Now That's What I Call Music! 40

Now That's What I Call Music! 40


When the 40th volume of the Now series was released during November 2011, half of the 16 "Now proper" tracks were in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, while a handful of others had been there and were sliding off the chart. And then there was series staple Nickelback, the lone representative for macho rock, with the anthemic "When We Stand Together"; the band was possibly added for stylistic variety since the song had reached only number 62 and took four weeks to do so. A handful of other exceptions aside -- including Foster the People's atmospheric "Pumped Up Kicks" and Bad Meets Evil and Bruno Mars' "Lighters" -- the disc is stocked with major dance-pop singles, such as Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," Alexandra Stan's "Mr. Saxobeat," and David Guetta's "Without You" (featuring Usher). The four-track Now What's Next portion is led by VV Brown, who scored a number 11 club hit in 2009. A deluxe two-disc edition was also released; that second disc rounded up 16 of the biggest pop hits from the past several years, including "I Kissed a Girl," "I Gotta Feeling," "Dynamite," and "Tik Tok."

¿Now 40: That¿s What I Call Music (Deluxe Edition) contains an eclectic range of musical hits. This is because many of the hits are from various genres (dance, pop, and rock). I concur that this 36 song compilation is one of the well-assembled compilations among the series. The following is a sampler of the exciting musical tracks on these two cds: 1.) ¿I Wanna Go¿ by Britney Spears 2.) ¿When We Stand Together¿ by Nickelback 3.) ¿Hey Soul Sister¿ by Train 4.) ¿In the Dark¿ by Dev 5.) ¿Mr. Saxobeat¿ by Alexandra Stan 6.) ¿Rockstar¿ by Nickelback 7.) ¿Pumped Up Kicks¿ by Foster the People 8.) ¿Just a Kiss¿ by Lady Antebellum 9.) ¿Cheers (Drink To That) by Rihanna 10.) ¿Tik Tok¿ by Kesha 11.) ¿Love Story¿ by Taylor Swift 12.) ¿You Make Me Feel¿ by Cobra Starship (featuring Sabi) 13.) ¿She will Be Loved¿ by Maroon 5 14.) ¿You and I¿ by Lady Gaga This collection is best for the many who enjoy a diverse range of music on their cds.
