I did include it on Paul’s Forgotten ’80s – a Mixcloud set which you may have already seen – link is https://apopfansdream. e. Madonna, Prince, David Bowie), the whole point is to gather up the tracks that Now cannot or will not licence. One I particularly enjoyed on a TOTP 40th anniversary rewatch recently was Tantalise by Jimmy the Hoover. For example Top of the Pops by the Rezillos almost always uses the album track instead of the single.

sympathises with Colonel Abrahams’ predicament in the legendary ‘Trapped’, and says “I’m not sure” to The Smiths‘ questioning ‘How Soon Is Now’. Sting’s excellent ‘If You Love Somebody Set Them Free’ is on here, although that wasn’t the big hit you might remember, while Midge Ure’s‘If I Was’ did, of course, get to number one in Britain. NOW is proud to present Yearbook Extra 1985 – 3 CDs featuring 60 more stellar pop moments from 1985. Now Yearbook ’85 – Extra will be released early next year and the various artists compilation offers 60 more hits from from 1985. Synth-pop from Thompson Twins, Dead Or Alive, Stephen Duffy, Howard Jones is here - and another collaboration between Gary Numan and Shakatak's Bill Sharpe on 'Change Your Mind' - before Elton John, Paul Young, and King, wrapping up with three exquisite soulful ballads from Billy Ocean, Jermaine Jackson, and Commodores.Unless another compilations happen in parallel to the Yearbook series in the future… After all, there are few artists who appear in other NOW compilations (like DM or Madonna), why wouldn’t they appear in a new series of compilations ? Luckily the recent Now Dance 80s set has more than made up for any slight disappointment in the yearbooks.

On that basis, it probably made sense for them to do a mixture of the five years rather than an individual disc for each year – given the dearth of tracks from 1980 and 1981. As per my update in the main post, I am going to re-jig my Extra Plus playlists on foot of this Final Chapter announcement but will hold off for a bit in case that has an Extra coming as well.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

Maybe it’s because those years (particularly 85) were great years for pop and even if there were another five extra editions for them, they’d still be missing some classics.

from The Smiths – setting the tone for a run of ‘Alternative’ hits including The Cure with ‘Close To Me’, ‘Duel’ from Propaganda, and ‘She Sells Sanctuary’ from The Cult. My Extra Plus 1983 playlist was created in December 2021 while Extra 1982 wasn’t released until March 2022. Sting’s excellent ‘If You Love Somebody Set Them Free’ is on here, although that wasn’t the big hit you might remember, while Midge Ure’s ‘If I Was’ did, of course, get to number one in Britain. I have also one question for you : Are you going to make a playlist for the “Now Yearbook ’80-’84 The Final Chapter”? More chart debuts from King, Simply Red, Fine Young Cannibals, and The Dream Academy lead toward the disc’s closing track from Strawberry Switchblade with the Pop classic ‘Since Yesterday’.

NOW is proud to present ‘Yearbook Extra 1985’ – 3 CDs featuring 60 more stellar pop moments from 1985.

On the other hand, I have plenty suggestions for More Extra Plus volumes for all years 1979-1984 so it probably does come down to what they can easily license.Their announcement says “As we move forward to the second half of the 1980s, and we were delighted with the response to the 1979 edition back in September. There will surely be a full public enquiry into how Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ DOESN’T end up on a compilation celebrating 1985 (especially one that that is released in 2022). Synth-Pop from Thompson Twins, Dead Or Alive, Stephen Duffy, Howard Jones is here– and another collaboration between Gary Numan and Shakatak’s Bill Sharpe on ‘Change Your Mind’ – before Elton John, Paul Young, and King, wrapping up with three exquisite soulful ballads from Billy Ocean, Jermaine Jackson, and Commodores. Not that they’re bad by any stretch but I think the 85 and 86 yearbooks (and extras) were a little bit disappointing, 85 especially. So yes – availability on Spotify is the primary criteria here and I have a strong preference for single mixes.
