  • 16 Strokes is an excellent compilation of Billy Squiers’ all-time greatest hits. All of the songs on the CD hit high on the charts or at least got substantial airplay in the 80s and 90s. His strongest hits on the CD are his earlier ones, but you’ll find yourself listening to the CD and saying “oh yeah, I remember that one” when you listen to the second half of this collection. It wasn’t until I was listening to the radio and heard “Lonely is the Night” that I realized the song wasn’t on this CD. Failing to include that huge hit was either a blunderous oversight by the record label or a genius act to keep fans wanting more so they go back to purchase the “In The Dark” CD. This would have been a 5-star CD with that hit included. It is sure to be his signature song as time goes on. In this reviewer’s opinion, this CD is definitely worth the money, but you just can’t help not feeling at least a little bit taken… one more stroke wouldn’t have hurt.
