Following up on Vijay Iyer’s take (6/30/10), here’s the original.

M.I.A., “Galang” (2005)

One of the things I love about M.I.A. is that she doesn’t let any of the usual stuff get in her way. Take her dancing, for instance: she’s, uh, not real good at it—at least not by the usual standards. Does that stop her? Nah.
