The Best Of

I wonder in the age of the internet and downloading do best of albums still have the same impact that they had years ago. Today we can look up the album's listings and choose the few songs we like. I guess some best of's represent good value for money even when downloaded and it also shows what kind of career an artist has had to date. I think Pink's will do well both in relation to downloads and fans buying the CDs. I remember when The Immaculate Collection came out it was such an event but I don't think there have been that many such events in recent years. Someone who has a best of out for Christmas is Nelly Furtado. It features all her well known songs including the lovely Broken Wings with James Morrison. Say It Right is also one of my favourite songs of the past decade and songs like Promiscuous and Maneater also from the same album are great pop songs. Good old Timbaland. The Best Of Nelly Furtado includes 3 new songs which are Girlfriend In The City, Stars and the song below The Night Is young. That song has been on the net since early October but I've only heard it today. Compared to her other songs I think it's one of her weakest songs to date, maybe I need a few more listens.
