Lily Allen - 22

“When she was 22 her future looked bright. She’s nearly 30 now and she’s out every night. I see that look in her face, she’s got that look in her eye. She’s thinking ‘how did get here’ and wondering why?” A hump-day dance with lyrics to contemplate. Or not. A glass filled with daiquiris will let me dance without thinking about how “society says her life is already over.” Lily has a poppy way of letting us know it’ll all be alright. Society be damned. Let’s get on with the dance! We’re really 22 forever in our head anyway! Shoutout for the wonderful composition that starts out with a musical quote from the Carpenter’s (“so you say it’s not okay to be gay. Well I think you’re just evil.”) More humpday shoutouts include Who’d Have Known and Him – a really fun and thoughtful song about God (“I can’t imagine he’s ever been suicidal. His favorite band is Creedence Clearwater Revival”). Lily Allen
