Now That's What I Call Music 1-100 - The Badger Remix - Now 53
  • I'm uhmmed and ahhhed with The Reflex and Young At Heart but memories of Hair made me go to Hollywood.
  • White Lines just edged out by Time After Time, an all-time classic song.

    No love for old Gazza Glitter, eh?
    Not for that. Had it been Rock N Roll (Part 2) then maybe.
  • Controversial, but I'm going with big Phil's 'Against All Odds'. Loved the drums at the time and it was one of the first big 'soundtrack' songs I remember.

    Easily could have gone for Cyndi, Grandmaster, Duran, Ultavox, Frankie or Wham!
    Let's go exploring....
  • Smalltown Boy almost nicked it, but Cyndi, once again takes the crown with Time After Time. Sad that she'll have two in a row, but them's the breaks. 

    Now 4 coming up in a few moments.
    Let's go exploring....

  • Shout to the top! for me.
  • Pride (in the Name of Love) for me please.  I don't care for a lot of U2's output but they'd have a strong 10 track best of and that might be the best of their best.
    You have minecraft?
  • I agree with Moot there, but Pride comes a close second for me.

    Together in Electric Dreams is my pick.

    Gotta consider Ghostbusters though, if you were to go with the genuine spirit of Now compilations. Cheese has a place here.

    It's pride for me, but fucking stop putting shitty queen on all these.
  • My pick is Its A Hard Life
  • On my Now playlist, the winner here was Electric Dreams. Controversially Julian Lennon was a close second.
  • I'm somewhere between Electric Dreams, Hello, Ghostbusters and Somebody's Watching Me.

    Gonna have to go with Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me. So 80's it hurts.

  • I am now listening to all the playlists in order, and just want to highlight what a brilliant track Undercover Of The Night by the Stones is.
  • I'm going Tesla Girls by OMD.
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • Don't feel strongly about any of these really. Shame some from the last one weren't on this one.

    But just for the hell of it let's say:

    Ghostbusters!
  • Electric Dreams for me.

    I hear there's a regstock coming
  • Tricky one this, there's a few bangers but doesn't feel as strong overall. I'd go with Electric Dreams. Gotta love a bit of Moroder.

    I’m not really voting in this but Axel F all the way.
  • This is purely a personal favourite, but I’m going for Fine Young Cannibals. Johnny Come Home is a regular earworm for me to this day.

    I’ve no rational explanation for why I want to take that over all-time classics like Walking on Sunshine, Kayleigh, Axel F, etc. But I do.
  • Some shit there. A View to a Kill or Simple Minds would be my pick.

Howdy, Stranger!
