Now That's What I Call 40 Years: 1993-2003 - Volume 2

£14.99

Released: 24th November 2023. NOW That’s What I Call Music! is excited to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and we are proud to present four very special collector’s editions that together present 250 essential hits from the past 40 years on CD. The second of these is NOW That's What I Call 40 Years: Volume 2 - 1993-2003. Looking back at 10 years of huge Pop hits, this special edition 3CD is housed in ‘hard-back-book’ packaging, including a 26-page booklet featuring a summary of the era, a track-by-track guide, a quiz, plus original singles and NOW artwork. 60 tracks that span 10 years of NOW releases, including tracks from all of the numbered NOW That’s What I Call Music! albums from NOW 26 to NOW 54. CD 1 opens with the epic ‘I’d Do Anything For Love…’ from Meat Loaf, followed by more #1s from D:Ream, and the 15-week at-the-top ‘Love Is All Around’ by Wet Wet Wet. The collection includes dance anthems from Livin’ Joy and The Source feat. Candi Staton, R&B from All-4-One and Mark Morrison, Reggae from Dawn Penn, Rap from Coolio & L.V., as well as contemporary classics from The Pretenders with ‘I’ll Stand By You’, Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’, ‘Angels’ from Robbie Williams and ‘He’s On The Phone’ from Saint Etienne - alongside massive pop hits from Corona and Whigfield. The mid-90s tracks include #1s from Oasis, Spice Girls, George Michael, and The Prodigy… and toward the end of the decade, pure-pop enjoyed a huge resurgence with Aqua, All Saints, Backstreet Boys, and Steps emerging to great success, along with a future Global superstar – Britney Spears. As the new Millennium arrived, floor-fillers from Sonique and Black Legend topped the charts, as did Craig David and Gabrielle. Hear’Say enjoyed a massive #1, ‘Pure & Simple’, after winning the ‘Popstars’ TV talent show. Timeless pop gold features from S Club, Girls Aloud, and ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’, which became Kylie Minogue’s biggest hit thirteen years after her debut #1. Huge U.S. R&B tracks from Nelly & Kelly Rowland and Mary J. Blige are included before this volume concludes with the #1 ballad ‘If You’re Not The One’ from Daniel Bedingfield. NOW That’s What I Call 40 Years – celebrating NOW’s legacy with Massive Pop Hits from the past 40 years.
