About this deal

It featured hits like Estelle's American Boy, The Ting Tings' That's Not My Name and Flo Rida's Low. By contrast, Now was a joint venture between two of the UK's biggest record labels, EMI and Virgin, giving compilers immediate access to the day's biggest songs. AI hasn't had a record played at a funeral, AI doesn't know what song was playing when you walked down the aisle. tracks across 2 CDs, providing THE essential selection of the UK's chart and radio airplay favourites. She was just nine years old when Whip My Hair featured on Now 78 (2011); and had to wait more than a decade for her second appearance, with Meet Me At Our Spot on Now 111 (2022).

Very Good: The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch. The album spent a record 13 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard 200, the most for any multi-artist compilation album since 1963. They are Phil ‘no-you-can’t-license-my-song’ Collins’ US number one ‘Two Hearts’ (from the Buster soundtrack) and another American chart-topper, INXS’ ‘Need You Tonight’, which wasn’t a No 2 hit in Britain until it was re-released in November 1988, in case you are wondering about the dates. They debuted on the very first Now album with their number one hit Is There Something I Should Know, and are back on the latest volume with Black Moonlight - a single which failed to make the top 75. We actually stuck the number 12 to the bottom of a swimming pool, painted some polystyrene balls with the Now logo and had a photographer take a photo that would become the cover," said artwork designer Neal Martinez.

Covering the years 1973 to 1992 (so far), these albums have marked the first appearance of 700 songs on any Now compilation.

With record labels reluctant to give approval to the new format, it ended up as a single disc containing only 15 songs.Terence Trent D'Arby's hits are now credited to Sananda Maitreya, the name he chose in 2001; while Eurythmics now insist on the awkward billing of "Eurythmics, Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart". One of the reasons music stands the test of time is that we have personal experiences associated with songs - so people who are deeply knowledgeable about music can curate playlists better than Artificial Intelligence.

In 1984, CBS and WEA launched a rival series, titled The Hits, which focused on big American acts like Madonna, Prince and Bruce Springsteen. Pop gems from Living In A Box, Brother Beyond and Samantha Fox had to be included, along with the last top ten smash of the 80s for Duran Duran with ‘All She Wants Is’. This collection comes to a close with ‘Love Changes Everything’ from Michael Ball, taken from the Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical Aspects Of Love. However, she did sneak onto the tracklist of the most recent release, Now 116, as a featured artist on Sam Smith's single Vulgar. INXS - Need You Tonight: Similar percussion to 'She Drives Me Crazy', great riff, another one not included on the 2023 CD.

Michael Jackson has only appeared twice: On Now 4, with the drippy 1970s ballad Farewell My Summer Love, and again on Now 88 with the posthumous single Love Never Felt So Good. M (Mint): The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality.
