And often, the albums owned by everyone were compilations because there were several musical styles that could appeal to the greatest number.

Bag of Chips has listed for you 15 compilations that you have surely already owned and which are still potentially lying around in the bottom of your tank.

As Seen On TV

Big Shiny Tunes (1996-2009)

We don’t know what struck us the most. The songs as such or the advertisements at Musique Plus…
Highlights: All the ones on Big Shiny Tunes 2

Dance Mix (1990-)

We don’t know what struck us the most. The songs as such or the advertisements at Musique Plus…
Highlights: All those on Danse Mix 94

Cool Rock (1995) and Red Hot (1998)

We don’t know what struck us the most. The songs as such or the ads at TQS…

Highlights: Lady In Red by Chris de Burgh, Tiny Dancer by Tina Turner

Soundtracks from movies or TV series

Forrest Gump (1994)

Life is like the soundtrack of Forrest Gump: you never know what you’re going to find.
Highlights: Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival, For What It’s Worth by Buffalo Springfield

Dirty Dancing (1987)

A good mix of current music (from that era) and classics from the 60s.

Highlights: (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, She’s Like the Wind by Patrick Swayze

Pulp Fiction (1994)

In the room Third Stone From The Sun from the album Are You Experienced? released in 1967, Jimi Hendrix says in a fake voice: “You will never hear surf music again.” Thanks to the soundtrack of the second film directed by Quentin Tarantino, Hendrix’s prediction turned out to be wrong.
Highlights: Miserlou by Dick Dale, Son of a Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield, Girl, You’ll be a Woman Soon by Urge Overkill

French songs

The Milk, The White Album (2000)

Who does not remember the famous advertising campaign for milk at the beginning of the millennium?
Highlights: It’s my life by Adamo, If you didn’t exist by Joe Dassin

Quebectronic 80 (2005)

When we think of Quebec songs, we don’t necessarily think of electro music. However, several well-known artists dared the genre in the 80s. This compilation brings them together.
Highlights: Tears of Metal by Soupir, Call Girl by Nanette Workman

I Remember (1998)

In the form of a box of 3 CDs, we found the emblematic songs that served as a soundtrack to the Quebec independence movement.

Highlights: The People of My Country by Gilles Vigneault, Mommy Daddy by Dominique Michel

Artist compilations

Quebec Love: Robert Charlebois (1993)

In the 90s, the house Disques-O-Québec launched the Québec Love collection to highlight the musical heritage of our greatest artists. Compilation of the performerOrdinary was particularly successful, but we could also have chosen Claude Gauthier or Pauline Julien.

Highlights: The wings of an angel, All torn

Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and the Wailers (1984)

Serious windfall, everyone has that record.
Highlights: Could You Be Loved, Get Up Stand Up

The Immaculate Collection Madonna (1990)

Before becoming a lookalike of the reincarnation of the Bogdanoff brothers, Madonna was the queen of pop in the 80s and 90s. This compilation focuses on his first 7 years.

Highlights: Like A Virgin, Like A Prayer

Special Mentions

Tonight we dance flight. 1-2… (1991)
Jive Bunny and the Master Mixers (1989)

We know that these are not really compilations, but given that they brought together several songs (of sometimes different styles), we want to mention them. And they were very versatile, being played as much at weddings as they were at sugar shacks or camper Christmases.
