NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL POWER BALLADS / VARIOUS
NOW That's What I Call Music! Presents 'NOW That's What I Call Power Ballads: Total Eclipse Of The Heart'. More than 70 epic anthems across 4 CDs, demanding a loud sing-a-long and lots of accompanying air guitar! Kicking off with the beautiful 'Who Wants To Live Forever'. The '80s big-hitters continue with The Police, Foreigner, Robert Plant, John Mellencamp. Disc Two opens with the inspiration for our subtitle, 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' from Bonnie Tyler, and Jim Steinman's epic production continues with Celine Dion's 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now'. Cher, Marillion, ZZ Top, Billy Idol and Pat Benatar all follow, and we've included Laura Branigan's huge vocal take on 'Power Of Love'. Our third disc begins with timeless '70s soft-rock ballads. 'Tiny Dancer' from Elton John, 'Telephone Line' from Electric Light Orchestra and Thin Lizzy's 'Whiskey In The Jar' kick off the ultimate sing-a-long, with all-time classics from Harry Nilsson, Billy Joel, Eric Carmen, Joan Armatrading, and the Bruce Springsteen penned 'Because The Night' from Patti Smith to follow. More '80s favourites from Peter Cetera, Bryan Ferry, Steve Winwood, T'Pau and Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes' 'Up Where We Belong' bring this disc to a close. The final disc opens with a run of stellar contemporary classics, 'I'll Stand By You' from Pretenders, U2's 'With Or Without You' and 'Paradise' from Coldplay lead in to 'Angels' from Robbie Williams, plus well-loved smashes from Roxette and Maria McKee. Huge airplay tracks from the '90s & '00s round off the collection including defining songs from Train, The Calling, Lenny Kravitz, 4 Non Blondes and Lonestar.
