Three songs for you, constituting exactly eleven minutes of listening pleasure.
First, Lily Allen – The Fear. I can’t get this out of my head at the moment. Big thanks to Parlaphone for not only sharing the video on YouTube, but also this audio-only version. It inspired me to go even further and hide the video altogether (I’m displaying it here at a minimalistic 25 pixels high) but you can still go full screen if you want.
I look at the Sun and I look in the Mirror … I am a weapon of massive consumption … Everything’s cool as long as I’m getting thinner …
Next, The Holloways – Generator is a lot of fun and seems to be back on Radio One’s playlist at the moment.
I can get a record player, and a generator. Generate the music that makes you feel better…
Lastly, Frank Turner – Reasons Not To Be An Idiot sounds a bit like the Lightening Seeds with Billy Bragg on vocals, but in a good way.
You’re not as messed up as you think you are
Your self-absorption makes you messier
Just settle down and you will feel a whole lot better
Deep down you’re just like everybody else …
