Now That's What I Call Music!

Back in the 1980's the first ever record I bought with my very own money was "Now that's what I call music 11" It had Kylie Minogue on it and a host of other very popular records of the time.

I was enthralled by it because it seemed to good to be true - ALL of your favorite songs on the same record! You didn't need to buy the singles at all! Of course at that period of the 1980's I realise that record companies like "Stock, Aiken and Waterman" probably produced most of those songs anyway, but at the time it was sensational!

Well, being bang up to date with the new wave of technology, EMI records have now released a whole new "Now That's What I Call Music!" Idea.

Basically, their website allows music fans (that's me and you) to create our own personalized Now! album. To celebrate the launch, they are offering 10% off any digital download by using the voucher code: nowlaunch10

The site allows users to choose their own tracks from any of the themed albums e.g. 80s, 90s, 00s, love songs and even an album of number 1s. Each theme offers over 100 tracks to pick from so you can create a full album of tracks you want to hear - no 'fillers'.

Though, I think I know which songs I will be choosing. All of the same songs that were on Now That's What I Call Music 11. Or as Kylie says on that Album "I should be so lucky!"
