The release of Now 100 has today brought home to people who grew up in the 80s and 90s the terrifying way time and life is slipping them by.
Now That’s What I Call Music, which launched in 1983, is a regular compilation of popular music that has somehow reached 100 releases – utterly dumbfounding people who are still convinced they are, at some level, still only seventeen years old.
However, ageing fans have looked at the latest release and discovered they have no idea who any of the artists are and they’ve never heard any of the songs.
“But I bought Now when I was younger,” said Simone Williams from Chester.
“It was only Now Fifteen or Sixteen last time I looked.
“What the hell happened? Where did the time go?
“I still listen to the one from 1993 with 2 Unlimited and Ordinary World by Duran Duran on it in the car. I thought people would hear it and think I was cool and hip and up to date with the kids.
“Oh, Christ. I’ll be buying Werthers Originals next.”
The CD is expected to sell well to middle-aged people desperate to cling to their lost youth as people under 30 have no idea what a CD is any more, much to your horror.
