Title - 'Now 42: That's What I Call Music' (EMI)
Artist - Various
Kelly Clarkson's massive radio hit 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' starts this CD off brilliantly, with the monster dancefloor smash from Flo Rida 'Good Feeling' following suit. Karmin's 'Brokenhearted' (from their HELLO EP) showcases the pop music duo perfectly, before the new uk boy band sensation One Direction springs forth with 'What Makes You Beautiful.'
France's David Guetta, a man who belongs to the sparkling wave of DJs who combine Daft Punk's sleek house music with a pinch of electroclash's punch turns his attention to the you-either-love-her-or-hate-her Nicki Minaj on the pulsating dancefloor hit 'Turn Me On,' before the addictive 'Feel So Close' from Scottish recording artist Calvin Harris follows thereafter.
Chris Brown's 'Turn Up The Music' is next with 'We Run The Night' (Feat. Pitbull) from Australian DJ and recording artist Havana Brown, 'Sorry For Party Rocking' from LMFAO and 'Give Me All Your Luvin' (Feat. Nicki Minaj And M.I.A.) from the one, the only Madonna strikes its musical pose. 'Get Yourself Back Home' (Feat. Neon Hitch) from Gym Class Heroes is next, with the distinctive vocal tones of Bruno Mars and his hit 'It Will Rain' following.
The highly-addictive radio hit 'Somebody That I Used To Know' (Feat. Kimbra) from Gotye (pronounced "go-ti-yay" or "Gauthier") - the alias of Australian electronic pop trickster Wally de Backer - is followed by Train's 'Drive By,' Eric Church's let's-name-as-many-of-his-songs-as-possible-in-the-lyrics 'Springsteen,' and Taylor Swift's laid back ballad 'Ours.'
The album then rounds off, as is its usual style with a selection of What's next songs from Up and Coming Artists. First up is Zach Heckendorf's 'All The Right Places,' 'Free' from Graffiti6, and then 'Run Dat Back' from Jadagrace and finally Labrinth's 'Earthquake' (Feat. Busta Rhymes)'
