About this deal

Twenty years ago, a brave soul decided to define music for a generation—by releasing bizarre and wildly popular compilation albums. Now a Victims selection – Project’s hypnotic King Of My Castle which is followed by Alice Deejay’s pounding Back In My Life. Overall, Now 55 is not this high because of the quality of the DJ songs (well, except for “Where Are Ü Now,” which is perfect)—it’s this high because of the charting success of the DJ songs, and the overwhelming commercial success of Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” which also lands on Now 55. Although downloads and streaming appear to pose an existential threat to the Now series, the numbered volumes still sell in big quantities. Now Dance 2000: Geri Halliwell – Mi Chico Latino (Charlie Rapino Version), Bob Marley vs Funkster De Luxe – Sun Is Shining, Ann Lee – 2 Times, Alice Deejay – Back In My Life (Thrillseekers Remix Edit), Tin Tin Out featuring Emma Bunton – What I Am (Groove Chronicle Remix), .

In 2021, the company launched its "Yearbook" series, a new series of albums collecting the hits from a specific year. Now Dance 92 (2 November 1992) Uniquely, 2-LP/2-MC/CD* with 12" mixes,*single CD with abridged tracklisting and 7" edits.In addition to the expected list of pop stars, the UK chart's diversity is demonstrated by the inclusion of a number of different styles, from dance ( Moloko , ATB , etc) to indie ( Supergrass , Bran Van 3000 ) to reggae ( Bob Marley ), and all points in between. Captain Sir Tom Moore is the oldest singer to feature on the compilation, having reached his 100th birthday when he sang alongside Michael Ball on the charity cover version of You'll Never Walk Alone (Now 106). 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. By the time Now 44 came out, both were riding high with You Drive Me Crazy and Man, I Feel Like A Woman.

The Essential Score for each album was determined by rating each song’s essentialness on a scale of 1 to 10. But in the end, with a razor thin margin, I opted for Wamdue Project - 'King Of My Castle' because I have loved that for longer. It’s strange: People are pretty rude about mumblerap, but I don’t remember anyone throwing their hands up about Mystikal yelling “Danger! Now 44 was the first (and probably only) compilation to sell more than 250,000 copies a week for 4 weeks.They are also notable as being the first time a Now series had released a compilation of hits from the years 1980 to 1982.
