Lily Allen: “Not Fair” (2009)

Lily Allen’s “Not Fair” is a genre-bender, as is its source album, 2009’s It’s Not Me It’s You. While the song and the album touch on country (nice Porter Wagoner bookend, by the way) it’s better described, I think, as “adult bubble gum”–definitely teeth-rottingly sweet, but pretty saucy on the lyrical side. So funny to be so taken by a song’s catchiness, then have that “wait–what did she just say?” moment. Good stuff.
