On Feb. 8, we get not only the 1,285th edition of “Now That’s What I Call Music!” (actually, it’s No. 37), but a new companion title, “Now That’s What I Call the Modern Songbook,” which features adult contemporary hits and titles that weren’t solid radio hits, but the labels hope you’ll want anyway.
This quarter’s “Now That’s What I Call Music” includes major hits from Eminem, Bruno Mars, Pink and more. The developing artists on the collection are Greyson Chance, whom you will recall, is signed to Lady Gaga’s label.
The “Modern Songbook,” includes such “newclassics,” as the label describes them (we think that’s really reaching, plus it’s an oxymoron), as Train’s “Hey Soul Sister” and Colbie Caillat’s “Bubbly,” which is neither new, nor a classic. Okay, we’ll admit we woke on the wrong side of the bed today and just provide the track listing for the two albums below.
