1. The Will to Truth, The Rise and Fall of Thuggy Stardust and the Hustlers From Mars
For no other reason than we've always wondered what it would sound like, here's Bowie's Ziggy Stardust album mashed up with raps from Jay-Z, Nas, and 2-Pac! [Will to Truth via Boing Boing]

2. Snoop Dogg, "Sensual Seduction (Remix)"
Here's the backing track to his pimptastic recent single, so you can pretend to be Snoop Dogg at home — something we're reasonably sure you were doing anyway. [Fluo Kids]

3. Arctic Monkeys, "Plastic Tramp"
Alex Turner can channel Dick Dale all he wants; he still looks like he's 13. [Music Slut]

4. Elliott Smith, "Dead End Street" (Kinks cover)
The possibility of a Kinks reunion tour is too awesome for even Elliott to stay quiet about it. [Music Slut]

5. Estelle feat. Kanye West, "American Boy"
Another female Brit coming to you via MySpace — except this one's actually good! [Stereogum]
