Fave albums in 2011
finally decided to give in to a Dolly Parton box set (minus the box)
this year. As one of the most successful female songwriters ever, she
deserved it. The song I spent the most time with was one my dad used to
have on a mixed 8 track! It's a fine example of her talent, both in
lyric and melody.
All you gotta do is smile and smile
And there go all my defenses
Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You - I'm not sure which song is my favorite, "Fuck You" which so jolly-fully expresses how one feels about bigots (except, well ok, I don't hate anyone); or "Not Fair" about a guy who's perfect in every way except he's selfish in bed. Lily Allen just puts it all on the table, but in a silly way as opposed to a "I fall upon the thorns of life I bleed" way.
Do you really enjoy living a life that's so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where your soul should be
Your losing control of it and it's really distasteful
Fuck you very, very much
