Mimosa is a 1999 compilation album released by the Fun Lovin' Criminals. The album is a collection of rarities, b-sides, remixes, and covers. It features some notable lounge music versions of old FLC songs, with the exception of "Bombin the L" (Circa 1956 Version) which, as the title suggest is performed in a fast swing style. "I'm Not In Love" was a successful double A side single with "Scooby Snacks" in 1996, but it was not released on an album until Mimosa. Ian McCulloch sings vocals on "Summer Wind."
