How exactly does one 'Party like it's 1949' ? 

What is the significance of 1949 is that when Lolita was set? I couldn't find anything on wikipedia

 

Well have you ever heard "party like it's 1999"? I assume she was playing off of that but making it more retro to fit her aesthetic.

I was going to post a YouTube video of Prince's song "1999", but then I remembered, oh yeah, it's Prince. :nopartylikeits1949: :noparty:

 

[Interesting and unrelated side note: Prince somehow is able to not allow ANY of his recordings on YouTube. Go ahead and try to find one Prince studio recording on YT.]

Someone please look at this for me,

In my mind it's just that there is no way its "Blue LA Carte Docks", it just doesn't sound like it, plus that doesn't even make any sense....

I think it's 'Blue lake, charter docks"

New lyrics:

Carry me up them stairs

With my white socks on

And my pretty song
Like my blue nail polish
What is all this?

You said of the miss upstairs
Don't be scared

Daddy dearest

You know how I like to take trips

Pops first stops at the K-Mart
Buy me my peach lipgloss
Cigarettes and lollipops
For our trip across the USA

We're gonna party like it's 1949
We're in the Pontiac from July to July
Gonna see it all before he says goodbye
Gonna party like it's 1949

 

Carry me up the stairs

With my white socks on

And my blonde hair long
You like my pin-up bodice

And the solace

That comes with the midnight air

And my icy stare
 

It's the clearest

When it's me and him alone

He's stops, he talks about all the ways he used to

Dinerettes and soda pops

For our trip across the USA

 

We're gonna party like it's 1949
We're in the Pontiac from July to July
Gonna see it all before he says goodbye
Gonna party like it's 1949

 

Daddy likes Blackpool,

Pleasure beach and road stops,
Me, I like the Swiss Alps souvenir gift shops
Late night, midnight, radio show talks
Him and me, a big jailbreak

 

Ponytail and lollipops

Dinerettes and sodapops

New blue bathing suit

Ruched tops and Cadillacs

Blue LA Carte Docks
Hopscotch, hot talk
Alabama hard knocks
Motel brass locks.

 

I'm completely in love with this song. The final version is so beautiful. I always loved the first version, and this is so lovely to hear. The new lyrics are fabulous too.. "my blonde hair long." So Lizzy!

This song is also very close to my heart as it's an "Our Song" with someone very, very special to me. :bliss:

I hope someone pulled another "You're Gonna Love Me", because that song was cut towards the end when it first leaked, and it took a while to get the full version. I'd be upset if this is the only version out. It sounds like it is missing the last chorus.

I dont Mary Jailer songs. Because they're boring to me. But 1949 was ALWAYS the one I loved. So to have a studio with a better backing of instruments is great. I love both.

The new version is so amazingly good! I would literally kill for an album with properly produced versions of songs like 1949, Elvis, You're Gonna Love Me and Axl Rose Husband. The lyrics and melodies in these songs are some of her absolute best.

Omg I literally am crying about this studio version, it's even more beautiful than the old version  :defeated:  :defeated:  :defeated:

Some of Lana's best lyrics here too, wish she would write more songs like this 

 

Too bad it cuts off at the end though  :deadbanana:  :deadbanana:  :deadbanana:

This is def not the instrumental I would've imagined for 1949 but I adore it. It's almost a sad, nostalgic sound in the intro. Sooo good.

"It's the clearest

When it's me and him alone

He stops, he talks about all the ways he used to

Dinerettes and soda pops

For our trip across the USA"

 

- i hear her sing something after "all the ways he used to.." i think it's "all the ways he used to have it all" but it's a bit muffled
