This is actually the second time Postman Pat sang with Thomas The Tank Engine. Ken Barrie (who narrated Postman Pat) sang backing vocals on the song ‘Goodnight’ from The Beatles’ White Album, which was a song that Ringo (who narrated Thomas) was on... See full review

Classic Eminem track about Mom’s spaghetti. . . and also the struggles of emerging hip-hop talent, B-Rabbit from the surprisingly decent quasi-biopic film ‘8 Mile’.

Actor, Producer, Singer, Rapper, songwriter DJ and the voice of Sonic The Hedgehog’s friend, Knuckles The Echidna. Idris Elba is a man of many talents and excels at all of them.

The song 'I've Just Fallen For Someone' was actually co-written by an uncredited John Lennon. This came about because the song's writer, John Askew (AKA Johnny Gentle) had The Beatles (then, the Silver Beatles) backing him on his tour of Scotland in... See full review

The song was originally written by Henry VII as a tribute to his decapitated wives . . . or maybe not! Great classic House tune, that still excites crowds today.

If you loved Junkie XL's remix of 'A Little Less Conversation' and Oakenfold's remix of 'Rubberneckin'' then you will really enjoy these Big Beat remixes of Elvis tracks from Spankox, the guy responsible for the 2004 hit 'To The Club.

Considering he hadn’t found his trademark style yet, Em’s debut solo LP isn’t half bad (he considers it to be a bit of a rip-off of Nas). The rapping is excellent, even it does lack Em’s wicked sense of dark comedy, and his Slim Shady alter ego is... See full review

Fun rap record that doesn't take itself too seriously - The highlight would have to be the tuntablist cut-ups from Jazzy Jeff, especially on 'Live At Union Square'.

Despite this being the soundtrack to a fun family friendly movie, the tune with Busta Rhymes contains the line "So fast, it's gonna blow dry your asshole" - I wonder how that got past the censors!

Awesome movie soundtrack from a film I've actually never seen, performed by the guy who did the voice of Chef in 'South Park'. That theme tune alone is guaranteed to get your body moving, and even spawned a cover version from Bart and Lisa Simpson.

The first commercially successful "rap" record, preceding the classic Sugarhill Gang tune, 'Rapper's Delight' by 11 years. It reached No.19 in the UK Singles Charts, and it's a great record.

While the original version is pretty damn good, the best version has to be the Soulchild Remix, which is very Fatboy Slim-esque. The Wiseguys remix is also pretty good, despite not using much from the original song, has a really cool late 1990's funky... See full review

Really good official remixes of some of Paul McCartney's solo tunes, especially the remixes of 'Coming Up' (similar in tone to Fatboy Slim's remix of Cornershop's 'Brimful of Asha') and 'Temporary Secretary' (Banger!). Definitely one to put in your crates. See full review

Amazing soundtrack to one of my favourite video games of all time partially composed by none other than an uncredited Michael Jackson! In fact the game's closing credits theme was the prototype to M.J.'s hit song 'Stranger In Moscow'.

One of my favourite Freddy Fresh releases - A really banging 1990's Funky House tune, plus the remixes from Powder Productions and DJ Spinna are also excellent in their own right. Mr. Fresh knows how to make a really awesome funked up tune.

If you like '4:33' by John Cage or the audiobook version of Mr. Bean, then you will love this record produced by none other than the guy responsible for the Incredible Bongo Band, though this isn't quite as funky.

The clean version of this is hilarious. It's painfully obvious when the cuss words are replaced with PG-Rated substitutes or back masked, but it's worth it as a comedic collector's item for N.W.A. (Or as Ice Cube says in the clean version of the title... See full review

The version Fatboy Slim played was the Disco Dubber's Vocal Mix, which was featured on this release (https://www.discogs.com/Various-Club-Beats-Volume-24/release/1708163)

As far as I'm aware, I don't think Fatboy Slim did a remix of this track, but it is one he used to play on a regular basis during 1998 and 1999.

Best tune on this has to be 'Get Open' - such fun underrated piece of uptempo 1990's East Coast Hip-Hop, which is in collaboration with Onyx, that you may remember from the hit track 'Slam'.

Jim Carrey's rendition of "I Am The Walrus" with it's line "I am the Eggman" is really prophetic, as in 2020, he played Dr. Robotnik in the Sonic The Hedgehog, who is also sometimes as known as Dr. Eggman. Go-goo-g'joob!
