on October 27, 1998, was a turning point, a moment when the chaos of the auditory world was silenced; when consensus was reached by the mere declaration that nay, this—a collection of 17 contemporary songs—was music. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This was my very first Now back at Christmas 1999 when I was 10, so I may be somewhat biased in my unerring love of it, but this is the best volume of the series. Those first six opening tracks on Disc 1 in particular are just one turn of the millennium banger after another. The thesis of “Chanté’s Got a Man” is “Oh dang, it’s really too bad your boyfriend is cheating on you, but guess what: I’m in a very stable, rewarding relationship.Each release is issued as a limited edition mini-hardback book, with the CDs in sleeves forming the pages of the ' yearbook' which contains an introductory overview of the year, original 7" single artwork, trivia, chart positions and a quiz.

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. He also has four uncredited entries as a member of the charity projects Helping Haiti (Now 75), Justice Collective (Now 84), Artists for Grenfell (Now 97), and World Music project 1 Giant Leap (Now 52). P. Bergen, the latter drove a taupe coloured Volkswagen Camper Van around Montreal in the mid 1990s. Disc 2 starts off on a downbeat vibe with R Kelly’s soaring ballad, If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time.She made her debut with I Should Be So Lucky on Now 11, and is still going on the most recent release, Now 116, with Tension. Each line of the song’s second verse describes a different member of the group: “Tina’s doin’ her dance, Jon’s lookin’ for romance, Paul’s gettin’ down on the floor, while Hannah’s screamin’ out for more. These were all released on CD and magnetic cassette, but with the 1993 and 1994 volumes also being released on the vinyl format. Many of these artists have gone on to become global superstars such as Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, Walk The Moon, Maggie Rogers, Rae Sremmurd, Zara Larsson, Jacob Whitesides, and Tate McRae. The Now Yearbook series continues both forwards, with Now Yearbook 1985 issued in November 2022, and backwards, with the release of Now Yearbook 1979 in September 2022 (an Extra followed in October).

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. 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.We’re getting into the nitty gritty now, where every remaining Now has a valid argument for it being the best ever—just over 10 points separate Now 4 from the very top. The first few albums featured artist montages on the cover, but that practice was abandoned after Now 5, because the track list is often finalised so late that any problems in securing images could potentially delay the release. A hot take: “Need You Now” is one of the best songs of the decade, across all genres; it’s probably top five.
