Released: February 1998

Cornershop were – still are, actually – an underrated albums band who became defined by the one hit they had that took over the world and, in "Everybody needs a bosom for a pillow", germinated a phrase that should have been as all-encompasing in British culture as "am I bovvered?" The original version was a slowed, stretched guitar meander that only sounded right when delivered – as the band tended to – when sat cross-legged; this remix was the party-starting peak of Norman Cook's career and became the pop and dance anthem of the year.
