NOW That's What I Call Music! announces NOW #1s to mark 70 years of the Official Singles Chart

Featuring chart-topping tracks from across the last 70 years, this is the ultimate compilation for pop fans of all ages.

Celebrate 70 years of the Official Singles Chart with NOW #1s – five CDs featuring 100 of the greatest Number 1 singles of all time.

The collection kicks off in style with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, before heading into chart-topping hits from the 70s including from Paul McCartney & Wings and The Beach Boys, into classic Rock'n'Roll from Elvis Presley, followed by 80s classics from The Police, The Human League and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Not to mention iconic movie soundtracks from Celine Dion and Whitney Houston.

It's not all 70s-90s throwbacks though, as Now #1s also features lots of recent hits too from the likes of Olivia Rodrigo, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and more.
