Tracklisting & More Information

Since June 2021 we have presented five editions of the 'NOW - Yearbook' series that span the first half of the 1980s. NOW Music is proud to present the another edition to our 'Yearbook' family: 'NOW - Yearbook 1979'. With a re-imagined look that reflects the era, 85 tracks over 4-CDs celebrate a truly spectacular year of chart magic. Kicking off with one of Queen's most popular songs 'Don't Stop Me Now', Disc 1 includes #1's from The Police, The Boomtown Rats and Ian Dury & The Blockheads. Disc 2 opens with three Ska/Pop crossover hits from Madness, The Selecter and The Specials, before taking in some Classic Rock including Meat Loaf, Electric Light Orchestra and the collaboration between Gary Moore and Phil Lynott. Next up is an astonishing run of New Wave and Post-Punk hits including Squeeze, The Jam, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, The Cure and Siouxsie And The Banshees. Four of 1979s most beautiful songs open Disc 3 from ABBA with 'Chiquitita', 'Every Day Hurts' from Sad Cafe, Elton John's 'Song For Guy', and the best-selling single of the year: 'Bright Eyes' by Art Garfunkel, and finishes with one of the most influential singles of all time: 'Rapper's Delight' from The Sugarhill Gang. The final disc in this collection features four more of the year's #1s and opens with one of them - Cliff Richard's 'We Don't Talk Anymore', before further pop brilliance from Wings, Olivia Newton-John, Neil Diamond, Suzi Quatro and Boney M.. Smooth Soul ballads from Commodores, Peaches & Herb and The Three Degrees follow, as does a Country Pop #1 from Dr. Hook. The disc concludes with three Synth-Pop smashes that pointed the way to the upcoming decade - 'Pop Muzik' from M, and the two final #1s featured: 'Are Friends Electric?' and closing with 'Video Killed The Radio Star' by The Buggles. 'NOW - Yearbook 1979' - A celebration of the diversity of the charts, and the creative brilliance of the year in pop.
