Would the LFL hate slowly be reverting, like it did for Honeymoon?

It seems so - I can now listen to IMF and Coachella and ENJOY them!

Honestly this was my favorite era with Lana since I actually followed what she did throughout it

 

Yeah same it was the first era that I was really active and also the first time I saw her live so it's very special for me


It seems so - I can now listen to IMF and Coachella and ENJOY them!

 

Coachella IS a cute song

I don't call it "Coachella" bc it sounds hella stupid lol, it's WIMM for me. But yeah it's such a cute song, I'm only over it because I probably listened to it about 5000 times when it first came out. I really like it. Now IMF? I fucking LOVE that song! It could be better, yes, but honestly it's such a bop, and such a mood too. I could have written that song myself with the fucking losers I always fall for :smokes3:

A concept:
Young and in Love (with strings)
Something Real
Lust for Life (“Blade Runner”/“art-song” Version)
Cherry (with slightly heavier guitars)
So Good (solo, with bridge)
White Mustang
The Next Best American Record
God Bless America
When the World Was at War
Tomorrow Never Came (ft. Father John Misty)*
Yosemite**
Heroin
Change
Get Free

Spoiler


*Didn’t happen but omg imagine him singing with Lana on TNC. I like Sean’s parts but omg. A concept tbh
**Not sure where Yosemite would fit but I put it after TNC bc she said they’re both reminiscent of ‘70s folk songs. Its spot may change if we ever get to hear it lol
***The version that was actually released; release this version as a single and actually promote it if the label wants a hit lmao

Weird idea but if WM is really about G-Greasy, then the line "the day your record dropped" confuses me. 

 

His most recent record was released in December 2017 and his one prior to that in December 2015, which do not coincide with when they may have dated?

 

or is she referring to a single release?

 

or am I overthinking this?

This song could be about him and another ex (like the one she sings about in BAR). We associated WM to G-Greasy because he drives a black Mustang (I think? At least, there are pictures of him with a black Mustang), we know they dated around that time, and the « And it’s not even that good » line she added in concert (when his album was out).
It’s never totally clear who is the guy in her songs (what songs could be about Francesco? Who knows?) The only song that is probably 100% about him is In My Feelings: it was added late in the mix and she is clearly talking about him moving on to Halsey.

she also made a G shape with her hands once while singing WM so I think it's mainly about him

 

listening to his new album & feeling some type of way about it doesn't really mean anything... just that she was interested in his music and probably lowkey crushing on him. not that they were dating or that they had even met at the time.

Spring is slowly coming in Canada... and LFL sure is perfect for that time of year.
I had not listened to LFL (song) for a long time, and it is such a beautiful hopeful sexy ballad.
This album really captures that weird time in a lifetime when you want to be happy, want to move away from your demons and yet can’t help but reproduce old patterns. The softness of Change, after the heavier production of the other tracks, is so soothing. And the album ends up on such a high note, with the chorus of Get Free, bursted with such energy, almost like a cry for help.
An underrated album (at least here).

She made the G shape at her No Vacancy show/Q&A while singing In My Feelings, she did threw shade at him while singing White Mustang in Denver tho

Just stopped by to say that although the structure of LFL (song)’s lyrics probably got fucked up when the song got re-arranged the melody and instrumental/production are both fabulous

As a whole i’d say lust for life is my least favorite lana album but it’s not a bad album tbh. It just lacks cohesiveness and it has 2 songs i skip, white mustang and coachella (which i’ve never had with lana’s albums, with the previous ones i literally like all the songs). But if it were more cohesive and certain tracks would just be bonus tracks it would be a great album, like, I really like all the songs except for white mustang and coachella. Also Change could’ve been a bonus track tbh, then the album would be somewhat cohesive. The Next Best American Record should’ve been on it but we all been knew that already. RBFY should’ve been on it but not really tbh because it would fit perfect on NFR and I really need it to be on NFR, otherwise I will riot.
