    Started out just putting a few of her songs up on MySpace she's now had well over 2million listens and is getting radio time.

    She's got a BRILLIANT voice and her songs are gorgeously summery. Check out her MySpace , listen to Smile, it's a lovely song.

    Expect to hear her in your own countries before long.

    You heard it here first. I'll put a note in my diary to double check if I have heard of her in six months time. Isn't it summer for you now? Or are you saying she will have taken over by August?

    She'll be big, and too right to, she's a talented lady.
    Check her out.

    Didn't you say the same thing about the Arctic Monkeys?

    I listened to it, and it didn't sound like anything I want to hear more often.

    Lily sounds like a cross between Nelly Furtado and Jem...with more expletives. Cute though...

    when I see you cry... it makes me smile...

    Heard it about 10 times on the radio and they start airing a video.

    Wouldn't have thought that.

    When I see you cry... it makes me smile...

    Edit: I've seen the video from the arcitc monkeys, yes indeed, I have. The only reason I remember it, it's because it's a little glimps into foreign customs of foreigners. Very foreign, really.

    Edit: I actually mailed that link to a special someone who I wouln't mind to see cry.

    It's a song by Lily Allen played very often on Norwegian radio (at least on the channel I listen to). Isn't LDN short for London?

    I don't know about you people, but when you hear a song on radio, radio, tv, metro, bus, cars passing by, supermarket, and everywhere, almost 24 hours at day, after the second day I'm sick of that song, and no matter how good the song/artist is, so much airing makes the song something that hurts just to listen it; examples: this girl Allen has been on air for about 2 weeks already and there are even mobile tones; Paris Hilton and her new caprice, now she... sings; Hips don't lie... I want to kill Shakira.

    Hahaha, I just heard a Lily Allen song yesterday for the first time and I couldn't stop laughing. She sounds like she just walked off the set of "Eastenders" or "Grange Hill". I have this vision in my head that she's really just Susan Tully or Wendy Richard trying to start a music career. Classic.

    But seriously, the song was terrible. Most of it was just talking, except for the chorus.

    Well what do you expect mate, she's from London.

    You sound like my dad when I have Eminem or something on 'what's this about, it's just talking', haha :lol:

    I'm no Lily Allen fan, either. I'll take Motörhead over that nondescript nonsense anyday. Hell, Lemy's probably better-looking, too! :shake:

    Barmy, you were prescient... my favorite radio station named Lily Allen "Artist to Watch" for January, in advance of release of her CD. I find her stuff catchy and clever, and a nice change from the usual stuff I listen to. Good call! :thumb:
