Since it has catalogued every musical trend from hip-hop to K-pop, featuring everyone from Queen to Billie Eilish and even Bob The Builder. It’s “Pieces of Me” above everything Jessica put out, even if we’re discussing the SNL, Irish jig version of the song.

Fierce - I don't even know this one, but liked their other singles so probably woulda like this one too. Britney Spears’ hook-laden Baby One More was the sound of March while Shania Twain’s frantic That Don’t Impress Me Much kicked off at the start of the summer.Nice one nominated the PSBs for omission here; would have sitted quite well with the other long-established artistes here. The first two volumes were not released on compact disc, and all subsequent releases were either single, double, or triple disc sets. If compilation albums were included in list of the UK's best-selling records, it would take ninth place, nestling between Michael Jackson's Bad and Dire Straits' Brothers In Arms.

Twenty years ago, a brave soul decided to define music for a generation—by releasing bizarre and wildly popular compilation albums. Where the albums differ is in the aggregate quality of the music they contain—while all Now albums have definitively told us what music was in a given three-to-four-month span, they have never guaranteed that that music would be necessarily good. Lest you think this was the only time Saving Abel appeared on a Now album—the 3 Doors Down–lite band was also on Now 29 with “Addicted,” a song whose uncensored hook is “I’m so addicted to all the things you do/When you’re going down on me in between the sheets. In 1984, CBS and WEA launched a rival series, titled The Hits, which focused on big American acts like Madonna, Prince and Bruce Springsteen. From “We Can’t Stop” to “Blurred Lines,” from “Get Lucky” to “Summertime Sadness”—even on down to “Sail” by AWOLNATION— Now 48 is a magical listen.If everything goes to schedule, Now 120 will arrive in March 2025, with Now 200 due in time for Christmas 2051. 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. A further release, The Final Chapter, a deluxe 4-CD and 3-LP set, was issued in December 2022, rounding off the Yearbook years 1980 to 1984. 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. The 48th volume even became a pivotal plot point in an episode of Peter Kay's Car Share, when supermarket employee Kayleigh Kitson (Sian Gibson) declared it was her favourite album.

The 1990s Yearbook series contains a new retro-90s logo design and artwork which also complements its sister decade series. It’s a big reason why Now 38’s Points Average is so high, and hence why Now 38 ranks so high (though “Fuck You” by Cee Lo Green and “Grenade” by Bruno Mars also do some heavy lifting). Jamiroquai - Canned Heat: Great song, though it should have been on Now 43, as it was a hit in June.If an internal link led you here, you may wish to change the link to point directly to the intended article. A standard 4-CD version is also issued in a gatefold "wallet" design, which retails cheaper than the mini-hardback books. A really tough listen all the way through, Now 58 starts with a low-impact Kelly Clarkson song (“Piece by Piece”) and continues with a slew of artists’ lesser hits (“Roses” by the Chainsmokers, “In the Night” by the Weeknd, “Out of the Woods” by Taylor Swift, and “Middle” by DJ Snake) and also songs by G-Eazy (again! The series is then moved forward again, with the release of Now Yearbook 1992 in July 2023 (an Extra followed in August).

It featured hits like Estelle's American Boy, The Ting Tings' That's Not My Name and Flo Rida's Low. I know it’s on Spotify, and on YouTube, and of course that the all-knowing “I” determined that it was, in fact, music, but I don’t know. It was very difficult choosing the most essential song off Now 6, which tells you why it’s ranked so high. This was a mistake: “Move It Like This” did not chart, and as of today, still does not have more than a million plays on Spotify.Can we take a step back and appreciate how important “Sorry”—and all of 2015—was for the rehabilitation of Justin Bieber? With an astounding global sales figure of over 250 million copies, this franchise has solidified its place as a cultural phenomenon and an essential cornerstone of contemporary music consumption.
