The Greatest Hits is a 2003 Lulu album charting her 40-year career in music from 1964's UK Top Ten Hit "Shout" through 2002's "We've Got Tonight," a UK Top 5 duet with Ronan Keating. It also covers everything in between, including her 1967 US #1 Hit "To Sir With Love", the 1969 Eurovision Song Contest winner "Boom Bang-a-Bang", the 1974 James Bond theme "The Man with the Golden Gun," and the 1993 UK #1 Hit "Relight My Fire" (duet with Take That).

The album combines her UK hits such as "The Boat That I Row" and "The Man Who Sold The World", as well as her successful singles in the US like "Oh Me Oh My (I'm A Fool For You Baby)" and "I Could Never Miss You (More Than I Do)". Tracks from her 2002 album "Together" are also featured, with duets with Elton John and Sting. The final track, "First Of May" is a duet with her former husband Maurice Gibb, taken from her "An Audience With Lulu" ITV television special, making it the only song which debuted on the CD.
