Genre: Reggae, New Wave, Pop, Folk, Soul, Rock, Funk / Label: Universal Music

EMIs massive five-disc collection of 101 80s Hits is about as budget as you can get without putting the thing together yourself at home. The 101 tracks are heavy on the U.K. hits, so for every international smash like Karma Chameleon Culture Club and Walking on Sunshine Katrina & the Waves theres a Kayleigh Marillion and a Good Heart Feargal Sharkey. That said, it's nice to hear something other than Queen's We Will Rock You, and hearing Limahl spin his Neverending Story next to Whitesnake is kind of fun, but these collections are a dime a dozen! The Human League are an English synthpop band formed in Sheffield. Dont Dream Its Over is a song by the Australian rock band Crowded House.

If you're even a casual fan of '80s music, you're more than familiar with the rising use of saxophone in pop and rock music during that decade. It's hard to say exactly why the sax solo became so popular and yet so offputting during this period, but maybe a kitchen-sink approach to production helped drown out selectivity in the decade's often busy arrangements. Even so, there are certainly examples like these of the saxophone being used wisely and even perhaps tastefully during the '80s, especially in the genres of mainstream rock, arena rock and soft rock. And, of course, there are always surprises. Here's a look - in no particular order - at five of the best saxophone-heavy songs of the era.

With a career as illustrious as the Moody Blues, it's difficult to group together all their best material on a single disc, but Legend of a Band acts as a brief yet pleasant jaunt through some of their most popular work. While some of their early material is deemed slightly progressive because of lengthy keyboard suites and instrumental runs, it wasn't until the mid- to late '70s that their music began to take a more rock & roll-oriented path.

For many mainstream listeners, Toby Keith first appeared on their radar in 2002 with "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)," the blistering counterpoint to Alan Jackson's sorrowful "Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning" that turned Keith into a talk radio phenomenon and a genuine American star. Like many overnight success stories, Toby Keith's celebrity didn't happen overnight – it was the beginning of his second act, as the 2008 double-disc compilation 35 Biggest Hits makes plain….
