Lily Allen – Going To A Town

If there’s a song to cover at this direst of political hours, it’s this one. Going To A Town by Rufus Wainwright is so painfully resonant at this hour that we almost wish it hadn’t been written, that’s how much the words slice us with their razor-sharp accuracy. And who better to match the original than Lily Allen, cutting through this ridiculous political nexus as if she’d written the words herself, proving to us that soft-vocal but hard-line Allen is our favourite side of her. “I’m so tired of America,” she sings with a knowing sadness as tears prick our eyes. Yeah, mate. You and us both.
