Waxworks: Some Singles 1977-1982 is a compilation album released by XTC in 1982. Though it followed closely on the heels of the successful English Settlement album and its lead-off single "Senses Working Overtime", it failed to crack the Top 40, perhaps signalling their commercial decline in Britain. All twelve tracks appear on the first disc of 1996's Fossil Fuel: The XTC Singles 1977-1992. It was initially released alongside a companion album, Beeswax: Some B-Sides 1977-1982.
