Then, Now and NEVER…

31 07 2008

Good grief, I am feeling OLD.  I remember buying NOW 1 and liked it so much that I also bought into the whole Now That’s What I Call Music concept and bought numbers 2, 3 and 4.  I think I stopped there… though number 5 does look a bit familiar.

But can they really have got to number 70 already..?  I know it is more than one a year but the whole thing has made me feel 70 years old.

Perhaps most surprising is that the compilation album still exists and that enough people are buying these even though our iTunes-dominated world means that making ‘mixtapes‘ in our own homes is easier than ever before.  Mind you, I now have a sudden urge to download Now 1…  better go for a walk to calm down.

This post made me chuckle….the first one I bought was NOW 18.
