Essential Songs 2008 features Take That, Amy Winehouse, Timbaland and more

Essential Songs

With the first two albums selling over 350k copies between them, UMTV have put together another brilliant album of the best songs of the year - 'Essential Songs 2008', set for release in the UK on 3rd December 2007.

Now that the end of the year is in sight, it's time to sit back and reminisce about the good times of 2007 and get ready to see in the New Year. What better way to do this than by listening to the biggest essential songs of the year?

The track list reads like a who's who of pop royalty. From the shiny new, to the classic greats. Starting with the come back kings Take That and their massive new hit "Rule The World" (from the hit movie Stardust), moving onto the collaboration between modern day diva Amy Winehouse and superstar producer Mark Ronson with the track "Valerie". With new blood from the Coronation Street heartthrob Richard Fleeshman, and classics from legends Oasis, The Cranberries and Paul Weller, CD 1 really does have something for everyone.

The second CD opens with the exclusive of pop prince Mika's new track "Happy Ending" and carries on with an eclectic mix of songs from artists old and new, with girl power being added by Feist and her catchy "1234" and Mutya Buena with "Real Girl".

If that isn't enough to entice you, 'Essential Songs - 2008' also includes tracks from some of the finest artists in the world including The Killers, Nelly Furtado, Embrace and Pop royalty Elton John.
