NOW 100 Hits: Forgotten 80s (Now That's What I Call Music LLP)



昨年1983年の『Vol.1』から35年かかって100枚目のリリースを達成したイギリスの人気シリーズ『Now That's What I Call Music』。それを記念してかこのところ『NOW 100 Hits』というボックスが何種類かリリースされており、こちらのテーマは“忘れられた80sヒッツ”。とはいえ別に重箱の隅をつつくようなマイナーヒットがてんこ盛り、という訳ではなく、収録されている100曲の大半はUKチャートのTOP10入りを果たしたものばかり。大物アーティストの作品だが代表曲には挙げられない曲や、当時大ヒットを記録したがアーティスト自体この30年ほど忘れられているような曲が多数収録されている。リアルタイムでUKチャートを追っていた方にとっては、この100曲は“基本”なのだろうか。どっぷりUS派だった僕は、是非ともご意見を伺いたい。
