Guilty pleasure of the moment: Lily Allen’s ‘URL Badman’


I’ve written here previously about Lily Allen’s new album, and have mixed feelings about various elements about the album, but perhaps my favorite track at the moment is the bizarrely-themed “URL Badman.”

The song oscillates between airy beat-and-piano driven verses and dubstep-backing choruses. The lyrics are focused exactly where you’d expect them given the title, in the standard Lily Allen fashion.

Where 15 years ago artists were name-checking AOL and MCI, now it’s Vice and WordPress. What a world. Regardless, I find it awfully catchy.
