There's this song they've started playing at my work. i just noticed it a couple days ago. Now, the songs we get on our Play Network from corporate run the gamut from ultra bubblegum pop royalty to completely unknown artists singing in foreign languages. So i'm not usually surprised by the things i hear in my day to day retail soundtrack. But this particular song took me off guard. i'm not really sure why, because neither Common nor Lily Allen are what i would consider to be groundbreaking sociologists, and it's not like they are singing about something nobody has ever touched on before. It's not even a new song! But nevertheless, it struck a chord in me, for whatever reason, and it's now one of my new favorite songs.
