i need to stop talking about lust for life ahahaha

 

but for the sake of 'discussion'...

what i was trying to say is that to me the first half of the album feels very messy, and imo from gba down it feels the most coherent (and i also just adore folk lana)

i know y'all dont like god bless america.. but the bridge and the way it blends into the chorus is heavenly

bpbp, tnc, and change are all beautiful

and then you've got heroin and get free, those don't need any explanation

 

i do want to apologise for what i said about in my feelings though, i'm sorry about that

ok i can agree with that. the first of the album feels like it doesn’t even belong with the second half.
i wasn’t trying to attack you i was just being shady :kiss: luv a fellow zelda fan

Hello everyone, this might be a really obvious answer but can anyone direct me to the video of this alternative Lust for Life video clip?

 

https://www.youtube....h?v=8teEYXT9D2g

 

I can't see it on Lana's channel on YouTube and it's not showing up in searches . . ? There's no mention of it on the trusty Lana wiki page either.


fame fame fame fame fame  Rick Knowles produced this signature and that's why there are stupid 'fame' echoes, just like on the The Next Best American Record

That was the "official audio" video that was out when the song came out. It probably got deleted when the official video came out.
it was cute, but was super slow (it was him and her looking at each other in slow-motion).

I've been on these cold meds and they're making me have these crazy dreams, but um ... is there such a thing as a studio recorded, acoustic version of Cherry? Or even a high quality live acoustic version of Cherry?

 

It was in my dream and it was actually fucking brilliant and folksy and amazing. It was like if Cherry was a Jewel song, but with Lana's vocals. I've had it in my head all day, and then I went and listened to the LFL version and wanted to neck myself because my dream version was so much better.

 

So just in case it actually exists and I just can't find it/forgot about it, I thought I'd ask. Does it exist or nah?

Oh Jewel! I remember her  :flutter:. 12 year old gay me would be bopping to her songs  :dance:  :grinds: . Didn't she also collaborate with Rick Nowels on many of her songs? 

 

OT: I don't think it exists, but if you ask @butterflies nicely, maybe he could make an awesome folksy remix?  :brows:

Cannot stand the collabs on this album. All of them sound extremely awkward, mismatched, and jarring.

TNC (with the original bridge) and Groupie Love sound good to me. Summer Bummer’s features add nothing of substance to the song imo; Carti’s adlibs are annoying background noise and A$AP’s part is nothing that you can’t hear in just about any other rap feature by anybody. It would’ve been better off had she added the higher background vocals and better production to the So Good demo. The verses on BPBP are good to great but the chorus falls extremely flat imo. I can appreciate that she took such a sad, lonely song and turned it into something more positive but something about “we gotta try every day and night” just sounds lazy tbh.

I'd listen to Stevie sing a McDonald's menu, but I agree. That song is really a microcosm of the entire album ... just messy, and could've been so much better with some small tweaks.

 

I love how we all revert to bitching about LFL when we can't think of anything else to say on the NFR thread. :smile3:

You know, this album was my shit for the couple months after it came out and now I never listen to it. Pretty much the only songs I ever listen to are White Mustang and Cherry. This has to be my least favorite album she’s released except maybe Paradise which I also never listen to anymore. They’re probably tied for me in last place.

Same lmao. All this being said, the last four songs on the album and maybe 13 Beaches I still consider to be highlights of Lana’s released discography (@ everybody I stan TNC fight me). With some tweaking and trimming of the track list it really could’ve stood up with/to BTD tbh. I love LFL but I’d only rank it above Paradise

Also, Get Free would be an original song rather than a Radiohead cover. :oic2:

 

ETA:

 

Agree wholeheartedly about Cherry. My dream version of Cherry is very folksy, almost a Fleet Foxes type of sound, with much more guitar.
