Slumdog Millionaire Soundtrack Review

| music |

I got the slumdog millionare soundtrack recently. I got it at FYE for only $10. I was really surpised when i walked into this mall and saw that FYE had ALL of their CD’s on sale for 10 bucks. The most interesting part is that I went to several other malls that same week and it seems like this was the only one that was having this deal. They are usually overpriced so I do not shop there much. (even thought I used to work there for a year. lol)

Anyway, If you saw the movie, and enjoyed it, then you know how awesome the music throughout the movie was. I have been wanting to get my hands on it for a while. A lot of the music is in Hindi so I do not understand a lot of it but that is okay because it is still AWESOME music. Just wonderful. I am going to break it down for you.

CD Track Listing

[The whole soundtrack was composed by an artist named A.R. Rhaman.]

  1. “O… Saya " - This is a great song to start things off. It has a little bit of M.I.A in it which always makes things rock. :) I discovered M.I.A Last year and it has been a wonderful experience ever since then. Her two CD’s “Kala” and “Arular” are just wonderful. An eclectic mix of house, tribal, and her own music.

  2. “Riots” - This is just one of those transitional Songs that they play in the movie. I usually skip this one if I have the whole CD on repeat. It is not a bad song and worth a listen, but not something that I would bump on a daily basis. :)

  3. “Mausam and Escape” - This song has a wonderful guitar part that just takes you to a whole other world. I love it! It is also a “transitional” song but it definantly is worth a listen. It starts of slow but then gets you pumped and ready for some action.

  4. “Paper Planes” - This is a CLASSIC M.I.A song from her album Kala. It has been used in tons of movies now… and I still love it no many times how I hear it. The music is just so addictive and her lyrics make me smile a lot! " All I wanna do is BANG BANG BANG! " Sometimes I really feel that way.

  5. “Paper Planes (DFA Remix) " - I was very surprised and excited to see this on this soundtrack. I have not heard many Paper Planes Remixes and this one is certainly a favorite of mine! It is very upbeat and the bass part is awesome.

  6. “Ringa Ringa” - This is by far my FAVORITE song of the album. I am still working on trying to figure out exactly what the lyrics of this song mean, but I honestly would not even care. It is so catchy everything about it takes me to a huka bar in pakistan. :)

  7. “Liquid Dance” - This is a really cute little song. It is an interesting mixture of dancehall/progressive/eastern style music. Makes you want to dance.

  8. “Latika’s Theme” - Just a beautiful song… words are not enough. Listen to it.

  9. “Aaj Ki Raat” - Very nice little song. I feel like I am up on the clouds when I am listening to it.. just flying, soaring higher and higher.

  10. “Millionaire” - Another transitional song - skip it.

  11. “Gangsta Blues” - Nice little hip hop song - not my fav but worth a listen.

  12. “Dreams on Fire” - This song is going in my top 5 of all time. I LOVE IT. I want to play it at my wedding. For those of you who have read my blog you know my relationship status and how rocky it is. This song … give me hope.

  13. “Jai Ho” - This is the song from that random dance number at the end of the movie. Gotta love it.

All in all, I am in love with this soundtrack and I would recommend it it anyone even if you have not seen the movie! And if you have not seen the movie, what the heck are you waiting for? GO! NOW!
