M.I.A.: Jimmy

Easily one of the best tracks of the year, M.I.A. turns her ruffneck grime style to the camp disco of Bollywood. A genius, tongue-in-cheek remake of "Jimmy Jimmy Aija" of the Hindi film Disco Dancer, the swirling synths and psychedelic strings leave the average listener puzzled at initial hearing. When fully experienced with gold lamé multi-armed demigoddess choreography, bitmapped wallpaper FXs, and shapely shadow dancing, you fall in love with it all over again. The video is gloriously directed by Nezar Khamal. Watch the music video (qt).
