We've pulled tracks from 44 albums worth of pop-ness

November 05, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

It's album release Tuesday, which means lots of new tunes to delight you. Oh yeah, and the latest edition of the Now! music series, featuring the likes of Pink, Maroon 5, Psy, Nicki Minaj and Usher -- stuff we suspect you've heard more than a few dozen times. To honor the 44th edition of Now!, we've compiled the ULTIMATE Now! playlist of songs you may have forgotten. You're welcome.

1 -- "Bailamos," Enrique Iglesias

The mole! We miss the mole so much, Enrique!

2 -- "London Bridge," Fergie

This song is so. much. better. than "Fergalicious."

3 -- "What Would You Do?" City High

Starving woman sells her body, ladies and gentlemen. It just screams classic.

4 -- "Candy," Mandy Moore

Love always, Mandy. The pants of this era were just incredible.

5 -- "Girl All the Bad Guys Want," Bowling for Soup

A song for the badass girls, or the girls who really wished they were badasses in high school.

6 -- "Waiting for Tonight," Jennifer Lopez

This track could REALLY use more modern radio play.

7 -- "Right Thur," Chingy

Right whur? Oh right, we've got it.

8 -- "I Think I'm In Love With You," Jessica Simpson

That one part where she rips off John Cougar's "Jack and Diane." Oh wait, that's the WHOLE thing. Also, please go back and watch this video.

9 -- "The Hardest Thing," 98 Degrees

We're sorry, but the boy bands just cannot be ignored in this flashback.

10 -- "Bossy," Kelis

Admit it: At one point, this song was your JAM. Or maybe that was just us.

11 -- "Ms. New Booty," Bubba Sparxxx

Is the booty new to her, or just new to him? We never did figure it out.

12 -- "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)," Baz Luhrmann

This is a WEIRD song. It's not even a song. Winner.
