Where can I get a list of all the songs that appeared in the "Now That's What I Call Music" series?

I'd like to get hold of a long list of all the songs that have been on the "Now That's What I Call Music" music compilation (from number 1 right up to the current 79). Is that possible and, if so, how?

I'm not interested in the compilation that the song was in or the year or really anything else - but I would like (at the very least) the name of the song and the artist.
I appreciate that some songs were repeated over the entire collection and, as such, I don't mind if there are duplicates. The ordering of this list also doesn't matter. I plan to run the data through a (self-written) script so, in an ideal world, it should be in an easily parse-able format - however I'm prepared to compromise.
I could download the FreeDB database and parse that, but it's a fair bit of work as I'd have to look through all the CDs they have on record to find the albums I want. Lots of Google results indicate that www.nowmusic.com
contains a full list, but that site no longer does.
Can anyone suggest an easier and quicker way to get this information?
(in case you're wondering, I plan to examine all the songs in my own music collection against those in the Now collection and create a new album which contains, if you like, what I consider to be "the best of Now")
