Does anyone remember the Hits album series from the 80s, they were an alternative to the Now albums. Hits % had a picture of a couple og dice on 5.

I think they went under a different name, Hits 8 was the last recognisable one with the black cover, Hits 9 was a big yellow suit case on the front, they've started being called Hits albums again.

Haven't seen the video, so I guess it's rather like Genesis's "Jesus he knows me" in that it's being sarcastic.

Hits 5 ! I had it on cassette. Having to stop and fast-forward past the tracks that I didn't like.
It was a gift and the only Hits compilation I've ever owned. It's long gone now though.
