Okay, so everyone seems to be hailing Lily Allen’s new song as a feminist anthem and if you wanna do that then that’s cool whatever it’s not for me to decide. But if you want a feminist song/video tackling misogyny and racism then you should definitely watch and listen to That’s Alright by Laura Mvula. Not only is it a good, catchy, singalong song that tells you it’s okay to be who you are, but the video itself demonstrates how black people in the media and entertainment industries are used as props, simple entertainment for white people.
I especially like when she gets to the chorus and she’s singing “Who made you the centre of the universe?” at the all-white audience. A really brilliant yet underrated song and video.
OMG I LOVE HER SOUND LITERALLY FROM THE FIRST NOTE
Way hey and away we go Donkey riding, donkey riding Way hey and away we go Ridin’ on a donkey.
Was you ever in Quebec Launchin’ timber on the deck? Where ya break yer bleedin’ neck Ridin’ on a donkey!
I realized suddenly that my American friends - of whom there are many of you - have almost certainly never heard this song. So I share it with you. Because this is the sort of thing I learned in gradeschool and sang in camp.
