1980's 12" Singles Collection

No..... this isn't a Max Headroom forum now, so relax. Jesus - is anyone here old enough to even know who that was? I digress, so here's tonights post. I recently came upon a collection of 3 discs chock full of 1980's extended goodness. Well, mostly goodness - a lot of other stuff like Culture Club and Animotion and other music I really didn't care for was also present. But having your own blog allows you to share whatever you see fit. I saw fit to excise many tracks and make one killer disc - see how much DaddyRich loves you people? If anyone raises enough ruckus I may be persuaded to load up the whole 3 disc set - but don't hold your breath.

1. The Cure - A Forest (Extended Mix)
2. Aztec Camera - Walk Out To Winter (Long Version)
3. Soft Cell - Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go? (12" Version)
4. ABC - Tears Are Not Enough (12" Mix)
5. Simple Minds - Promised You A Miracle (12" Mix)
6. Spandau Ballet - To Cut A Long Story Short (12" Mix)
7. Echo & The Bunnymen - Never Stop (Discotheque Mix)
8. Icicle Works - Love Is A Wondeful Color (12" Mix)
9. The Jam - Precious (12" Mix)
10. Siouxsie & The Banshees - Spellbound (12" Mix)
11. Bauhaus - She's In Parties (12" Extended Mix)
12. Human League - Love Action (12" Mix)
13. Scritti Politti - Wood Beez (12" Green Mix)
14. Yazoo - Situation (12" U.S. Mix)
15. Blow Monkeys - Diggin' Your Scene (Extended Remix)
16. Tears For Fears - Shout (U.S. 12" Version)

Put in your cd player - and grab your 1980's vintage clothes and have fun.

What's the password?

1. I added ".zip" to the file, but

2. Now it wants a password.

Can you let us in on it?

Love what you do.

Hey big daddy. As a child of the 80s, I would really like to have this around, especially the Aztec Camera. I have the same problems as others and can't get it to extract... asking for a password. Please help.

Big daddy, on that last post... tis OK. I figured out you are on a Mac, which supports the character " in a directory name; I use PC, which does not. I just extracted without your directory structure and all is good with the world again. Now, if you wanted up up all 3 discs, now that would be very appreciated.
