Its Not Me, Its You.

Top track by Lily Allen! Would you believe I heard it for the first time at SOBO Central in Tardeo, Mumbai – ironically while I was shopping?! Yup, go figure, a full out English in store radio station (the kind Nadir and I do for Shoppers Stop across the country – yup that’s my voice you hear!) But I love this video (the trippy balloon people and the mock up of orphan Annie’s stewards in waiting, Lily Allen’s wicked straight faced – acid laced sense of humor.) I love the lyrics… “Life’s about film stars and less about mothers” (even the naughty ones) “I want loads of clothes, and f*ckloads of diamonds, I heard people die while they’re trying to find them…” I love that this song is in some ways about all of us, and most especially about the rich & restless I often blog about here, the all have “The Fear.”The Fear – Lily Allen
Album – It’s Not Me Its You

I wanna be rich
And I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever
I don’t care about funny

I want loads of clothes
And f*ckloads of diamonds
I heard people die while they’re trying to find them

And I’ll take my clothes off
And it will be shameless
‘Cause everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah, I’m onto a winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s new anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and cussing each other
But that doesn’t matter ’cause I’m packing plastic
And that’s what makes my life so f*cking fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it’s not my fault, it’s how I’m programmed to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track, yeah, we’re on to the winner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s new anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

Forget about guns and forget ammunition
‘Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Yeah I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
and everything’s cool as long as I’m getting thinner

I don’t know what’s right and what’s new anymore
And I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by the fear

(Here’s how they made the video…)
