Song: Now That’s What I Call Music
Country of origin: UK
An official mix-tape. What a great idea. These tri-annual compilations have been going strong since 1983 and are a staple of the UK music scene. The original deal for the first one was actually negotiated on board Richard Branson’s boat house in London. The series, now referred to generally as just ‘Now!’, is in its 87th incarnation (as of May 2014). The one pictured to the right is Now 3 from 1984.
