Volume WHAT?!?

I love music.  Not new news 😀

There is a series of CDs called “Now That’s What I Call Music” that compiles current hits from various artists onto one CD.  I love them.  It’s like an already-made mix tape without all the work.  ***winning ***  The first one I bought was Volume 2.  Released in 1999, it came out during my sophomore year of high school.

Fast forward to last week as I was walking around Target, and in the music section I saw “Now That’s What I Call Music, Volume 60”.

SIXTY?!?  Seriously?!??  WTH.  Talk about instantly making me feel old.

So just for fun, I thought I’d compare the lists between the two CDs – my first purchase in 1999 and the latest one released in Nov 2016.

  1. …Baby One More Time – Britney Spears
  2. You Get What You Give – New Radicals
  3. Millennium – Robbie Williams
  4. Closing Time – Semisonic

  6. My Favorite Mistake – Sheryl Crow
  7. Praise You (Radio Edit) – Fatboy Slim
  8. I Think I’m Paranoid – Garbage

  16. I’ll Never Break Your Heart – Backstreet Boys
  17. Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) (Edit) – Jay-Z

One thought on “Volume WHAT?!?

  1. At the Wal-Mart in Newburgh, there is a big bin of CDs for $5. I bought a 2 CD set – Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Songs include (listing only some, not all)

    Marvin Gaye – I heard it through the grapevine

    Everly Brothers – Wake up little Suzy

    James Brown – I feel good

    Buddy Holly – It’s so easy

    Richie Valens – La Bamba

    The Troggs – Wild Thing

    Jan & Dean – Surf city

    Roy Orbison – Only the Lonely

    Good stuff (at least for my generation)!!
