Best M.I.A. Songs

I absolutely love MIA and was shocked to see that she didn't already have her own list here. Please vote if you disagree.

The Top Ten

1 Paper Planes

One of the best electro music of all time... Really very amazing chorus... Heads off M.I.A... Salute to you really... Just listen to it for 1 time.. You will know why m saying this.. And trust me I mean it... Just love it...

Best M.I. A song, by far, electro and Indian music combined, makes a great state of relaxation in my head, and the song has powerful lyrics too, my favourite

M.I.A. has a lot of great songs, but let's be honest guys... This is far and away the best, with clever lyrics and an incredible instrumental. Arguably one of the best songs of all time, in my humble opinion.

This is the best M.I. A song undoubtedly. Amazing song composition with very different tune and music making it unique. Can listen to it over and over...

It has one of the best messages made about pop music/culture while adding an addicting beat. It is a diffrent twist from MIAs usual work which also makes it better

Politically aware song that has to do with the refugees. The world needs more artists like M.I.A.

Such an amazing perspective on the refugee crisis

Painfully underrated bop with an amazing message
