Best Single of 2009

Sep 05 2009 Published by under Music


The best single of 2009 is Lily Allen’s “The Fear,” hands down.  She manages to combine the post 9/11 paranoia of the last decade, consumerism, trash culture, our obsession with fame and wealth.  It’s all summed up in the unbelievably line, “I don’t know what’s right and what’s real any more / and I don’t know how I’m meant to feel any more.”  This says more about the post 9/11 world’s total confusion and identity crisis than everything U2 and Bruce Springsteen produced in the last 10 years.

Amazing song, and the only thing that was worth hearing this year on VH1.
