“Lust For Life deals with themes that’ll be familiar to Lana devotees; faded Hollywood glamour, skewed Americana and terrible love. But this time around, Lana is even more grandiose than usual, with lush, sweeping orchestration draped elegantly over each of the album’s 16 tracks.

I can't believe she decided to make a video for WM which was a totally flop and not for Cherry. Lana pls :oprah3:


Except she didn't even make a WM video, just repurposed one for a cut song

I've been on a work field trip where we have to take a boat over to site across the river,  and I'm always hearing Lust for Life in my head. The video should have been in a boat,  riding off into the sunrise

Like I know everyone hates on Coachella bc of the lyrics or w/e. But I kinda like how present it was, and how selfless the song can be. It's been a year since that incident of Otto Warmbier coming back home, and I guess it tugs at the heartstrings, in a sad, hopeful way. We need more hopeful anthems.

This album did not age well. I don't really listen to the songs on it anymore, which makes me sad because I quite liked it at first.

I hate Tomorrow Never Came the lyrics are boring, Sean can't sing, and it's boring :/ 

 

"Hey, what you thinking?

Penny for your thoughts
Those lights are blinking
On that old jukebox
But don't ask me why
Just swallow some wine"

 

these are some of the worst lyrics on a lana track

Her least good album (Lana doesn't have bad albums).
However, it does have her highest heights (Groupie Love, Get Free, Heroin) but it also has her lowest lows (Roachella, BPBP, In my Feelings)

I still use:
Love
Lust For Life (depending on my mood)
Cherry
Summer Bummer
Groupie Love
God Bless America
When the World Was at War
Tomorrow Never Came
Heroin
Change
Get Free

When I’m in the right mood, BPBP comes off as a really touching track to me :(
Sometimes I feel like I can really feel the pain in her voice when she sings the verses (which is quite obviously about Barrie)
The chorus “we’re just beautiful people with beautiful problems” sounds even more heartbreaking/powerful within the context of the demo’s lyrics.
“And red are the color of your eyes when you drink too much
You pack your place, you pack a punch”
Followed by
“But we’re just beautiful people with beautiful problems”
It’s so bittersweet
:(

I actually think its numbingly tragic how Stevie sings:
"Blue is the color of the shirt of the man I love
here's hard at work, hard to the touch

but warm is the body of the girl from the land he loves
my heart is soft, my past is rough

then it still all goes back to

. . . but when I love him get a feeling something close to like a sugar rush"

This has become my least favorite album by Lana just because it has the first song that I genuinely hate to the point of not listening to it (tomorrow never came). I thought I liked it when I first heard it, but now Sean's vocals sound like nails on a chalkboard and that stupid 'swallow some wine' line makes me cringe into oblivion. The whole reason I discovered I hated it was because I was trying to make a video for it. I could not finish it because I was so annoyed by the song.

Personally, I think TNC would be fine if Sean didn’t sound so damn goofy. When I first heard “hey, whatcha thinkin” I laughed out loud

the only songs i hardly ever listen to are the political songs, and that isn't bitterness because they're political, they're genuinly bad songs

I'm so glad to finally see other people realise how bad of a song TNC truly is. I remember getting slandered into oblivion for being one of the first to call it out (along with @hornymoon and @SGF ), we've gained so much more members since then! Well done guys. Together we WILL defeat the evil that is sean lennon :pray2: :lange: :illumilana:
