A dance
 album about Imelda Marcos? Not exactly what you'd imagine bumping at the club. But the ex–first lady of the Philippines, a Studio 54 regular, would've loved Fatboy Slim's grooves. While the relentlessly breezy vibe 
occasionally drifts into numbness, Marcos' story remains fascinating, especially as sung by the likes of Cyndi Lauper, St. Vincent, and Santigold.
