Oh the Eighties; dodgy mullet memories, perms perfect for poodles and enough Lycra to make Mr Motivator blush. Although there were parts of the Eighties we’d prefer to forget, there is no denying it was the ultimate decade for pop music, it even gave us the NOW Music compilation series in 1983. Following on from their album NOW Forgotten 80s, which earlier this year shone a light on all those amazing tracks we didn’t even realise we missed, NOW 100 Hits Even More Forgotten 80s is here to delve even deeper into the earworms of the 80s, with a healthy dose of nostalgia mixed in.

Tracks include queen of the decade Kim Wilde’s Chequered Love to Aussie favourite Jason Donavon’s Sealed With A Kiss to everybody’s favourite girl group Bananarama’s Nathan Jones, through to classic feel-good dance tracks I Can Make You Feel Good by Shalamar and Mama Used to Say by Junior.

So, whether you were dancing in your bedroom with a hairbrush in hand, singing along to your favourite heartthrobs or down at the disco pulling out the running man then NOW Music has something for you. With an almighty 100 tracks, this compilation will have you grooving from dusk until dawn, reliving your memories and creating new ones, proving the Eighties really is the decade to beat.

And if you’re looking for even more of an 80s experience, Now That’s What I Call Music Live 80s will be touring across the UK so you can sing, dance and party along to all your favourite hits in a live concert. Presented by Gary Davies and Mark Goodier and performed by a powerhouse live band with sensational singers Sandy Grigelis, Paige Cook and Shellyann, this will be a night you won’t forget.
