"Clocks" (Royksopp's Trembling Heart Mix). The presence of Royksopp -- a fantastic Norwegian electro act -- transforms the watery piano ballad into a nifty electro-funk throb."Moses." Sure, it's a U2 ripoff -- but it's a damn good U2 ripoff. (And probably better than U2's most recent album, to be honest.)
"Lips Like Sugar" (Echo & the Bunnymen). Ian McCulloch is a self-avowed Coldplay fan, and Coldplay does the classic late '80s alt-rock single justice.
