this is why I don't think it's the correct track listing. I'm PRAYING that this is for some other compilation and we'll get a NOW Dance album similar to this one from 4 years ago:



What an album wub.gif I do miss the NOW Dance series.

Why don't they release spin-offs once a month instead of once a week?

That is shocking for the 'very best' of Now Dance. Would hope it's not correct. Gave in and bought the new Now 90s for my car the other day though,

It is correct according to Amazon. Jenny Fisher obviously does not have a clue as to what dance music is. Same with NOW Rock. Decent songs but they weren't rock. They need to bring back Ashley Abram. At least he has a clue

The Rock album was a bit out but not by too much. That Dance album is absolutely horrific. And the 'best' appears to cover the past 5 years only.

Being a compiler of Now CDs must be the cushiest jib in the world right now.

This can't be the right track listing, how do you dance to "Airplanes"?!

I honestly would LOVE to work for the NOW Team! I'd force them to add flop pop to the NOWs and make NOWs like "NOW That's What I Call Madonna songs that not many people know about" laugh.gif

That tracklist is so boring, especially after the amazing Club Hits installments from the past couple years. That cover is great though.

NOW Management: Jenny, we need another compilation by tonight - 'The Very Best of Now Dance', ok?

Jenny Fisher: Great! So, right, that's N-Trance, Underworld, Darude...

NOW Management: Ah, no, see it's for a younger 'youth' audience. Nothing before 2009.

Jenny Fisher: No probs, Swedish House Mafia/Disclosure/Avicii etc right?

NOW Management: Well, yeah...but it's got to appeal to really young teens too, ones who can't actually go to clubs yet. So we need some proper poppy stuff too.

Jenny Fisher: Like?

NOW Management: Well, you know, like...Cheryl Cole? And, erm...Ellie Goulding, Kelly Clarkson, those sort of acts. Make them about half the album.

Jenny Fisher: Wait, did you say half the...

NOW Management: Oh yeah, we need to be proper diverse, yeah? So we need some rap, R&B, put John Legend on there, he's huge with the kids right now. What's that big song of his?

Jenny Fisher: ....All Of Me?

NOW Management: Yep. Definitely put that on there.

Jenny Fisher: It's a slow piano ballad.

NOW Management: Really? Crap. Find a remix of it or something.

Jenny Fisher: Ok, sorry, we seriously need to change the name of this then because this clearly isn't the Very Best of anything, the music forums are gonna go nuts...

NOW Management: Look, we can argue forever about this, but it has to be at the manufacturing plant by tonight, we've got three more to do before Christmas, just hurry things up, ok? And don't forget All About That Bass!

Jenny Fisher: Sigh.

Ashley Abram: LOL, I retired at the right time...

I'm sick of Now just forcing an album down our throats every month, It's going to affect their sales in the long term.

She is clearly writing her notice right now laugh.gif

I bet I could knock up a ok-ish NOW Dance album in 5 minutes.

Apparently, I heard Ashley Abram got sacked because of the NOW 81 incident where he replaced Jason Mraz with Flo Rida. To be honest, there was space on NOW 81 CD 2 for one more song so they could have put both songs instead

That can't be true? Surely he's made bigger misfires than that in the past?

The Blink 182 swearing incident on Now 49, and the Sugababes one on Now 56 that didn't even get fixed were surely worse. He just retired didn't he? Anyone know how old he is?

I noticed that he compiled the Moods compilation that came out a few weeks ago, so perhaps he left the Now series itself as oppposed to retiring altogether for some reason...
