CD1 comes in a collectible wallet with space for CD2 to be added. Each CD has 8 tracks, featuring hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, although a good half are from the 80s, which is the decade of my teens and early adulthood and therefore a decade of some fond memories for me. The tracks are billed as "floor-fillers" and there certainly aren't any duff tracks that you've never heard of before. Make your own mind up - the track listing is as follows:

1. Culture Club - Karma Chameleon

Some crackers there, eh? Good for family parties, I'd say - whether you have it in a street or not. Neither CD is particularly long - they're around half an hour long each - so I wouldn't want to rely on them totally to provide a musical background to a party. But it wouldn't be a bad hour. I wonder if the News of the World has sent a set to Buckingham Palace. I can just imagine them singing along to the Proclaimers a bit like in the Comic Relief video from a few years ago as the evening draws to a close, worse for wear on sherry and port. Or maybe not. Given that William and Kate were born in 1982, they probably prefer something a little more contemporary.
If you can't get hold of the vouchers, never fear. I have one set of CDs to give away to one lucky winner.
All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment below, telling me which of the tracks listed above is your favourite. Mine is Temptation by Heaven 17 - a cracking dance tune that reminds me of the year I took my A levels and went off to University. Good times.
