HISTORY:

Now That's What I Call Music! (1983–present) (often shortened to Now!) is a series of various artists compilation albums released in the United Kingdom and Ireland by EMI. Spinoff series were later introduced in South Africa (1984) and many other countries worldwide, including the United States in 1998, and Israel in 1999. Since its launch in the UK in 1983, the series has amassed over 100 million album sales worldwide, and each volume always debut at Number 1 on the UK album chart.

CONTENT:

Now That’s What I Call Music 87 was released in UK on April 7, 2014, and debut at Number 1 on the UK album compilation chart, still No. 1 after 3 weeks. Although a song listing is included on Amazon.ca, I have compiled a more detailed listing (with chart position in US & UK, with personal comments), which is as follows:

Disc 1:
01 Happy – Pharrell Williams (US 1(10 & counting)/2014; AC 1/2014; ADULT POP: 1/2014; UK 1(3)/2014)*although Let It Go from Frozen earned the Oscar for Best Original Song, Happy definitely earns the hearts of pop music lovers; it is also an intermediate line dance, titled Clap Happy! A real workout!
02 My Love – Route 94, featuring Jess Glynne (UK 1/2014; SCOTLAND 1/2014)*non-album single, a rare treat here!
03 I’m A Freak – Enrique Iglesisas, featuring Pitbull (UK 4/2014)*his latest hit, El Perdidor is No. 1 on US Latin chart; the Bachata mix is a great line dance tune.
04 Hey Brother – Avicii (US 16/2013; UK 4/2013; SWEDEN 1/2013)*great follow-up to Wake Me Up!
05 Dark Horse – Katy Perry (US 1(4)/2014; UK 4/2014)*2nd No. 1 hit from her Prism album
06 Money On My Mind – Sam Smith (UK 1/2014)
07 Word Up!

Over all the collection of recent hits contains a reasonable collection. There are a number of what we term as fillers on this album the tracks that you just skip over if you get my meaning, that is why I give it only 4 stars......That about sum it up.....

If you like most of the now mixes then this one is worth buying.
I like the fact that you can also download it once the disc has been ordered.

I always believe the first Cd they have on now that's what i call music's are very popular and often all of my favourites. However, the second cd is generally filled with a load of songs no one has heard of or ones that have done terrible in the charts.
I'd pay for the first CD on here but not the second.

I have all the NOW collection since 2007, but lately they are not including all the hits you expect. Still it is a good list to play wherever you go or to keep for your historical records, as I do every time after the release of each new compilation.

First things first this is a fantastic CD and is the latest installment of the popular series, however just like most CD's in the series loads of songs i was expecting are mysteriously absent, in fact there are so many you could make a 3rd CD from them

1. Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne - Rather Be - The only No. 1 since Now 86 not to make the cut which is a shame because i really like this song and much prefer it to CD 1 Track 2 'My Love' (Which also features Jess Glynne) such a shame it missed out and this album doesn't really feel 'complete' without it as it would have been perfect for this album.

2. Jason Derulo - Trumpets - How this song didn't make it baffles me so as we had his previous singles 'The Other Side' and 'Talk Dirty' on Now 85 and Now 86 and it performed just as well in the charts, this is also Jason's first top 10 single not to feature on a 'Now' album.

3. Aloe Blacc - The Man - Again Now fail to get the song that reached No. 1 the day before the UK release date of the album on a Now!, will surely make Now 88.

4. Zedd featuring Hayley Williams - Stay the Night - Another song i really expected to make it as it reached No. 2 in the charts but just didn't, and it's not as though they couldn't include Hayley Williams as she has already appeared twice before as a featured artist on Now 77 on B.o.B.'s single 'Airplanes' and as part of Paramore on the much more recent Now 85 with their song 'Still into You'. Maybe they just couldn't get the rights to Zedd?

5. Shakira feat. Rihanna - Can't Remember to Forget You - Another song you'd really expect to make it but didn't as both artists have appeared on Now albums before and it peaked at #11, only just outside the top 10.

6. will.i.am feat.

As everyone knows, all the Now albums have quite a diverse mixture of well known tracks and some not so popular and this album is exactly the same, however I am not disappointed as there are more good tracks than mediocre.

Oh dear, who'd want to be a "Now That's What I Call Music!" compiler at this time of the year?

Traditionally, the Easter compilation is the weakest of the year's three releases. It's always reliant on pre-Christmas hits to add a bit of weight and padded out with blink and you'll have missed them minor hits from the start of the year. Unfortunately, it's the latter which make up the majority of this volume, with such a heavy reliance on faceless dance tracks that it looks more like a Clubland compilation than a Now! album. Aside from the cannon-fodder, there are just a few bona fide 2014 hits that demonstrated staying power beyond an early sales peak, so you've probably already forgotten how most of these tracks sound!

As ever, there's a handful of prominent absentees, the most notable being Clean Bandit's `Rather Be' which has already been licensed in other territories and, let's face it, Now 87 could really do with a hit like that on it! There are other surprise omissions from artists who have previously featured on the Now! series; e.g. Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Lily Allen, Christina Perri and, perhaps most surprisingly, Jason Derulo's `Trumpets' which has been one of 2014's most enduring hits so far.

Why they would chose to open Disc 2 with a minor novelty hit that didn't even make the Top 10, whilst one of the year's biggest hits is relegated to second place is just bizarre. It's also odd that they have included a Club Edit of the John Newman track rather than the Radio Mix.

Although the brand is being eroded by its expansion beyond the chronological hit collections, particularly since Sony took over, these volumes remain the cash cow of the series, so the good news for the label is that the album will sell, but few of the tracks on here will still be picking up airplay when Now 88 rolls around and, hopefully, a little more quality control will be exercised.
