Ah, how’s this for a bit of middle-aged heaven? Now That’s What I Call A Million.
Yep, it’s embarrassing but true – I have bought my first Now CD, one which only features tunes that have sold a million copies or more.
I remember when the Now series first started. A few years later I was working in Venus Records in Fareham and resolutely vowed never to buy such a compilation as at the time I was a bit of a pseudo music snob.
But I’ve now been suckered into it by the eclectic mix which ranges throughout my lifetime and also contains a few new items (as well as a suspicious amount of Take That).
The only downside I can see is that Amarillo is on there – sold a million, but still a load of pants.
