You’re so vain, I’ll bet you think this UGLY song is about you

So last night on FCUK FM, DJ's Tom and Poppy had a top ten "cuss word" songs. They were the top ten songs you would play to someone you wanted to say "bugger off" to, or something like that. (silly Brits)

Anyway, one of them was the Carly Simon, "You're So Vain."

However, almost right after that they played "Ugly" by Daphne & Celeste. It was an interesting contrast. If you've never heard this song, it's a poppy fast bubble gum heart attack song you'd expect to be sung by a cheerleadering group (a mean set of cheerleaders).

The lyrics include the following... (emphasis added)
You got eyes like a pig and your nose is big
And with hair like that you should be wearing a wig
Uncle fester remember him? I never knew that you had a twin
You can't disguise your googly eyes
In the miss ugly pageant you win first prize
Yo mama says you ugly -
You ugly!

U.G.L.Y you ain't got no alibi you ugly eh! Hey! You ugly!

Quite a contrast from Carly Simon.
