NOW MUSIC RETURNS WITH THE RELEASE OF NOW 100 HITS 80s NO.1s TO CELEBRATE THIS YEARS 80s THEMED NATIONAL ALBUM DAY

Release Date: 9th October 2020
NOW 100 Hits 80s No.1s,

The 80s, the decade that just keeps on giving, a decade that took us all the way to Club Tropicana and bought us Back To Life and on top of that birthed NOW That’s What I Call Music! in 1983, the greatest compilation on the planet.

Even now, the Nation just can’t keep their ears away from a bit of 80s nostalgia, so to recognise the UK’s favourite musical decade, the 80s will be the theme for National Album Day on Saturday 10th October. To celebrate, NOW That’s What I Call Music is bringing you the biggest 80s hits in its upcoming compilation; 100 number 1 80s singles you can singalong to without having to detangle your cassette tape.

With big power tracks from the likes of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), Survivor’s Eye Of The Tiger and Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven Is A Place On Earth to electronic classics such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s Relax, Blackbox’s Ride On Time and pop classics including Jennifer Rush’s The Power Of Love, Bucks Fizz’s Making Your Mind Up and Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon, this compilation showcases the very best of 80s.

So, rather than relive the days of Ceefax, mullets and Dynasty, NOW Music will transport you back to your favourite moments in time and provide you with the soundtrack to create new memories.

A spokesperson for National Album Day, which takes place on 10th October and this year celebrates the albums of the Eighties, said: “The Eighties were a musically-rich decade, brilliantly captured by the NOW compilations that were so ground-breaking at the time. Now…That’s What I Call Music has held the public’s imagination ever since as an iconic part of our music heritage, and we are delighted that NOW100 Hits 80s No.1’s is being released to coincide with National Album Day.”

Peter Duckworth, Managing Director of NOW Music said: “The eighties truly is the Nation’s favourite decade and a favourite for the NOW team. NOW is very excited to be able to support National Album Day with this compilation, with one hundred of the top eighties hits there really is something for everyone to enjoy. The eighties had everything from uplifting dance numbers to classic power ballads and we hope that this album might just lift the nation’s spirits.”
