      The best hits from Stock Aitken and Waterman

      I saw this CD advertised ages ago on the TV and though it sounded quiet good as there are a lot of songs on from my childhood but soon forgot about it. I again stumbled upon it in Tesco last week when I was looking for another CD and decided to treat my hubby to it as he remembers a lot more of the artists than I do.

      The CD comes on 3 discs and contains 48 songs, I am not going to go through each song and review them individually as this review would go on forever, I will just list the tracks for you.

      CD 1

      1. Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give you Up
      2. Bananarama - Venus
      3. Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Round (Like a record)

      8. Sinitta - Toy Boy
      9. Big Fun - Blame It On The Boogie
      10. Donna Summer - This Time I Know It's For Real
      11. Lonnie Gordon - Happenin' All Over Again
      12. Brother Beyond - The harder I Try
      13. Sonia - You'll Never Stop me Loving You
      14. The Reynolds Girls - I'd Rather Jack
      15. Samantha Fox - Nothing's Gonna Stop me Now
      16. Cliff Richard - I just Don't Have the Heart

      Well this album just oozes cheese! When I looked and read the back cover of the CD case where the track lists can be found I was finding I did not recognise a lot of the names of the artists but the song titles were very familiar. As we started playing the CD in the car the tracks just instantly came back to me.

      I will openly admit here (please don't think any less of me!!!) I was a Jason Donovan fan when I was a lot younger and when his songs came on I was finding I could remember all of the words to them and they bought back some great memories for me.

      My hubby found he could remember a lot more of the songs than me as he is 10 years older than me and when he would be starting to go to ten clubs where these songs were being played and dancing to them there I would e the one at home dancing in my bedroom, yes with a hairbrush singing along.

      The way the tracks has been put together just shows the clear extent of the hits which Stick Aitken and Waterman have achieved, yes each of the songs are all catching pop records but they really did find a niche in the market and definitely filled it with all of the above.

      I am sure that each and everyone of us will know a few of the songs on the CD's and they will bring back some good memories for all.

      The cover of the CD is white and has a gold diamond in the middle with a few pictures of some of their artists on and in the top left hand corner is the CD title. The back cover is also white and has the three track lists printed in small gold lettering. Inside the CD case is a small booklet which has the song details, the artists and the running times for all the featured songs.

      The CD was produced in 2005 by Sony BMG Music Entertainment. I know that it has also been advertised on the television recently as I certainly would not remember 3 year old adverts for this CD. I did pay the bargain price of £4 from Tesco for my copy so do shop around for a Bargain.

      I do recommend this CD even if it is just for the cheese factor as it will bring back some memories for us all.
