    Accents

    From Billie Joe Armstrong to Party Supplies, there has been a long history of Americans singing with a foreign accent, and for good reason. As much as Americans hate to admit it, songs are often better when sung in an accent. It may seem superficial and unfair, but let's face it, artists like Ellie Goulding, Adele, AlunaGeorge, Lily Allen, Belle and Sebastian, Cate Le Bon, Lykke Li, and King Krule are all a little more interesting because of the accent. Say what you will, but everyone knows girls like guys with accents, guys like girls with accents, and there's a charming appeal about the European way of speaking and singing that Americans will never be able to fuck with.
