The choreo line actually makes sense with the cut a rug now... I'm thinking the rest of the chorus will have names of diff dances from the 40s - 60s.. I'm so going to love this song so much

this is definitely going to be the best song of the album and might be my favorite lana song. idk I'm just connecting to it so much. Sad Girl is my favorite lana song but WTWWAW might beat it

Guys, it's "courses" not "corsets" I am 99% sure. Courses as in classes and lessons that's why she says to memorize them in the next line. Why would you memorize corsets?

Let me know what you think guys!!

This is tricky cause corsets are usually worn during different kinds of dances (like burlesque for example). But 'courses' does make more sense tbh

Yeah, I think this song is about rebellion in youth. Almost like she's telling us to be rebellious and dance even when the world gets ugly<3

i think its "curls and corsets"; as if they were time-pieces associated with a certain kind of femininity; memorized / immortalized into a song (or ~ manifesto ~), into cultural paradigms of female submission / passivity 

 

plus, corsets are known for being tight and repressive, and she later sings 'get loose'. it makes sense given all the talk about the women's marches, not to mention the ~ political ~ title

"When the world was at war before we just kept dancing."

 

I believe this is commentary on the rise of the counterculture, protest music that emerged in the 60s. Which pretty much came as result of war in Vietnam, Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, and the Sexual Revolution. Counterculture music also assisted in diversifying music the through the collapse of stereotypical barriers and freedom of expression. Paving the way for african american artists to become more mainstream and celebrated, and giving female artists more of a voice.

Overall not to mention our times feel like reflection of those times. Which makes sense why Coachella - woodstock in my mind also exists on Lust For Life.
