Men Without Hats - Rhythm Of Youth - 1982
I didn't really get into the album until after I had graduated from High School and began exploring music in general. I used to go to used record stores constantly, looking for new stuff to buy. That's when I got this album. Obviously, it's a great album with a lot of great singles.
I know that a lot of 80s compilation albums use the extended mix of the song, as well as radio stations playing their 80s hour shows. I personally prefer the single version, that starts right into the song full-bore. Just like on the video. I also think the best song on the album, and a key track for any 80s mixes I might make, is I Got the Message. Best song.
Had fun with the cover. Half tempted to get a tattoo of their circle strike logo. Wouldn't that be cool?
