Lily Allen

B000kg5eqe01_aa240_sclzzzzzzz_I previously noted the live Lily Allen performances I uploaded to You Tube led to my DMCA takedown notice. But I never followed up with the singer involved; this post will clarify the omission.

Lily Allen had one of the UK's hottest albums last year, taking Britain by storm in summer 2006 with her debut album Alright, Still reaching No. 2 on the U.K. Album charts, with her first U.K. single, "Smile," topping the U.K. Airplay chart for six weeks in a row. On first listen, the music sounds like a cross between bubble gum pop and Reggae. But upon closer listening, one hears sharp lyrics and a feisty wit. She took at different route than Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill. Instead of bitter invective, Allen relies on her acid tongue and a sly taste for payback.

Lily's music is luvly, nice and easy to listen to. The first time I heard it I thought she was from somewhere in the Caribbean. It must be the sunshine in her voice!
