This heartwarming synth-banger finds M.I.A. singing and rapping about looking to the past to build a better future. However, as with much of the British-Sri Lankan provocateur's music she inserts some political rhymes too, as she spits some bars about drones and destruction. M.I.A said on the song's Soundcloud description:
"DEMOCRACY CONVERSATIONS ! TAMILS ARE STILL WAITING! AND NO MY BEATS ARE NOT BETTER WITHOUT MY POLITICX."
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
