340 – Lily Allen – The Fear (2008)
Written by Lily Allen and Greg Kurstin
Produced by Greg Kurstin
Label – Regal
The personal complexities of chasing pop stardom and consumerism are perfectly conveyed by Allen on this poignant electro pop single. The duality between the barbed, sarcastic and street smart know all being brought down by insecurities of body shape and low self esteem reflect the singer’s personality and strike a chord with the shallow manifestation of post millenium celebrity. It’s a modern classic in every sense.
