Dear Music Appreciators,

If you don't already know most of these songs, then welcome to the world of popular music during the second decade of the twenty-first century. What kind of music is popular these days you ask? Well, it's mostly big, thumping, tricked-out electro pop songs performed by sexed up solo acts (just five out of the twenty tracks are from a "band" in the traditional sense of the word). These are songs primarily about relationships, self-affirmation, and sex delivered in a top forty style that is great for dancing, working out, or driving fast.

But this collection isn't purely corporate hit machine pop music - refreshing diversions from the typical sounding, thumping hit pop songs include "Lights," "Too Close," Midnight City," "Drunk On You," "Here's to Us," and "My Oh My." It's also notable that this collection includes contributions from a country star, a few rock bands, and a number of singer-songwriter types.

If you listen regularly to top forty type radio stations, then whether you know it or not you will already be familiar with most of the tracks here. Although every track here has appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, just two have made it all the way to number one.

For those who are interested, here are some details about the origin of each song. Single release dates are not considered, except where a studio album has not been released yet.

1. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen - from the studio album (EP) CURIOSITY released on 02/14/12
2. "Part of Me" - Katy Perry - from the studio album TEENAGE DREAM: THE COMPLETE CONFECTION released on 03/26/12
3. "Payphone" - Maroon 5 - from the studio album OVEREXPOSED released on 06/26/12
4. "Titanium (feat.

As always, this is a great sampler of today's music and of course there's something for everyone here. It features some newcomers such as Carly Rae Jepsen, M83 and Alex Clare along with familiar names like Maroon 5, Usher and Katy Perry among others and a few of the tracks here are still currently climbing the charts. The last four tracks are fine but again time will tell if any of them break through. An enjoyable collection overall.

Bought this CD because I recognized most of the song titles on it. I hate buying a CD for 1 song and finding out I don't care for the other 13 or so.

The popular Now series : That's What I Call Music is back with probably the most musically accessible compilation recently in 'Now 43' : wonderful recent popular (pop) hits including dance hits like the melodical "Titanium" by David Guetta featuring Sia, R 'n B, some rap/hip hop like "Back In Time" by Pitbull (song from the movie MEN IN BLACK 3) & the delightful only one country hit "Drunk On You" by Luke Bryan. The Now series have country music & rock series too which may explain less of these genre inclusions recently. There is also much less rap/hip hop in this compilation as compared to 'Now 42 : That's What I Call Music' which had mixed bag of appreciation by fans. This new compilation 'Now 43 : That's What I Call Music" (20 tracks including 4 bonus tracks) seems to have hit the right chord with the fans as it's certainly getting well received : it has great 'middle of the road' pop songs. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepson (pop track with wonderful melody & vocals), "Payphone" by Maroon 5 (incredible melody & great vocals by Adam Levine. This is my favourite track from this great compilation CD), "Give Your Heart A Break" by Demi Lovato (another wonderful pop track with an infectious melody), "Drunk On You" by Luke Bryan (great country hit) & "Here's To Us" by Tristan Prettyman (bonus track, beautiful track at that).

On overall, recent pop hits (2011 & 2012 chart toppers) are well represented in this new compilation (mainly pop & dance hits) that should thrill fans now all in one CD. A highly recommended CD listening.

This is a good volume. Lots of song I like from the radio and my CD plays much clearer than the radio, plus I don't have to listen to people talk about nonsense and I can choose the song I want to listen to. My only complaint really is that I was disappointed that the Maroon 5 song "Payphone" didn't have Wiz Kahlifa's verse. I know it didn't list his name, as a previous NOW listed Lil Jon and STILL left him out of the song, but the radio plays his verse and I just expected to hear it. I'm still not a fan of "NOW WHAT'S NEXT". I still think it's a way to rip people off by giving you less good current songs but what can you do? I suppose it's good for the artists since lots of people will hear their songs, but I wonder how many of them actually make it big afterwards? In short, purchase this album if you, like me, collect the NOW series (even the horrible ones - however, I only collect the numerical ones. I do not collect spin off's such as NOW #1s.) or you really like the songs on the radio right now and don't want to buy individual albums. I've grown tired of individual albums. I can't listen to one artist that long, especially in the car where I play most of my CDs. I suppose there are always MP3 downloads, but I am still stuck in the past listening to CDs.

Now 43 predictions?
Sonuvab, that's it! Wow, never thought to watch Best Buy for the listing...

Much stronger list than Now 42. Surprised and disappointed that We Are Young never made a CD, and they should have done Wide Awake over Part of Me, but other than that, good choices. I LOVE Midnight City, but never... Read More
