NOW is proud to present 60 more essential gems from the stellar Pop year of 1986 – NOW – Yearbook Extra 1986.

CD1 kicks off with a huge Queen classic ‘A Kind Of Magic’, Eurythmics’ ‘When Tomorrow Comes’, the lead single from their ‘Revenge’ album, and smash hits from The Bangles and a-ha. Sophisticated Pop from Sade, Bryan Ferry, and Sting follows and some of the greatest vocalists of the era are up next including Patti Labelle, Tina Turner, and Anita Baker with the timeless ‘Sweet Love’. Hits from Five Star, Paul Young, and Stan Ridgway are joined by movie tracks from The Style Council, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and ‘Left Of Center’ - the collaboration between Suzanne Vega and Joe Jackson, plus the title track ‘Graceland’ from Paul Simon’s 1986 best-seller.

Bon Jovi open Disc 2 with their Rock smash ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’, followed by Kenny Loggins’ ‘Top Gun’ anthem ‘Danger Zone’, alongside huge tracks from Spandau Ballet, Robert Palmer, Simple Minds, and Julian Cope, before some classic Power Pop from Cutting Crew, ZZ Top, and Mr. Mister. Pure Pop hits from Modern Talking, Samantha Fox, Elton John, and Jennifer Rush follow before the disc closes with timeless ‘The Way It Is’ from Bruce Hornsby & The Range.

The final CD begins with a run of fantastic Indie and Synth-Pop smashes including The Housemartins, The Smiths, New Order, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Dead Or Alive, and Falco’s ‘Vienna Calling’. Debut hits from Latin Quarter and Sly Fox follow, plus ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ - a big hit on re-release for Grace Jones. Soul music legend James Brown scored a big hit with ‘Living In America’, and Jellybean, Cherrelle & Alexander O’Neal, and The S.O.S Band enjoyed three of the year’s biggest Dance tracks. The collection winds down with soulful ballads from Atlantic Starr, Billy Ocean and Freddie Jackson before signing off with one of the greatest tracks of all-time; ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ from Marvin Gaye – a smash hit again 18 years after it originally hit #1 after sound-tracking an ad campaign.
