NOW! That's What I Call A Tune!

As regular readers will know, I recently reached the end of my "Not an A-Z of my CDs" series, which featured tracks I like but don't actually own. Having had a couple of weeks to think about an alternative, here is the first in what I anticipate will be a long-running series.

The concept of NOW! That's What I Call A Tune is simple - each week I will select and feature a track from an album in the NOW! That's What I Call Music series, starting with the original from 1983 and going all the way to  what I reckon will be number 84 by the time I catch up in around a year and a half!

As a bonus treat for this first entry, I also include an advert for the first album:

You can browse all the adverts here.

Having almost chosen UB40's Red Red Wine or The Cure's The Lovecats, I've chosen Paul Young with "Wherever I Lay My Hat (That's My Home)...

Hope you enjoyed!

What a splendid idea! Really looking forward to your future posts - which should only require minimal effort to keep up with - and to discovering tracks which had either passed me by or been forgotten.

I don't remember seeing this video before, P.Y. looking very cherub-faced and hardly out of school, though the track is, of course, well known by everybody. (Should be particularly appreciated by Stephen C. who, as he told us, bumped into said artiste not long ago.)
