One More Time With Feeling
For those keeping score at home, Sarah McLachlan's latest remix album makes it, by our count, five studio records (Touch, Solace, Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, Surfacing and Afterglow) against six collections of other stuff (Bloom Remix Album, Afterglow Live, Sarah McLachlan Remixed, Mirrorball, Rarities, B-Sides And Other Stuff and The Freedom Sessions) over the 16 years of her published career. This probably makes her some kind of revolutionary. Or at least a marketing genius.

Vaguely related: MIA's Honda ad is probably genius, if only because it so screws with the minds of those who so love her. There's probably also a case to be made that it's all very subversive, but, to be honest, we really just love it because it bothers the sell-out police. (Selling out, by the way, for those still keeping score, is probably the most out-of-date, backwards and incomprehensible notion in pop music. We struggle to think of anything more meaningless. Though we're tempted to insert an easy punk rock and/or Moxy Fruvous joke here.)

Bonus: MIA to tour with Gwen Stefani, including shows in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver.

Bonus II: That time we interviewed MIA and then posted excerpts on our blog.
