Biography

It was 30 years ago that guitarists Susanna Hoffs and Vicki Peterson and drummer Debbi Peterson formed the Bangles in a Brentwood, California, garage. They did so based on two crucial elements: their common love for rock’s golden age (“Growing up loving the same music has always been the glue for the Bangles,” says Susanna), and the crystalline sound they quite naturally ...

Editorial Reviews

Welcome to the Playlist series. Painstakingly compiled by the artists and the music nuts at Legacy Recordings, these collections truly represent an artists' complete body of work. We've fished through hundreds-thousands-of tracks to cherry pick the perfect playlists. Not just the hits (anyone can find those). The life changing cuts. The out-of-print tracks. The fan favorites everyone loves. The songs that make the artist who they are.

You’ll no doubt enjoy the sound of the beautifully remastered songs on this CD (as opposed to MP3's that contain less information, which translate into compromised sound). But we think the thing you'll appreciate most about this Playlist is that even though you didn't make it, you might wish you did.

Both send-ups were cute and a lot closer to the truth than some would have liked.

There are a few Bangles Grestest Hits collections out there. The two other popular collections are "Greatest Hits" and "The Essential"... this beats both for a few reasons. This collection takes the popular hits from "Different Light" and puts them right out in front and puts some of the lesser known album tracks in the back. This makes for a very pleasant listening experience. The album tracks used are all very well picked and hold their own against the hits and they aren't too overly poppy which makes these songs easier to enjoy. If fact some would argue that they are better than the hits. To me the hit "Eternal Flame" hasn't held up well over the years but the way this collection flows that song is much easier to take without hitting the skip button. Especially since all the songs that are similar to it like "I'll Set You Free" are no where to be found on this collection.

Another thing that works very well here is this CD clocks in at a little over 45 minutes. Many best of collections try to max out the CD or even carry over to a second CD. 45 minutes is the right amount of time to enjoy these songs without getting bored. I honestly couldn't sit through 79 minutes of Bangles songs.

If you like the Bangles and like 80s pop/rock check out this collection. This could easily be the only Bangles collection you would need.

NOTE: If you have the "We Are The 80s" Bangles collection you don't need to buy this one. It is the exact same track list and mastering. The only difference is this one has the booklet in PDF form on the disk.

Legacy's latest version of the single-disc artist overview has a few novel twists. Rather than a strict chronological recitation of an artist's chart hits, the song selections are meant to gather those tracks a fan might compile for themselves. The 14-track playlists are still hit focused, but don't always provide a full accounting of an artist's chart success. Mono singles, longer album versions, out-of-print and non-hit tracks are sequenced to optimize song-to-song segues and draw out an impression of the artist's overall catalog. The results are intended to deliver a listening experience rather than a hits archive. As a physical disc, Legacy's marketing these as CD-quality alternatives to MP3s, improving on the package's ecological aspects with a plastic-free digipack made of 100% recycled paperboard, and including additional materials (pictures, liner notes, credits, wallpapers) on the disc itself, rather than in a printed booklet.

The Bangles edition of Playlist partly reneges on the premise by reeling off their eight U.S. chart hits in order, starting with the 1986 Prince-authored breakthrough "Manic Monday" and concluding with 1989's "Be With You." Unlike other artists in this series with more extensive hit catalogs, The Bangles chart run fits snugly into half a disc. Also included is the group's AOR hit "Hero Takes a Fall" from 1984's All Over the Place, and five album tracks from All Over the Place, Different Light, and Everything. The non-hits favor covers, including Katrina and the Waves' "Going Down to Liverpool," The Merry-Go-Round's "Live," and Big Star's "September Gurls." This is the same track sequence offered on 2006's We Are the `80s.

I'm living in Afghanistan so there is no music station, I down loaded this to my Kindle and I enjoy my morning routine a little better now.

I would steal my son's tape cassette and listen to them while I got ready for work and when had to vacuum with my ear buds. What is not to like about the Bangles. It was a very bad day when they broke up. Looking at the album cover they definitely were so 80's, but I loved them.

Listen to this, walk like an Egyptian (even if it's only in your mind), and slow down your Manic Monday to enjoy these 80s hits. Keep your Eternal Flame alive!

Excellent assortment of songs from an under-rated group. If you miss the era - you can't go wrong with this CD. Love the Bangles - you'll love this.

I have not heard the Bangles in a long time. I loved and still love them. One of the contestants of the Voice sang one of their songs, it brought me back. So, I had to have The Very Best of Bangles. It is AWESOME!!!
