The beat in the production during the chorus reminds me so much of 'Hotline Bling.' I can't be the only one who thinks this lol

I listen to the song just because of the pre-chorus
 
Shake it up, throw your hands up
and get loose, cut a rug
Lean into the fucking youth
Choreo, we just want the fucking truth   :sluttybunny:  :yesnod:  :grinds: 
The way she says CHOREO makes me wet

I hear "Oh my God, dizzy from loving you" rather than "Did it from loving you" - anyone else? The latter doesn't make sense to me.

Apple Music has the most inaccurate lyrics out there. Idk who the fuck puts them down, but he or she should be fired.

Tbh. Like so many songs of different genres have the same issue. It's tacky

i would like this song if the title wasnt so wordy and if she didnt say "before" in the chorus. it would have been so smooth if it was "when the world was at waaaaar, we just kept dancing" i cringe every time she jams "before" in there

Wait, does she not say "dizzy from loving you"? :rip: :rip: :rip:

 

Anyway – this is the best song of the record. Fact!

I still believe it's courses rather than corsets, as in dance lessons these girls are taking. Corsets can't be memorized "in a little song" whereas dance steps from a choreography or a popular dance can. I mean, both the pearls/curls, and the recurring vintage dance motifs seem to indicate a kind of ball or gathering going on where these women would participate. Beside, corsets weren't really in vogue during the period Lana seems to be referencing (early 1940s).

Finally, I can't hear the 'T' at the end of the word, it actually sounds like courses to me.

Not sure if I dreamt this at some point but I think I recall Lana singing "we just want the fucking truth, told by the fake news" - and now it sounds more and more like "fake news"

The lyrics remind me so much of a Tori Amos song! Who's with me on this?

 

I mean there is something random and unclear about their lyrics, but there is deep meaning.

Lana did not say fake news. I'm pretty sure its Fuehrer, which makes much more sense. Told by the fake news.. LOL

I thought she said "told by the furies" as in the ancient deities from Greek mythology.
This is what they basically did
"Their task is to hear complaints brought by mortals against the insolence of the young to the aged, of children to parents, of hosts to guests, and of householders or city councils to suppliants - and to punish such crimes by hounding culprits relentlessly"

I mean it's a cool idea in my mind but I don't really seeing it being that. Sometimes I hear furies sometimes I don't. I feel "frightened" is more probable.
