出生於倫敦的莉莉艾倫,父親是英國著名喜劇演員凱茲艾倫(Keith Allen),
從小聽著龐克與雷鬼音樂長大的莉莉,在朋友眼中一直是個怪怪才女,
共計換過十三所學校,之後選擇在十五歲離開校園、自我進修。
有別於時下談情說愛的流行音樂,喜歡挑戰權威的莉莉,把她自身對前男友分手後求和的「恥笑」,
創作出單曲《smile(笑笑)》,僅靠網路下載就登上全英單曲榜第13 名,
實體發行後順利空降單曲榜冠軍,更獲選為滾石雜誌2006年十大單曲。

莉莉艾倫直言不諱與原創性十足的音樂創作震撼英國流行樂壇,
不但讓專業樂評對她的首張專輯【好膽ㄇㄞˋ走」好評不斷,全球累計銷售更大破250萬張!
前衛不羈、特立獨行的搞怪風格讓她成為英國新生代風格偶像;
但她率真卻又刻薄、元氣十足又帶點冷嘲熱諷的筆觸卻也引來無數後輩抄襲和狗仔惡意中傷,
然而兩年多來的惡意攻擊並未將她擊倒,反倒成為她創作的最佳靈感。

2009年嗆辣小公主再出發,新專輯【干我屁事It's Not Me, It's You】
延續她一貫引人發噱的歌詞特質與顛覆觀點,再度解剖玩味現今社會裡的荒誕不經!
包括諷刺上流社會狗仔傳媒與名人間交互消費,大賞種族主義與性別保守者兩大耳光,
大書特書社會黑暗現實與性別失衡、探討鑰匙兒童與電視晚餐,諷刺男人自大卻又早洩、
遭逢情變卻又拒絕認清以及討論少女過早浪漫情懷…等作品。
天使的歌聲、活力的節奏、鮮明的色彩,莉莉艾倫將自身體驗與對社會病態的寫實觀察化為歌詞與旋律,
傳遞更深層辛辣的社會評論、刻畫出寫實人生的生活百態,強而有力的挑戰每個保守世代的感官神經!

 

 

 

 

 

The Fear【英國BBC單曲冠軍!!】

I wanna be rich, and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever, I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and fuck loads of diamonds
I heard people die while trying to find them
And I'll take my clothes off, and it will be shameless
'Cause everyone knows that's how you get famous
I'll look at the sun, and look in the mirror
I'm on the right track, yeah I'm on to a winner

I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
And I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

Life's about film stars and less about mothers
It's all about fast cars and cussing each other
But it doesn't matter 'cause I'm packing plastic
And that's what makes my life so fucking fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it's not my fault, it's how I'm programed to function
I look at the sun, and I look in the mirror
I'm on the right track, yeah we're on to a winner

I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
And I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

Forget about guns, and forget ammunition
'Cause I'm killing them all on my own little mission
Now I'm not a saint, but I'm not a sinner
And everything's cool as long as I'm getting thinner

I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
And I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
And when do you think it will all become clear?
'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

 

下面推薦的兩首則是我這次專輯特別喜歡的兩首,
也許這種歌詞也是可以用輕快的唱法敘述給別人吧。

 

 

Fuck You

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we're so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

So you say
It's not okay to be gay
Well I think you're just evil
You're just some racist who can't tie my laces
Your point of view is midieval

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
And it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Do you get
Do you get a little kick of being slow minded?
You want to be like your father
It's approval your after
Well that's not how you find it

Do you
Do you really enjoy living a life that's so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where your soul should be
Your losing control of it and it's really distasteful

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we're so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

 

 

22

When she was 22
The future looked bright
But 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 I get here
And wondering why

It's sad but it's true how society says
Her life is already over
There's nothing to do
And there's nothing to say
Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

She's got an alright job
But it's not a career
Wherever she thinks about it
It brings her to tears
Cause all she wants is a boyfriend
She gets one night stands
She's thinking how did I get here
I'm doing all that I can

It's sad but it's true how society says
Her life is already over
There's nothing to do
And there's nothing to say
Til the man of her dreams comes along
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

It's sad but it's true how society says...
