Spare your wrath about 80s music, please, this is my childhood we're talking about.

I've been looking for an old CD my parents used to play when I was little, caled "here come the hits", but it doesn't seem to be anywhere visible. In fact, it seems to have dropped out of existence entirely; I can't even find a tracklisting on the internet so I can gather the songs from other sources. I know "shout" by tears for fears was one of the songs, and "black cars look better in the shade" and "one night in bangkok" are likely contenders. Can somebody help me find an official tracklist for this album of 80's one-hit-wonders so I can get some closure?

Just so you know, this is emphatically NOT a CD of one-hit wonders. Several of the artists on that list had more than one number one single.

It also looks like a Canadian CD. Anything with Gowan on it is pretty much automatically Canadian, so focus your search on Canadian vendors.

thanks dudes. the Gowan song was the one I really couldn't place; totally can't find anything by him.
