NOW MUSIC continues to celebrate their pop reign with a very special release NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL NOW, a five-disc album, with 100 pop classics. The most trusted curators of pop have now selected just one track from the 100 NOW albums, taking you on a nostalgic pop journey over four decades.

Carefully selected by the ultimate playlist creators, NOW That’s What I Call NOW is the definitive soundtrack to the past 35 years going back to 1983 with Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon, to Wham!’s Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go in 1984, the song of the summer of 1989 Soul II Soul’s Back To Life (However Do You Want Me), the band with more tracks than any other band in the first ten NOW album’s UB40 and their track Kingston Town, into the 90’s with M People’s Moving On Up, classic Texas track, Say What You Want, Fatboy Slim’s anthem, Praise You, Justin Timberlake’s the ultimate break up track Cry Me A River, Amy Winehouse’s REHAB, The Black Eyed Peas I Gotta Feeling, Nelly Furtado’s Maneater, One Direction’s debut single What Makes You Beautiful, Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex and to 2018 Shotgun by George Ezra.

Steve Pritchard co-Managing Director NOW Music says “Following on from hitting that magical Now 100, NOW That’s What I Call NOW is a 35-year celebratory romp through 4 decades of pop music. It has taken us a long time to select, what we think are, the biggest and most evocative tracks from each of the numbered NOW’s to create this historical playlist of pop classics.”
