This seems very possible. She has roots in Upstate New York, which borders Vermont. She has to know people from there. Maybe old friends. That would make the most sense, otherwise it’s a very random state to single out haha
Stand By Man and Diet Mtn Dew are the bane of my existence that DMD live rendition is SO BAD I’m sorry to say it, the studio version clears. I feel like live versions should be better than studio versions but that’s not the case with DMD
Okay, so something has been on my mind for a while. All of the criticism of the setlist(s) had led me to this.
I’m going to attempt to analyze her setlist. Although it has evolved slightly, the general 18-20 song setlist has remain largely unchanged over the last few weeks.
I’m not here to declare that the setlist is perfect. In fact, the whole reason why I was inspired to write this is that so many people dislike the setlist that she’s had over the past couple of months.
No one can get into Lana’s head, like, for example, how personally confident she and her band may feel about certain songs and arrangements. My goal here is to give a subjective analysis of why certain songs have been chosen and how their order in the setlist may have significance.
I will be using the 20-song setlist from her recent show in Mississippi as a baseline, since it covers the majority of the songs she’s played on this leg. I will not be focused on songs she played as one offs, such as Florida Kilos and a few of the songs in Mexico, as they were unique as outliers.
Full disclosure: She skips songs I would have loved her to play and I do think one of the glaring missing tracks is Candy Necklaces, but I’m not here to dissect what she missed, instead, to analyze what she’s given us.
