For the 30th anniversary of Now in 2013 and the release of Now 100 in Summer 2018, the first Now album was re-compiled and re-issued. In the universe of A Star Is Born (assuming that Now exists in that universe), I’m guessing that “Maybe It’s Time” ended up in one of the country slots on an early Now.

Taking those questions into account and assigning each song an Essential Score, I—again, I am the authority here, which is valid because as Now doctrine states, all people who started the sixth grade three or four years before or after the first Now are Now experts—averaged those numbers to arrive at an Essential Score.and 67, include songs that were released after October 1, 2017, meaning they have not yet been eligible to be nominated for, and win, Grammys. And because of the micro-era it encapsulates, almost all of the songs are nostalgia-heavy and essential-feeling—for good and bad reasons. Why do they have to produce one disc worth of tripe and then little more than a few weeks later another disc full of tripe appears in the hands of these teeny-bopping pratts(!

Just to give you an idea of how the music gods (read: Now) judged Taylor Swift: “Blank Space” is the first time she ever headlined a Now album, and only the second time she landed on the lauded first half of a Now album (“I Knew You Were Trouble” on Now 46 was the first). All series with the exception of United Kingdom and the United States have been discontinued, New Zealand had two more albums released as a playlist only on Spotify, South Africa had three more albums released as a playlist on Spotify under DJ Kurtis. The series is then moved forward again, with the release of Now Yearbook 1992 in July 2023 (an Extra followed in August). In February 2023, 12" mixes all taken from the first three Now Dance compilations, originally released in 1985, 1986 and 1989, were collected on a special 4CD and 3LP set, Now Dance: The 80s, with artwork inspired by the original Now Dance 86.

In one corner you’ve got “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” by Jennifer Lopez, which was the subject of probably my favorite episode of Making the Video.

They are also notable as being the first time a Now series had released a compilation of hits from the years 1980 to 1982. Holidae In” by Chingy forever changed how one refers to spending a night at a hotel chain known for its affordable rates. The first Now is a glorious, clear mission statement, perfectly encapsulating what music was in 1998. Towards the end of the series, 3-CD digipak sets were issued, but in 2010, the long-running title was retired, and all subsequent dance-themed Now collections have been issued under the Special Editions series. There are parts of this volume which are ok at best, but the majority of the music, especially the second half of Disc 1, is just a sleep fest.

Now 55 captures the apex of DJ-dominated pop music with “Where Are Ü Now,” Major Lazer’s “Lean On,” David Guetta’s “Hey Mama,” and DJ Snake’s “You Know You Like It. Won't be available all night to come on plug, but hopefully I will be able to come for the pre party and will look forward to playing a few dance songs from the time that made the chart that were omitted from the album and hearing some other tracks from the time that I may have forgotten being played. I'll be starting at 7:30pm with pre-party from 6:30-45ish for people to play whatever they fancy or some omissions from the album.

Now 12 marked the first time both he and Justin Timberlake appeared on the compilation as they embarked on post-’NSync solo careers. It has timeless hits like “Hey Ya” and “Naughty Girl” by Beyoncé, but it also has nostalgia-heavy tracks like JoJo’s “Leave (Get Out),” Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” Britney Spears’s “Everytime,” and Los Lonely Boys’ “Heaven. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The United Kingdom series has 100 albums and has been in circulation since 1983; the old country has known what music is for much longer. The frequency in which they were released also varied from year to year; initially, and most frequently across the series, there would be one Now Dance volume per year, but in 1994 for example, there were four volumes released, and in 1996, there weren't any Now Dance compilations released. Real artists take much longer to record their albums, not to churn out album after album so quickly to milk the franchise they slave for. But I went for this one in the end solely because it silenced their critics who said they only got to number one with '5 Colours' because of the Busted connection.
