Our friend Mark put this amazing compilation album together.[youtube]qARptZ83dGU[/youtube]
It's out this week and the idea of the 57-song blowout is that it's a celebration of the pop explosion that happened in the years between 'Wannabe' and Girls Aloud. It's a real "from the sublime to the ridiculous" package and it's hard to believe some of it ever happened (HELLO 911 COVERING 'A LITTLE BIT MORE'), but any compilation that starts with the Spice Girls and ends with Lolly and Vanilla is alright by us.
They're throwing 20 copies at a Popjustice competition and we thought that rather than have twenty people win a copy each, we'd do a competition for one person to win twenty copies.
There are two reasons for this.
1. We know that a good proportion of Popjustice readers will want to give this album to everyone they know for Christmas.
2. It saves on packaging, a concern facing us all as we look for new ways to help preserve what is left of our precious environment.
To win the 20 copies, send an email to [email protected] — put 'Poptastic' in the subject line and in the main body tell us which song on the album (full tracklisting here) brings back the best or worst memory. Please feel free to go into heavy detail. We'll pick a winner on Thursday afternoon.
NB: 'Cleopatra's Theme' hasn't aged very well. :(
