M.I.A. on Letterman with Suicide’s Martin Rev!!! Born Free!!!

Holy shit this is cool! I guess I was so distracted by Romain Gavras’ over the top video that I failed to realize that Born Free is basically the greatest fucking rock song ever. Appearing on Letterman with an army of clones, back up singers in burkas and Suicide’s Martin Rev on keys (Born Free is built around a sample of Suicide’s 1977 recording Ghost Rider), M.I.A. reminds us why she’s the most interesting Pop star since… fuck it, why she’s the most interesting Pop star period.
