M.I.A Paper Airplanes I Love This Friggin' Song

Here's a song by M.I.A. called Paper Airplanes that's been out for a while. It's used in Slumdog Millionaire. You know, the movie I was telling you to see. Never has the combination of a cash register and a gun been used in a song so effectively. Well, it's was pretty cool in Pink Floyd's "Money" but there was no gun.

And did you know that this song sampled "Straight to Hell" by the Clash. It's true. Click on that link and see.

Let me know if you like it. I'm not crazy about the video but the song is really cool. Like me.

Oh, by the way, some of my stuff is listed in my sidebar... nowhere near as fancy as Wendy's, though!

It had a good beat and was easy to dance to.



I liked it.

It had a good dance and was easy to beat to. And yes, you are really cool. Now excuse me while I go onto Amazon.com and order some of that bacon air freshener!

I have a love/hate with this song.
MOstly it annoys the shit out of me...But if I am in the right mood, I can jam to it.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Yeah, I know I'm a little late but in my defense I'm lazy.

So in order to make up for it, I'm hereby sending you some boob shots in your email.

Well, not really...but one can hope ;)

I started liking this song when I went to a bachelorette party for a friend of mine a few months ago and we went to burlesque show where the chic did a strip tease/belly dance to this song.

Stuck in my head ever since.

" Paper Airplanes " is a freaking ace song - its kind of mellow, but completely danceable. Plus, M.I.A has some serious sass!

Vodka Mom said...

Giggle Pixie said...

I had only heard this song a couple of times (yeah, I'm behind the times!) but it's definitely catchy!

Andy said...

My girlfriend hates this song. I love this song. It could be a sign.... that musical differences don't matter much, cause she's awesome.

Greta said...

MIA is amazing! Zibbs you are like the coolest blogger EVA.

LYDIA said...

Big fan of M.I.A. - her music is very interesting. Perhaps you should check out the whole album Kala? Or her old one Arular? Nah, you will probably like Kala better.

Fancy Schmancy said...

I've heard of her, but never heard one of her songs. Very cool, but nothing is as cool as you are!

Tanya Kristine said...

whoa she's seriously off key and she has a video? I'd KILL her in a sing-off contest.
