You Oughta Know: Lily Allen
Say there, sport, do you know Lily Allen? Oh, you don’t, eh? Hmm. You must be American. Well, look, pal, get this through your skull: you oughta know Lily Allen!
Oh, don’t you worry, friend: you’d better believe that we’ll tell you why. It’s because she’s f***ing amazing, that’s why!
Oops. Sorry about dropping the F-bomb back there. But not that sorry. We’d be doling out some pretty fierce hyperbole if we were to apologize too much about using that particular four-letter word to describe Lily Allen, given that she’s a woman who drops it into her lyrics on a regular basis without batting an eyelash.
So getting back to Ms. Allen...
We’ve put together a playlist for your listening enjoyment, one which will take you from her first album, 2006’s ALRIGHT, STILL, all the way up to her latest LP, NO SHAME, which came out last year. In fact, the playlist actually stretches into 2019, thanks to the inclusion of the Popcaan remix of “What You Waiting For?”
Take a cue from the playlist’s title – “Let’s All Listen to Lily Allen!” – and give it a spin. That way, you’ll know Lily Allen…and with any luck, you’ll love her as much as we do!
