I’m Bored: Commenting The US Presidential Election With Lily Allen’s Songs

Cause why not, this election is a gold mine for people who is willing to make fun of it.

Lily Allen is a British pop singer that has some fame in around 2009, before Adele eventually churn out consistently memorable songs even when she’s taking care of a baby with her own voice while Lily decided to take a rest so she could be taking care for her baby, till the point that her brother, Alfie, who she mocked in her song, Alfie, is more famous than her than to Game of Thrones, a show that I am not interested in.

While our viewpoints are different, I don’t care about it because both of us are unable to vote for the next US President, the election is over & people have to deal with it, and I will always remember some of her songs by heart, that is how strong some of her songs are before Sheezus muck everything up..

Thus, to remember her (for some reason), I decided to use her songs to match some feelings for this US Election, again. (So please don’t take this seriously)

The Fear, 2009 (It’s Not Me, It’s You)

Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner

Lyrically her best song. About a somewhat famous celebrity feeling like a chameleon the government or the media wants them to be so that they could be famous. From outsider listening to the celebrities’ claims & wishes, you just have to wonder are they real, or are they paid. If I was a Trump supporter in the US, I wouldn’t have any hard feelings towards them as they have to perform, act & deride for their paycheck, I would just simply ignore them & listen to other celebrities like Taylor Swift who wisely back off from commenting on the election too visibly, immediately losing about half of the US fanbase can be a dangerous gamble.

F*** You (Very Much), 2009 (It’s Not Me, It’s You)

This song is about George W Bush & his dealings with those -isms and the Iraq War, and funnily, one line is especially good in a Donald Trump roast, in:

“You want to be like your father, It’s approval you’re after”


There is a huge barrage of F*** You, which can be deduced as a fanatic liberal who is willing to talk down towards people who even have some doubts about Clinton.

LDN, 2006 (Alright, Still)

You might laugh you might frown.

Seeing the fantasy life, and seeing the real life. Really hits the home when the mainstream media, celebrities & California expectations of setting a new achievement was shattered, polls & their supposed influence over their people, when Donald Trump ended up winning the election, and seeing that the fantasy created & maintained by the mainstream news was brutally shattered as voters are just not enthusiastic about Clinton, and most of them are not because she’s a woman.

Smile, 2006 (Alright, Still)

At first, when I see you cry, and it makes me smile.

This song is about a woman who gloat about her ex after feeling bad for a while, fitting for the Donald Trump voters who gloat about their victory while seeing their opponents meltdown in social media. Still, US still needs to be united for both parties, but why can’t they have some fun for a while.

If this song (& LDN) is released in 2016, some of her fans would want her head for cultural appropriation in stealing Reggae beats.
