Slim, though, apparently feels some pull from his previous Top 40 hits and tries a few stabs at reclaiming that popularity from the masses.

Fatboy Slim, however, is the former Housemartin's most successful incarnation, launching a Top 40 crossover hit and popular advertising jingle with last year's "Going out of My Head."
