Golden Earring is a Dutch rock band, founded in 1961 in The Hague as the Golden Earrings.

James Taylor had scored eight Top 40 hits by the fall of 1976 when Warner Brothers marked the end of his contract with this compilation. One of those hits, the Top Ten gold single “Mockingbird,” a duet with his wife Carly Simon, was on Elektra Records, part of the Warner family of labels and presumably available, but it was left off.

A decade after Chris Daughtry came in fourth on the fifth season of American Idol, the singer's post-Idol band DAUGHTRY has amassed enough hits to create a hits collection, hence the 2016 release of It's Not Over: The Hits So Far. This 13-track collection doesn't contain every single DAUGHTRY track issued to radio – the most conspicuous absences are "Outta My Head," "Start of Something Good," and "Battleships," all entries on the U.S. Adult Top 40 – but it has all the big active rock hits, ranging from the Top 10s "It's Not Over" and "Home" to "Over You," "What About Now," "No Surprise," and the singalong "Long Live Rock & Roll."

Norway's a-ha took "Take on Me" to the number one spot on Billboard's Top 40 in 1985, thanks to the award-winning animated video that accompanied it. Still, a-ha contributed rather accordingly to the '80s pop sound, drenching their music with bouncy riffs and employing the keyboard as the foundation to their colorful formula. Headlines and Deadlines: The Hits of a-ha assembles all of their singles together, a definite one-stop for all of their music. Combining ballads and radiant '80s pop, this set includes their most fervent offering in "The Sun Always Shines on T.V.," which hit number 20 in 1986 and originated from Hunting High and Low…
