Tuesday Tunes: Lily Allen & hip hop, my weaknesses

Lily Allen is amazing. She's cheeky, hilarious and has a total potty mouth. One of my favorite songs is "Who'd Have Known" because being in the awkward beginning part of a relationship is pretty much the only part of the relationship I'm ever in... 
[Ignoring the fact that the video is high up on the list of most unconfortable things I've ever seen. Kidnapping Elton John is no good!] It contains the following lyrics...

I haven't left you for days now,
And I'm becoming amazed how,
Your quite affectionate in public,
In fact your friend said it made her feel sick,
And even though it's moving forward,
There's just the right amount of awkward,
And today you accidentally,
Called me baby.

Adoooooorable! Even though it's sometimes so irritating trying to figure out what the F is going on,  the best part of any relationship is always the beginning where it's still new and exciting. The song is sampled from this one, but I think it's better than the original. Just when I didn't think I could like this song any more, T-Pain and Wiz Khalifa sampled it! What could go wrong with this scenario!?

Wiz Khalifa shares this insight...
Too many thirsty girls up in this club for me to
Leave here with one of them
That's why I call her
And you'll be right at home waiting for me
iPhone plugged in the wall, just waiting for me
Club closed at 6, left around 4:30
Yeah so by the time I'm at your crib...
(It's 5 o'clock in the morning)
And you yawning, but I've been drinking all night and I feel like performing
With you in the bedroom

Thank you, kind sirs, for clearing up how these things are supposed to work. I have been going about finding a decent guy all wrong this whole time! From now on I'll be waiting by the phone all night so after he's is done with all the other girls, he can come pass out at my house after a performance of some sort. Noted. And for the record, this song is always in my head even though I think the message is shady...and as much as I try to hate it, I just like autotune. 

But not all hope is lost for my pal Lily! Common is here to save the day and make me have faith that two of my favorite things, Lily Allen and hip hop, can indeed come together in a good way. Anybody in an astronaut suit pretty much wins in my book. That, and Common is a total dream boat:

 Am I the only one who thinks that Wiz & T-Pain kind of ruined a good thing? Am I just too sensitive because I've dated a lot of really dumb guys in my life? Do I even want to know the answer to that question?
