Dad with his “NOW!” CD.image

Okay, I will admit that I have listened to “Now” CD’s.  I have never bought any, but my sister use to buy them.  Even my dad has bought one.  I guess they are alright, but why are they so popular?  I assume it is because you have the most popular songs on one CD.  However, with technology the way it is today most music listeners could download the songs they like and create a playlist themselves. Now! is mostly for people whom music isn’t a big priority, as well as for tween-aged kids who are just getting into music. It takes time to search, deal with downloads and not everyone wants to bother with that.  They must still be popular because four time a year 500,000 to 700,000 are being sold.  Wonder what artists will be show cased this time?
