'Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory': Tracklisting

The Facebook page for that Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory compilation (out July 9) finally got 1,000 likes, and the tracklist was posted yesterday. If you already own the 2005 Stock Aitken Waterman Gold set, this three-disc package is worth it for the third CD only.

I will say that it's bizarre to include Steps' "Heartbeat". True, it went to #1 as a double A-side with "Tragedy," but the latter proved to be the far more popular of the two, and "One For Sorry" is surely the band's other widely-recognized signature song, no?

Another random choice: Loveland's "Let The Music (Lift You Up)." Not complaining, though. Loveland's entire 1995 The Wonder Of Love LP is pretty spectacular.

And bravo for the remastered "Looking Good Diving" and "Heartache." Pity about no Donna Summer, however.

    How could they leave out Donna Summer's "This Time I Know It's For Real?"

    Except that the version of "Looking Good Diving" included is the remix (the B-side), and NOT the original single version (the A-side).
