    "First" is the third and last single from Lindsay Lohan's debut album "Speak". The third single was originally going to be the song "Speak", with director Francis Lawrence according to MTV, but was changed so "First", with director Jake Nava, so it could tie-in to Lohan's film "".cite web | publisher=MTV.com | title=Lindsay Lohan, Usher, White Stripes, Gwen Stefani, Jesse McCartney, Pink, & more| url=http://www.mtv.com/#/news/articles/1500349/20050418/lohan_lindsay.jhtml | accessdate=18 April | accessyear=2005]

    Further information

    The song was included on the soundtrack of the 2005 film "", which also featured Lohan. The song did poorly in the United States and failed to chart, but performed better in many other countries, including charting in the top 10 both in Taiwan and Indonesia. It just missed out on making the top 30 in Australia by one position (#31). The song is of the pop-rock genre like most of the tracks from her debut. The song is about Lohan wanting to come before any other girl in her boyfriend's mind. In the context of the movie, however, it is taken as wanting to finish first in a car race. Some bloggers have interpreted the meaning of the song as Lohan announcing, in a double entendre to adult listeners, that she wanted to orgasm before her male partners during sex. However, when asked by David Letterman whether this was the case, she smiled slyly and said, "I actually prefer coming at the same time."

    Music video

    The Music Video was directed by Jake Nava. It shows clips from the movie . Lohan is also performing with her band as the song plays. The video made an appearance on TRL.
