    She’ll need to release a volume of standards and classics every year or two for her to even begin to cover all of the amazing songs she’s sound perfect covering.

    sheridan posted california dreamin' by the mamas and papas on his story after hinting working with lana again so i think it's safe to say she's covering that song!

    Those are the original lyrics in the aria. While the song is a jazz 'standard', The Gershwin Estate actually still wields and exercises an extremely rigorous hold over the rights and performance of the song, which shouldn't/can't be changed without their express permission. It's much easier for artists to just adhere to Gershwin's original lyrics, so most covers include this line.
     
    For example - when Sublime used the opening melody of the song they wanted the lyrics to be "Doin' time, and the living's easy" - the request was denied and the use wasn't granted until they changed it back to "Summertime and the livings easy".
     
    You're correct however, the word "Mammy" has fallen out of contemporary use and is now considered offensive - it should not be used outside its original historical use.

    I am usually against covers but this was amazing and lowkey better than 90% of the things she released in the last years.

    just had the thought that lana seems to be leaning into her blanche dubois feels in this song, and that the Interview mag video also has such strong tennessee-williams-anti-heroine vibes.

    If she’s gonna be serving like this, then the American classics album itself will be a classic sheeeesh

    So much depth and soul in this amazing cover. I was left starved after NFR, but now I'm full to the brim. Can't wait to hear the whole record.

    I looooooove how she sounds her vocals are incredible! a huge fan of the back up vocals too! <3
     
    my only criticism is that realistically im not sure how often ill come back to this right now, simply bc this is such a summer song and here in the UK we're deep in the trenches of fall/winter haha. but once it warms up a little this'll be on my spring/summer playlist for sure! she sounds so good and it's SO refreshing to hear her push her vocals more, especially after NFR where her vocals were much more relaxed

    Yes Yes YES. I still want Johnny Guitar the more I think about it too. It would suit her so well. (Also to anyone out there that hasn’t seen the Joan Crawford starring “Johnny Guitar” go watch it NOW)

    Would love to see hear her cover “My Man”, the lyrics are already basically a BTD Lana song.

    i would so die for her to do a studio version of her "The End Of The World"by Skeeter Davis cover. SHE SNAPPED SO HARD WITH THIS GERSHWIN COVER AND WITH THE VIDEO ENDED US ALL
