Back To Class

Classic tracks that take you back to those college days.

Choose life. Choose a career. Choose a major. Choose a quiet life with the woman you love in a muggy suburban district of Bombay. If you've ever been confronted with any of these choices, then this album is one that you can identify with. It's one of those crazy titles that catches your eye from over the counter and can sometimes attract you to its reminiscent playlist.

The list kicks off with that old beer-guzzling classic, "Smoke On The Water" by Deep Purple and follows through with "Pinball Wizard" by The Who. Queen also lights up the hit list with "I Want To Break Free" and Billy Idol fills in for the eighties with "Mony Mony". On the other side of the yard is Smokie with "Oh Carol" and Tina Turner's cult classic "What's Love Got To Do With It".

Certain tracks (although classics) have received a revival recently and find themselves on this playlist as well. John Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane" is one such example. The album is wholly entertaining and any listener may find a favourite track amidst its vast selection of pop, rock, blues and dance classics.
