Slumdog Millionaire has got a million dollar soundtrack.

Music is great, and so are movies. In honor of its recent win at the Golden Globes, I want to plug A.R. Rahman's mindblowing soundtrack from Danny Boyle's film Slumdog Millionaire. If you haven't seen this movie yet, go now. Slumdog awesomely features M.I.A. in the songs "Paper Planes", "Paper Planes (DFA Remix)", as well as A.R. Rahman's original composition "O...Saya". Other great tracks include "Jai Ho", "Gangsta Blues", and "Latika's Theme". It's an eclectic mix of Bollywood, hip-hop, rock, electronic, and folk -- all in one package.

Check out the links below for some sample goodness. I know we've posted "O...Saya" before, but I've just got to remind you all how fantastic this whole soundtrack is.

A. R. Rahman ft. Sukhwinder Singh, Tanvi Shah, Mahalakshmi Iyer - Jai Ho (zshare)
