I don't know what's right and what's real anymore

I don't think I've mentioned on here yet that Lily Allen's new single, "The Fear" (formerly "I Don't Know") is great--it is, definitely, and since the trailer park-to-mansion music video (featuring choreographed group dancing and lots of balloons) has just debuted, now's as good a time as any to listen to the song, in all its melancholy and slight electro loveliness.

Will, 10 times is probably a more than fair chance to give a song! :D There's just something about how...delicate it is that gets under my skin. Even the sad little synth pulses are just barely there, like they might disappear with just a breath, just the slightest push.

I love the song. 2 listens was all I needed to be hooked. "I'm a weapon of mass consumption" -- brilliant line. And best of all, "Everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner". How freakin' true is that statement?! Lily's great.

There really are some excellent lyrics in the song, Yuri! I hope it does well for her.
