With Easter around the corner, we take a look at three CDs that is perfect for music lovers - young and old. Some of the CDs will have you rocking to nostalgic pop and rock and others are just pure club music pleasure.
Various - 5FM's Fresh Drive Presents - Cheese of the Day
If you are one of those people who can't wait for 5FM's Cheese Of The Day track on the DJ Fresh show, then this CD is a gem! The Cheese of the Day is one of the most popular and successful features on 5FM’s Fresh Drive. The feature runs every afternoon from 17:35pm and classic “cheesy” (70’s, 80’s, 90’s & dance) tracks are played for listeners to “sing along in the traffic”. This 3 CD set were chosen by 5FM listeners and it's great fun CD of songs from way back then (actually, some of the songs were mega hits when I was at school...oops, think I just gave my age away!) Some of the "fun" tracks on this 60 song collection include Ice Ice Baby (Vanillia Ice) It's My Life (Dr Alban), Walk Like An Egyptian (The Bangles), Joyride (Roxette) and Straing Up (Paula Abdul). Total cheesy songs for a great driving experience!
Various - The Best Of Springbok Radio Top 40
During 1950 - 1985 Springbok Radio ruled the South Africa airwaves. The radio station was the number one stop for all things music. In an attempt to mix the nostalgia pot, a best of the Springkbok Radio CD collection has now been released in a 2-disc set. It's a great mixture of songs from way back then and now. It's features songs from the 70's and 80's. CD 1 kicks off with Queen (I Want To Break Free) and also includes Suzi Quatro's She's In Love With You, Clout's Substitute and Gleny's Lynne's Ramaja. CD 2 features John Lennon, UB40, Level 42 and Laura Branigan to name a few. An AWESOME collection for those who like the nostalgia music.
Various - The Best Club Anthems 2012
If you like your doof doof music a bit more harder, then Kevin Grenfell's three disc compilation, The Best Club Anthems 2012, is right up your alley. The 51-track dance tunes can be a bit monotonous at times, but Kevin throws in some surprising songs just to give it that extra edge, like the Fedde Le Grand remix of the Coldplay hit Paradise. Other floor bangers include Martin Solveig song Big In Japan Davig Guetta with Usher song Without You (Armin Van Buren remix). It’s a great CD collection if you wanna get your party startin’ and should appeal to dance music lovers.
