THIS TUNE'S GONNA RUIN YOU! THE NOW RATE. #115 | The Popjustice Forum


Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by Spiral, Sep 11, 2017.

    Welcome to the rate to end all niche-1998-2001-themed-rates! I'm Spiral and I'll be hosting this Popstastic Rate

    For people who don't know what this Rate is about, the NOW That's What I Call Music series is a set of albums that group up a collection of chart hits and spread them over two discs. The UK editions have been going strong since 1983 and will be reaching NOW 100 next year. They're a great time capsule of Pop music and contain big hits which appear mostly on disc 1 and pop gems which fill up the spaces on Disc 2.


    -Rate every single song... It's a task, but it'll be worth it
    -Rate each song between 0-10 (No half points allowed, I can't do math)
    -You are allowed to give an 11 to one song from each album (that includes Disc 1 & 2)
    -If you find time, add some commentary for each NOW album, talk about songs you love/hate, songs you wanted on them, the cover, and other things
    -Don't feel bad if you end up giving a lot of tracks 0's. The NOWs during this era were notoriously bad for relying on Alternative/Rock, Dance, and rubbish Pop to reach a 40 song album quota. So let's get rid of the rubbish and get on to the main rate.

  4. Excellent.

    Any chance of a Spotify playlist?

    Looking forward to listening to No Tengo Dinero for the first time in about fifteen years. How could this go wrong?

  5. This seems like a perfect chance to make a few rediscoveries although some sort of playlist would be helpful.
  6. Oh wow, is this actually happening?! Great.

  7. And here I was wondering if the one from PJOPS had gotten some kind of 90s Eurodance remix!

    This is a lot of songs. But then, a lot of them are songs I know and everybody knows anyway. Except for the you-had-to-be-British ones, but I'm going to try. I see my 11 already!

  8. NOW41 always reminds me of feeling sick. I was hospitalised with a vicious bout of food poisoning the day I bought it.

  9. Must have been Fat Les' 'Vindaloo' from NOW40. It made me feel ill.

  10. Oh wow. So many 10s.

    Hope I can make it as I didnot expect a deadline within 3 weeks. You know you are allowed to have up till 6 weeks with a rate containing so many songs @Spiral.
  11. Having realised just how many songs there are, I agree. Nine Now! albums is a lot for three weeks.

    (EDIT: Actually, given that the PJ's Favorites rate is due on October 1 and I'm already worrying about rating 60 songs for that, I think I'll bail on this one. The process of rating 18 discs of material is more than I can withstand, even if it does include some absolute classics. Sorry!)

    I'M SO READY. Now 46 was the first one I ever got and I have so many memories from it. An extension would be helpful though, just to ensure you get loads of votes.

  13. Do not want to interfere too much but is it an idea to rate it per album as we got one 11 anyway from it? The first one (still 40 tracks) is do-able in 3 weeks.

  14. I found a YouTube playlist for NOW 40 which is missing a couple of the tracks.

    Missing Tracks:

  15. At work at the moment guys. I'll get everything sorted when I get back x

    I've quickly done a first draft of all my scores for these, and there are so many 10s but SO MANY duds. Far too much Boyzone.
  17. NOW 41 Playlist:

    Missing Tracks Part 1:

  18. Missing Tracks Part 2:

  19. Why a deadline so soon? There are a lot of songs and you didn't provide any playlist, NOW doesn't exist in my region. I'm gonna need a lot of time just to find and compile all these songs. Could we please have at least 1 month?
    How many songs are there? Playlists are helpful. I love rubbish.

  20. For context, the Pet Shop Boys (Part I) rate, which started last week, has a five-and-a-half-week voting period for 60 songs.

    This rate has 417 songs, which is almost seven times that number, and less than three weeks to do that in.
