Paper Planes By MIA!

My last post is about Slumdog Millionaire right? We have already heard Pussycat Doll's Jai Ho earlier on. So shall we listen to the original version this week? I would love to...but...to bad I can't find the song. But I did managed to find another alternative which was featured in the Slumdog Millionaire itself. For those of you who have watched it, did you notice there's an opening song being played while the kids were playing in the compound of the airport? Then they were chased by the airport securities right into their village? Yes, I'm going to pick that song as the Music Monday of today. It's known as Paper Planes by M.I.A (Both hyperlinks are different).

M.I.A.

Although this song-Paper Planes was produced in 2007, it was not until a year later that it started to gain prominence and commercial success. Paper Planes is not only featured in the movie but also as one of Slumdog Millionaire's OST. And guess what? Do you know that this song was also nominated as the Record of The Year for the 2008 Grammy Awards? Then in 2009, M.I.A was placed in Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People simply for 'having global influence' across many genres. Sounds like she has a lot to offer huh?

Paper Planes by M.I.A.

[x2]
I fly like paper, get high like planes
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name
If you come around here, I make 'em all day
I get one down in a second if you wait

[x2]
Sometimes I think sitting on trains
Every stop I get to I'm clocking that game
Everyone's a winner, we're making our fame
Bonafide hustler making my name

[x4]
All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money

[x2]
Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bongs
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison through their system

[x2]
No one on the corner has swagger like us
Hit me on my Burner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hell just pumping that gas

[x4]
All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)
And (KKKAAAA CHING!)
And take your money

M.I.A.
Third world democracy
Yeah, I got more records than the K.G.B.
So, uh, no funny business

Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go
Some some some I some I murder
Some I some I let go
