Annette - Back To The Beach - 1987

The King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale, performs with a young Stevie Ray Vaughn and an old Frankie Avalon. There is a catchy tune from Eddie Money and other tunes to like. And Surfin' Bird to dislike. Link in comments.

Blondel - The Opera - 1983

Tim Rice and Stephen Oliver contrived this comic Opera which was later rearranged and enlarged. It's a must for Stephen Oliver admirerers but won't please everyone.

Disco Classics Megamix - 70's

92 original recordings are used in this megamix and the beat never changes. The tunes sprint past at a rate of 1.53 songs-per-minute, killing about 1 hour. A list of the songs is included. I like this thing. Link in comments.
