like these tracks. Then I moved to New York City.

Being an underground record collector I had already heard about the fabled WLIR / WDRE on Long Island. A high point of the move (aside from regular outings to CBGBs in Manhattan) was finally being able to regularly hear new wave 24 hours a day on one of the 2 stations in the US that actually played European music (the other being KROQ in California)! Come On Eileen was in regular rotation at LIR about a year and a half before it hit the US pop charts, as was the original foreign language version of 99 Luftballons.

I recorded just about every track on this CD off WLIR back in the day, along with many other wonders, and the tapes (reburned to CD) are still my favorite mixes- especially when doing late night artwork or writing. The only tracks I don't remember hearing there were the 999 and Stranglers tracks. Since I own about every release of both of those two bands, it's a pleasant surprise to see some of my favorite heavier 'punk' in with the new wave hits (on LIR at least!) represented here.

This collection is an awesome overview of New Wave- and I finally know the artists whose names I didn't catch on the radio...

For the 80s new wave fan 13 août 2005
Par T. Jackson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I remember all of these songs and love most of them! But, I am not looking for mainstream 80s stuff, a lot of the songs on the Living in Oblivion series were hits on MTV or in the postpunk/new wave clubs or college radio. Anyone who hit these types of clubs at the time should know these. A great collection for the true fan of new wave/club music.
