Of the twelve songs featured on The Golden Hits of Sandie Shaw, eleven are written by Chris Andrews who was hired as Shaws songwriter on her signing to Pye Records in 1964. The only song not written by him is the opener of side one - Shaws breakthrough single "Theres Always Something There to Remind Me," which is by American songwriting duo Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The song had originally been a minor hit in the US for Lou Johnson and was discovered by Shaws manager, Eve Taylor, on a song-hunting trip to America. Shaws version of the song was her breakthrough single, staying at number one on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in the autumn of 1964.

Shaws other number one single by this point, "Long Live Love", is the second track on The Golden Hits and is followed by the "B" sides to "Always Something There To Remind Me" and "Long Live Love" - a ballad entitled "Dont You Know" and the slightly more upbeat "Ive Heard About Him." Next comes the ballad "Id Be Far Better Off Without You," originally the "A" side follow-up to "Always Something There To Remind Me" but switched to the "B" side shortly after the records release in favour of the original "B" side "Girl Dont Come." Side one of The Golden Hits ends with Shaws third Top 5 hit "Ill Stop at Nothing".

Side two begins with the upbeat "How Can You Tell" - her first single since her breakthrough not to make the Top 10 it peaked at number 21. Next comes "You Cant Blame Him" - the "B" side to "Ill Stop at Nothing" and then "Dont You Count On It," the "B" side to "Message Understood," Shaws fifth Top 10 which is the next song on The Golden Hits. The final ballad on the album is "If Ever You Need Me," which was the "B" side to "How Can You Tell" and the album ends with "Girl Dont Come," her second Top 3 hit.
