Regal CDREG137: 25th September 2006
“Everything seems to look as it should, but I wonder what goes on behind doors”
2. Nan You’re A Window Shopper
“I walk into your kitchen, everything’s got a label, you’ve done your Christmas shopping, and we’re only in April”
“How could this been done, you’re such a smiling sweetheart, oh and your sweet and pretty face, in such an ugly way”
4. LDN (Warbox Original Dub)
“You might laugh, you might frown, walkin’ round London town”
You must have heard ‘LDN’ already right, it’s one of the finest moments of sun kissed Pop of the last few years, so it probably needs no introduction. What is new is the brilliant ‘Warbox Original Dub’ courtesy of Ashley Beedle. It’s wonderfully chilled out and features a sparkling extra layer of Organ that just radiates sunshine.
You also must have heard about ‘Nan You’re A Window Shopper’ a track that’s been doing the rounds as an mp3 all year. It’s probably mostly responsible for Lily’s reputation as a fearsome and hilarious lyricist. It’s great that it gets a proper release, no one should be without this track. It’s a parody of 50 Cent’s ‘Window Shopper’, where as he brags about how much money he’s got, Lily’s new lyrics are about her thrifty granny and references to things like “Strepsils” and “Bingo”.
‘Naïve’ is a cover of schoolmate Luke Pritchard’s band The Kooks’ hit single. I disliked the original but I love Lily’s angelic vocals and the warm Acoustic Guitar on this version.
