The Max Hits year-end releases are something to look forward to. It’s the best compilation having all your hits on one mind-blowing CD. If you have already ripped off these hits and put them on your phone, you can still own the physical copy for your collection of best of 2015. There will no doubt be one of two tracks that you may not want to replay, but on the whole it’s a great collection.
The album is a collection of fiery dance numbers that have swept people off their feet over the last year. The album opener is the hugely popular Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars. Play on with Sing by Brit singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and go ‘ohhhhhhhhhhh’. If EDM is your poison, there’s loads here from dancemaster David Guetta who hits you bang on with a punching beat on Dangerous (feat. Sam Martin), Calvin Harris with the repetitious Blame to Dillion Francis with his well-knit rendition of Get Low to Prayer in C (Lily Wood and The Prick and Robin Schulz) to Hardwell with Eclipse, making this partly an EDM music lovers’ playlist. Taking you to the height of beats, rhythm, music and dance enigma we have Magic with their superhit Rude, followed by One Direction with Steal My Girl and Meghan Trainor’s massive hit All About That Bass.
Talent powerhouse Sia brings her high-pitched vocals to the scintillating Chandelier, a song that has become an anthem today. John Legend pitches slowly with his fabulous piano-based All Of Me that grooves smoothly over Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years. Pharrell Williams’ Happy (live version) is still a rage with its sashaying rhythm and even though it’s a live version, still has the pep to make you take to the floor right from its opening bars. Wonder boy from the U.K., George Ezra, brings on his thoughts of a foreign land in Budapest, while we have an old reggae favourite Shaggy sharing the stage with Mohombi, Faydee, Costi on a new version of Habibi Love (I Need Your Love).
Rewind a few months and take in the official theme song of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 with WDL featuring Maawe on the hard-hitting Bob’s Beat. Other delightful numbers are the less popular but potential pop charts toppers like Cool Kids (Echosmith) Rather Be (Clean Bandit) and Am I Wrong (Nico and Vinz),
So put on your dancing shoes. Get funky and let your hair down.
