I think I've had now 16 since 1992. I know that now 57 is out, but I haven't picked it up. Honestly I only get it these days out of tradition rather than anything else.

I cant see myself buying any Now cd. By the time the cd comes out, i am trying to avoid all the songs on it. Plus, they're edited.

Why would you buy a CD where you only like 5 out of 20 songs? Why not just buy those 5 songs online or something?

I was really into the Now's but it's becoming ridiculous. Just about all of the songs that I want I own, the rest can be downloaded (as I've been told many, many times by my brother). I decided I'd stop the addiction at Now 15.

Ok, there are about 5 songs on there I want too. Maybe I'll stop at Now 20. You see, it's an addiction really.

No, I'm sure that a lot of twelve year-old girls will be buying it, too.

I will buy it as well even if I have some of the tracks. I've always enjoyed the NOW cd's.

Ha ha.

We're talking about the North American 'Now' series here.... we finally started our own 'Now' a decade+ after you guys.

And unlike the Euro ones, ours are only 1 disc

Not a single song I like on there. I've never bought any of these Now CDs. I hate pop, rap, and R&B so that makes 3/4ths of the CDs useless to me, and I probably already have the albums with any of the rock/alternative songs I like that occasionally are on one of these.

Why don't you just turn on the radio at any given time? I don't understand why people buy NOW cd's. Ya after hearing songs that are played on the radio every 15 min I wanna run out and buy a CD full of them!

You sound exactly like my brother I had to check the username to see if it was him. Well, there really isn't an excuse to buy the Now's but I like to anyways.

It's about the same as the people who call in to a radio station to request a song that gets played every 20 minutes anyway. Morons...

I didn't know radio stations every take requests anymore. They already have a pre-set list of Now-ish that they only play. But if I want to hear Dip it low three times in a row I can buy Now 16.
