Review and Competition: A Right Royal Knees-Up CD set

I know, two competitions in two days; I am really spoiling you!

The News of the World have sent me copies of a special double CD set, called A Right Royal Knees-Up, in honour of the forthcoming royal wedding, which is now less than three weeks away. The set is available free to all readers of the News of the World. Two vouchers will be published in the paper - one today and one next Sunday - and vouchers can be exchanged for CDs at all Tesco stores nationwide, excluding forecourts. Vouchers are valid for one week so you have plenty of time to collect your free CDs.

CD1 comes in a collectible wallet with space for CD2 to be added. Each CD has 8 tracks, featuring hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, although a good half are from the 80s, which is the decade of my teens and early adulthood and therefore a decade of some fond memories for me. The tracks are billed as "floor-fillers" and there certainly aren't any duff tracks that you've never heard of before. Make your own mind up - the track listing is as follows:

CD1 – available from today,

1. Culture Club - Karma Chameleon
2. Katrina and the Waves - Walking on Sunshine
3. MC Hammer - U Can’t Touch This
4. Chesney Hawkes - The One and Only
5. Bryan Ferry - Let’s Stick Together
6. Heaven 17 – Temptation
7. Pato Banton feat. Ali & Robin Campbell - Baby Come Back
8. The Swinging Blue Jeans - The Hippy Hippy Shake

CD 2 – available next week 

1. The Proclaimers - I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)
2. Belinda Carlisle - Heaven is a Place on Earth
3. Human League - Don’t You Want Me
4. Kajagoogoo – Too Shy
5. Supergrass – Alright
6. Huey Lewis and The News - The Power of Love
7. Tommy James and The Shondells - Mony Mony
8. Jeff Beck - Hi Ho Silver Lining

Some crackers there, eh? Good for family parties, I'd say - whether you have it in a street or not. Neither CD is particularly long - they're around half an hour long each - so I wouldn't want to rely on them totally to provide a musical background to a party. But it wouldn't be a bad hour. I wonder if the News of the World has sent a set to Buckingham Palace. I can just imagine them singing along to the Proclaimers a bit like in the Comic Relief video from a few years ago as the evening draws to a close, worse for wear on sherry and port. Or maybe not. Given that William and Kate were born in 1982, they probably prefer something a little more contemporary. 

If you can't get hold of the vouchers, never fear. I have one set of CDs to give away to one lucky winner. 

All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment below, telling me which of the tracks listed above is your favourite. Mine is Temptation by Heaven 17 - a cracking dance tune that reminds me of the year I took my A levels and went off to University. Good times. 

The competition will close at 23:59 on Tuesday 19th April and the winner will be drawn at random. 

Good luck!
