Now That’s What I Call Music 10

At last! The double CD release matches the vinyl / audio cassette version.

Some great tracks abide here, it’s perhaps the strongest Now compilation of them all – in my humble opinion.

I think there’s only the obligatory Cliff Richard track that anyone could take offence at.  Oh and perhaps Curiosity Killed the Cat. What was his name… ah yes, Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot.  Sorry mate, but not my cup of tea at all.  Having said that, I did buy one of their singles – Down to Earth.  Perhaps if he’d changed his name to Ben Parrot he and the band may have had wider appeal?  Yes, I know it’s un perroquet, that’s not the point…  (You know, when you’re in a hole, the best plan is to stop digging.  Perhaps that’s what I’ll do now…)

*NB the actual title of this track does away with the indefinite article ‘a’.  The boys and girls at Now were being a little over generous. OK, OK I know. But humour me please, eh?
