Choose 1985 was a various artists "hits" collection album released in Australia in late 1984, a joint venture between record companies Festival, RCA, and EMI (Cat No. RML 50006). The album spent nine weeks at the top of the Australian albums chart from December 1984 to February 1985. This is the best selling compilation record of the 1980s.[citation needed] The compilation album was available on LP and Cassette with 2 different covers (white or pink), as well as a selection of the songs' videos on VHS and Beta video cassette. Notably, due to movie copyright restrictions, "Ghostbusters" was omitted from the video cassette release.
