The Q Magazine Best of 86/06 Compilation has been well posted. It features the Editors' version of Orange Crush, Franz Ferdinand's take on What Are You Waiting For, and the track that led hordes of teenie-boppers to the mag racks: the Sugababes' cover of Arctic Monkeys' I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.

These two tracks are the reasons I've got the comp in heavy rotation:

Richard Hawley - Some Candy Talking (Jesus and Mary Chain) (mp3)
Nick Cave - Disco 2000 (Pulp) (mp3)

Call me crazy, but I prefer Richard Hawley's version to the original Jesus and Mary Chain song. It's more sinister. You hear the longing in his voice, and he convinces you that he relishes his subject. You believe him.
