Putting a twist on music + the professional life

#ThrowbackAlbum 4.2.15 | "The Ultimate 'Now That's What I Call Music!' CD Showdown" Kickoff

#ThrowbackAlbumDrew BoehmkerComment

By this point, the madness of March has worn off; your bracket has been busted, you’ve seen enough basketball (this side of One Tree Hill, at least) to last you a lifetime, and your bank account is seriously regretting your attempts to drown your sorrows after your home team lost it all in a buzzer beater.

… Or, if you’re like me, you didn’t care too much about the whole basketball thing to begin with.

Yet no matter which side you fall on, there’s no denying that brackets are F-U-N. Seriously—I fill one out each year in spite of the fact that I mostly pick the teams with recognizable names or, more likely, the coolest mascots.

With that in mind, over the next few weeks I’ll be taking a break from your usually scheduled #ThrowbackAlbum posts for a new project that I am going to be launching in this column:


That’s right, I’ll be hosting a March Madness-style elimination bracket of all your favorite Now CDs from yesteryear (or at least, the ones up until the series stopped being relevant), complete with input from RPM readers just like you to determine which Now CDs are the biggest hits, which are the biggest misses, and ultimately what the single best installment of this ICONIC album franchise is.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks! Already have something to say on the topic? Feel free to leave a comment or tweet @TwistonPR or @IfUSeekDrew with suggestions for which Now CD you think will (or should) claim the title.
