Is that the series where the 10 year olds sing about "see you in the club" and other inane lyrics that make no sense? Yeah, it should have died years ago.

While I find little to be of value in most of the pop music produced during the last couple decades, I have no vested interest or personal desire to see this series end.

I thought it already did...

The new trend is to take popular bands from when the parents were young and obliterate them by turning them into lullabies. Like this Slayer one. Because nothing says "go to sleep my precious child" than a song about Ed Gein making face masks from his victims.

To be fair that's not any worse than how most of our "fairy tales" originated.

My brother's gonna be devastated. They're his go-to requests for Christmas/Birthday presents.

Dude's mentally disabled, but hey, you get a target audience, you try to keep it.

I bought Now That's What I Call Music Christmas album a few years ago, and it's pretty darn good.

/well, I admit it was actually a double album: one of the classics and one of current pop stars singing their own, new Christmas songs, but I think I threw the second disc away after listening to it once

My neice and nephew loved these when they were kids, probably until about the age of 12.

its broad brush gave a snapshot of the then music scene, meaning sundry baggy bands (hello, Candy Flip) rubbed shoulders with ace, early '90s pop (Beats International, Adamski), rave (Orbital

Funny, I'm seeing Orbital live this very evening!

The Now! comps became redundant as soon as individual tracks were available inside 10 seconds and for free (or extremely cheap for music). They served a function prior to Napster but now they're just playlists on a coaster.

If Now! discs were available in genres updated once every year / other year they'd have some value as the creators would need to find artists to fill the gaps (and offer better exposure to those who need it) but as Pop comps they're useless as 'pop' recycles itself several times a year.

I love the NTWICM series - it;s a great way to collect pop music without having to buy the damn full albums or singles.

As a joke one of the owners of my local pub loaded the juke box with nothing but these albums for a week. I managed to find all of them. Pissed off the regulars
