Only going to note the Black Beauty / White Mustang parallels of horse (heroin?)-based symbology

 

Yess, "the wickedest man in the world", obsessed with sex and control, addicted to heroin and cocaine.

 

I think you'll find there's a bit more to him than that  :crossed:

Hehe sure there is, but it seems Lana has had enough of his crazy lifestyle.

I believe you are your own doorway to an understanding of something greater. I never think of how I can get bigger or better, I just think, How can I go deeper? How can I know myself more so that I’m a clearer conduit for whatever else is in the ether? Meditation’s a big part of my life. I was already doing that when I was young, thinking about what I wanted to do, things I wanted to manifest.

I've read every single post on this thread and damn, am I impressed with all of your perspectives and analyses. Thanks to you guys, especially @DeadAgainst and @litewave, I've come to appreciate Lana's artistry even more. Thank you so much!

 

Which album do you guys think is the "richest" in terms of meanings?

 

And what do you think she'll bring to the table for future albums? Like, what else do you expect her to write about?

In hindsight I have come to view her first three major albums loosely as a trilogy: Born to Die seemed to emphasize the beginning, the paradise, and the tragic fall that followed. Ultraviolence was deep in the fallen state, especially dark and manic-depressive. And in Honeymoon she seemed to find some peace again, with re-integration of complementary polarities.

After this personal analytic-synthetic journey, she emerged reinvigorated from her inner world into the outer world with a more socially/politically conscious Lust for Life. I never know what she will do next, but it seems that her future moves will be influenced by what is going on in the world.

Lana Del Rey = R. Daneel Olivaw, synthetic guardian of humanity, on the moon. This is what i gather.

Why? Who? Me?
 
I was casually listening to BTD today; and for the first time the beginning of the song really resonated with me. I started to wonder like "who is she talking to?" and "what is the significance?" 
 
I'm curious to know if anyone here has also wondered about that? If so, how do you interpret it?
 
 
 
PS.
Some of you might think of this as a silly question and would probably say that "it's not that deep," which is fine if you do. But I really enjoy thinking about this kind of stuff, especially because Lana herself had said that "they judge me like a picture book, by the colors like they forgot to read". And this is a LDR forum after all. Sorry if I seem like a Graham to you  :hooker:

A male voice responds to her but I can't hear it clearly.

 

I always thought she was talking to God, asking why she was chosen for carrying a burden or being in a situation.

Do you know at which point you hear that male voice? I've been trying to listen closely and the only male voice I can hear is this sampled piece (Mountain's Long Red). Is it the sample?

 

Interesting to note is that the "goddamn"-sample was used in a demo version of BTD.
