One of the better songs out there that you’ll never hear on the radio, likely NSFW

I love Lily Allen’s songs, with her irreverent wit and sarcasm.  I could listen to her entire first album, Alright, Still, for days on end.  Everything’s Just Wonderful was my theme song back in 2007.  Lily tells it like it is, and it is no different here.  She uses autotune and riffs on twerking, Robin Thicke, and even “it’s hard out here for a pimp”; none of the scenes in the video are original except for the initial surgery scene.  Otherwise, they are all spoofs and satires of other videos (alphabet balloons anyone?).

Also – if you missed it: And if you can’t detect the sarcasm, You’ve misunderstood.

The following video actually does a very good job at rebutting a lot of the criticism of the video, such as why are all the dancers black, why does she use autotune, and how she is putting down women who want to have kids (hint: she’s not).

I for one say: welcome back, Lily!

  1. I agree, I think this song is a great ‘comeback’ to the music scene for Lily. I’ve only heard the song once and it was in my head for the rest of the next day!
