HERC's M!X: Just Can't Get Enough: New Wave Hits of the '80s: The Longer Versions

Aside from HERC's laughable attempt at cover art, today's playlist is a tasty collection of songs that appear on Rhino's oh so glorious Just Can't Get Enough series.  Rather than the shorter, single versions featured on the Rhino discs and tapes, this playlist features the full length album versions or 12" single versions of select songs.  View the tracklist below or listen to the playlist at the bottom (The eighteen songs that are green in chart below are not currently available via Spotify.).  To read more about the original series, visit The CD Project, 1976-1985: My Favorite Decade and this old post from The Hideaway.  Let HERC know if he missed any songs in the Comments.

  1. On so many of these I prefer the longer cuts. The better to dance to. :)
