m.i.a. covers disco dancer
So it turns out that "Jimmy," the new M.I.A. song from Kala that I've hyped up a couple times in the last week or so, is actually a cover of a song from a 1982 Bollywood blockbuster called Disco Dancer. Apparently this shit was huge in the Soviet Union. Go figure. Anyway, I can't wait to hear how M.I.A. murders this track.
