Slumdog Millionaire [OST]

Slumdog Millionaire [OST]
Interscope Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
I can't say that I am a person that ever really cares to relive a movie through its soundtrack but on occasion a film comes along that the music integrates so marvelously that listening again is a must. The charming Slumdog Millionaire is just one of those movies as composer A.R. Rahman and director Danny Boyle make you feel emotion through their perfectly sequenced pieces. The soundtrack already has won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score and has been nominated for three Academy Award nominations. If you have not seen the film the soundtrack is full of fast paced heavy beats that represent the culture while giving them an electric jolt of modernization plus the ever powerful M.I.A., making listening a fun experience every time.

Key Track: "O... Saya" (M.I.A./A.R. Rahman)
