Quite a rounded selection-although some great songs left out
on 15 December 1999
I recently bought Music of the Millennium, getting into the swing of things with January 1st 2000 rapidly approaching,and generally enjoyed it. It had a wide range of artists from David Bowie, to Cher, to John Lennon with his song of the Century...'Imagine', as well as those bad boys of pop Oasis, with their great hit 'Wonderwall.' I wish there had been no Robbie Williams songs on this compilation, especially singing his rather corny 'Millennium', now if it had been 'Angels' I could have understood it being included. I appreciate it must have been hard for those who compiled these two CDs to choose just 40 songs out of the thousands recorded over the years, but leaving out great artists like Eurythmics, Stevie Wonder etc is just not acceptable. And really it only covers the last 40 years, music before that, it seems, didn't exist. Music of the Millennium is a welcome addition to my growing CD collection, but it could have been better.
