I only watched the one video and i really like her voice. 
I did see her performance on SNL though, a lot of people thought it was a disaster (though at least she was actually singing)

Yeah, it was pretty awful but I've seen her perform both of those songs much better so I'm not worried.

She's an interesting character.

I've only heard one of her songs, but she's definitely an artist I'm going to look into in the future. :D

Yeah, SNL=no bueno. But I've seen many other live performances and she does awesome. I'm going to see her Feb. 9th and I'm so freaking pumped! Have you looked up Born to Die or Video Games? Blue Jeans? All very good songs.

It might just be me, but I really can't stand her. I mean, judging from her performances she seems like a wonderful person but her voice sets me on edge.

Anyone listened to her album?

It's pretty great.

I think her voice is great! It's different in a good way for me.  I want to check her album out  but haven't yet!

Her voice, the beats, and the strings!! have me hooked. Initially, I couldn't understand the "self-ganster styled Nancy Sinatra" description on her Wiki page, but now I hear it.

Here are my favs so far:

- Born To Die (look up an instrumental/karaoke version, and you'll love it more)
- National Anthem
- Dark Paradise
- Radio
- Summertime Sadness
- Without You


But really, the record is fabulous. I can see a lot of the songs on TV shows and in movie soundtracks.

My hubby just bought me the cd on Saturday, I've only listened to the first song and half of the second... so far..okay.  I'm not completely sold on the beats but I just have to give it more of a chance I'm sure! I love her voice though!

Just saw her perform and met here a couple of nights ago. She was pretty much flawless. And one of the nicest and coolest people I've met. She wrote, "Let's go get high sometime…" on my cd. What. Amazing.

You are too lucky. I suppose you went to the SF venue? How was it?? If you have any pics or vids, could you possibly share with us?

I hope she tours over here so I can meet her!

Saw some pictures that make me laugh out loud today.

I just thought they were funny. :D

I didn't get to take any videos because she was completely obstructed from my view point. And they also didn't allow pictures when we met her which is so stupid. My friend ran into her after the show at a restaurant and got to chat with her. She's just the coolest girl you've ever met.

I've listened to the album all the way through a few times now.   I am in LOVE with her voice.  I love how it's different from most people out there.  I was surprised by all the ...beats/bass but it really works.  My favorites are Dark Paradise and Radio.  I didn't realize there was a deluxe version until just now :( boo I don't have those three songs!
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: AisforAdrn on April 29, 2012, 10:38:13 am
OH MY GOD THOSE SONGS ARE THE BEST!!! Lucky Ones, Without You, and Lolita!!! They're amazing!! Without You is the best!

i'm sooooo into her. listened to her album a few days ago. "national anthem" is definitely a favourite. it's so fucking awesome. seriously, i'm in love with this song. radio is also getting me.
i love how her low voice is waaaaaay different from her high voice.
Title: Re: Lana del Rey

She's climbing up my list of faves rapidly!

Have you heard any of her unreleased material? There's, like, five albums worth floating around on the net lol.

This is one of my favourite tracks out of the unreleased stuff:

"Never Let Me Go"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8Rd69u2wZs

Quote
Hold me in your arms,
Love me like your best friends did
Promise I won't hurt you kid
Hold me really tight until the stars look big
Never let me go

All the world is ours
Like they say in Scarface kid
You can push your drugs and I can make it big
Singing CBGB's have a real good gig
Hey you never know

'Cause baby we were born to live fast and die young
Born to be bad and have fun
Honey, you and me can be one
Just believe
Come on

If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go
Just stay

We gonna go far
I can already taste it kid
LA's gonna look real good
Drive me in your car until the sky gets big
Never let me go

Send me to the stars
Tell me when I get there kid
I can be your Nancy, you can be my Sid
Get into some trouble like our parents did
Hey, they'll never know

'Cause baby we were born to be bad
Move on
Built to go fast
Stay strong
Honey, you & me and no one
Just believe
Come on

If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go
Just stay

I remember when I saw you for the first time
You were laughing
Sparking like a new dime
I came over
"Hello, can you be mine"
Can you be mine
Can you be mine...

If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Baby it's a sweet life
Sing it like a song
It's a short trip
Only getting one who can count on my love more than anyone
Never let me go

If you love me hardcore, then don't walk away
It's a game boy
I don't wanna play
I just wanna be yours
Like I always say
Never let me go

Boy, we're in a world war
Let's go all the way
Put your foot to the floor
Really walk away
Tell me that you need me more and more everyday
Never let me go
Just stay

I also think she's a fantastic songwriter. She can do no wrong in my eyes.
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: sarab on August 07, 2012, 04:18:25 am
I don't know about the writing.  Some of it seems repetitive and simple but who am I? I don't write songs.  I also think the profanity is unnecessary, then again it adds to her charm/persona.  I really do like her, don't get me wrong. but I wouldn't say the writing is stellar or anything near what vanessa does and how thoughtful vanessa is with her lyric choice.
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: Martin. on August 07, 2012, 04:29:14 am
Oh, she's definitely no Vanessa.

But for what she does as a pop artist, I think she's fabulous.

"Video Games", although full of cliches, is a fantastically well written pop song. It's actually one of my favourite of all time. She just captures the true essence of love perfectly with that song (for me).

that's funny, I had read/heard somewhere, I can't remember where and it was a few months ago, that she was only going to do the one album and that's it!

Aw no way.. That'd suck! She has too many unreleased tracks (and potential!) to just quit making music.

it was months ago, and I think it was just someone's blog, so the information could not be reliable (I hope it's not!)

She said early on that she couldn't see herself writing a second record because "everything I wanted to say, I said with this album". She also said recently in her Vogue interview she hopes to leave the music industry for film. :( Hope she changes her mind.

She's releasing a "paradise edition" of 'Born to Die' in November though and recording her version of "Blue Velvet" to coincide with her H&M campaign. Woohoo. :D
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: Fred_Saboya on October 19, 2012, 05:45:00 pm
I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PARADISE EDITION!
have you guys heard "body electric"? i'm dreaming about this song every night hahaha. it's awesome!
Title: Re: Lana del Rey

IT LEAKED! it's just brilliant.
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: sarab on November 08, 2012, 11:12:53 pm
is the paradise edition just more songs than the original album, or a different album altogether?
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: Martin. on November 09, 2012, 05:41:41 am
MY PUSSY TASTES LIKE PEPSI COLA!

'Born to Die: The Paradise Edition' includes 9 new tracks (including new single "Ride") on top of the 15 that came earlier this year. You can either buy the double album or you can buy 'Paradise' on its own. :)

I realllllly want the boxset, but at the very least I'll be buying the double CD. Can't wait to see her live either! :D
Title: Re: Lana del Rey
Post by: Fred_Saboya on November 10, 2012, 04:45:51 am
and some websites say that this is an EP, but i think it's too long for an EP.

american, cola, body electric and bel air already have me.
