Lily Allen

 

For a songwriter, any strong emotions tend to be channeled into the song-writing process. This is what Lily Allen did when composing soothing track “Something’s Not Right” for the 2015 fantasy film Pan. The British artist took to Twitter on October 27 and shared the incredibly personal revelation to her followers: “5 years ago today I was admitted to hospital. 4 days later I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn’t make it. It’s unlike me to discuss this sort of thing so publicly but I wrote this song in his memory”.

 

She then provides a link to the song and gives people the opportunity to donate to Sands, a stillbirth charity. Not only the song’s title, but the lyrics  – “Something’s not right / ‘Cause there aren’t any stars in the sky tonight” – seem even more poignant since this touching admission. Listen to “Something’s Not Right” below.
