I was listening to The Essential Clash this weekend for the first time in ages, and when I heard the opening bars of "Straight to Hell," I realized that I'd never be able to listen to it again without wanting to hear "Paper Planes" immediately afterwards. That M.I.A. can sure pick some good samples.
M.I.A.'s coolness is contagious, too. When I was watching the trailer for Pineapple Express, I was mostly indifferent until "Paper Planes" came on the soundtrack and I suddenly decided that this would be the awesomest movie ever.
