Many of you will be familiar with the 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire the story of a young Indian lad from the slums of Mumbai who wins the jackpot in the Indian Version of Who Wants to Be A Millionaire.
It won the Oscar for best film in 2009 with Danny Boyle picking up the award for Best Director.
A R Rahman was also a worthy winner for Best Original Score and Best 0riginal Song for Jai Ho.

It is a terrific soundtrack mixing traditional Indian music with house music and hip hop. It also features M.I.A ( or the atomic M.I.A as the blurb on the front cover would have it)
As I'm feeling generous you are getting two versions of Paper Planes.

M.I.A. - Paper Planes

M.I.A. -Paper Planes (DFA Remix)

A.R.Rahman featuring Alka Yagnik - Ringa Ringa


  1. Indeed a fantastic movie that got his oscars for right CC. And thanks for the two versions of paper plan.

  2. Best use of a Clash sample ever

  3. Loved the film and these tunes bite hard.

  4. Great tune.

  5. I like this one and hope all parties involved with the Clash got paid for this one big time as the sampling is extreme. Still, can't argue with the results.

  6. They are certainly credited on the album Brian
