Welcome to the Pleasuredome is the debut studio album by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, first released on 29 October 1984, by ZTT and Island Records. Originally issued as a vinyl double album, it was assured of a UK chart entry at number one due to reported advance sales of over one million. The album was also a top ten seller internationally in countries such as Switzerland, Sweden, and New Zealand.

So80's (So Eighties) is a triple-disc set of classic new wave and '80s hits selected by the German DJs Blank & Jones. The pair offer a non-stop mix of hits on the first disc while the other two discs round up original extended 12" mixes of the hits.
