  1. Junkie Noir liked a post in a topic by Sitar in LANALYSIS: Relating Songs To Known/Assumed Relationships   
    Welcome to LANALYSIS, where we get real unhealthy in our obsessions and absolutely revel in it.

    This is a project I've been maintaining for a while now--Lana + Analysis...get it? The basic purpose is to relate every one of her songs (that's right, every last one of them) to her known and assumed relationships. Not a stone is left unturned. Privacy is violated. The fans rejoice. Mind you, it’s all pure speculation, but ~this is what makes us stans~

    It’s pretty long but an interesting read, if I do say so myself. I hope you enjoy it in all it’s updated glory, and I will continue to update as new information is revealed and new songs come out. I will also be adding pictures, sources, etc. Stay tuned!

    Let’s get started!



    EARLY RELATIONSHIPS (1985 - ~2005)



    LOCAL ROCKSTARS (~2005 - 2009)



    YOU MADE ME NICE FOR A WHILE (2009 - 2011)



    POST-BREAKTHROUGH (2011+)



    IN THE LAND OF DISCREPANCIES



    ADVANCED LANALYSIS



    IN SUMMARY..

    Lingering questions…
    - Who the fuck is K?
    - Who the fuck is Ray?
    - Who the fuck is Bill? Is Bill really K? Does Bill matter at all?
    - What significance do cars play? She mentions eight in total (white Corvette, white Pontiac, blue Chevy Nova/Chevrolet, Cadillac convertible, Mercedes, pickup truck, Lamborghini, Bugatti Veyron)
    - When was she/who was she with in New York City and New Jersey? Ditto LA? Most mysterious and pressing, her time in the South?
    - Did she have a fling with Bradley Soileau?
    - Did Chris C. matter enough to her for her to write songs about him?

    Assumptions Made:
    - Lana was a gogo dancer.
    - K is a drug dealer/murderer, dead or on death row.
    - Jimmy is her ex-fiancé, addicted to cocaine despite a Wikipedia page stressing how healthy he is, associated with Chevrolets.
    - Much of Sirens is about completely different relationships.
    - She fucked Bradley.
    - Mike controlled her career but their relationship wasn’t associated with anything fucked up like drugs or stripping.


    Thanks for reading! I crave both your feedback and theories! This remains a forum collaboration and I don't claim to have the final say on Lanalytical manners.

    For the sake of believability, I'm always hunting receipts, and currently:
    - The interview where she refers to "Yayo" as the prequel to "Video Games"
    - The interview where she describes "Video Games" as dealing with mutual sobriety in a relationship--her and her partner both staying clean.
    - The interview where she talks about meeting her boyfriend in rehab and being dazzled by his small-scale celebrity.

    So this man came down the line outside handing out these little baggies with Sky Ferreira magnets (lol) in them (it's like a picture from the YNTO video with the album title and release date) and free download cards to make up for the event saying that there would be CDs available. When I asked him why there weren't advance copies, he said it's because the album is an iTunes exclusive, not that she doesn't have any. He said we'd have to order physical copies from her site, and he seemed like he was with her team and not some uninformed venue employee...I didn't get to ask when it would be available, but I'm thinking November 5th.
     
    Anyway, sorry to everyone who expected the album last night/this morning, but it's realllly good and my download activates at midnight tonight if no iTunes links go up immediately.
     
     
    I heard Christine. Or at least thought I did.
     
    But guys she sANG "ONE", IT WAS INCREDIBLE. The crowd went from casual hipster to straight rabid mosh at that point. Basically she played the whole album live, then encored with a Lou Reed song (working on getting it on YouTube, she cried!), Everything is Embarrassing, and One. During EIE she was like in the crowd and I was going insane touching her face and hair and shit. Then she held my hand during 24 Hours so watch that become my favorite. Like everyone in the pit already knew that song, which was cool. Her voice sounds so good, definite improvement after her recuperation.
     
    She also had to restart EIE halfway through because she messed up and spilled tea on the electrical equipment, only to have it sopped up by her manager so that she could spill more in the same place during the very next song And that's what makes it a Sky show, I guess.
     
    I don't necessarily wanna run through the album yet but my favorites were definitely Boys, Omanko, Love in Stereo, and I Blame Myself. You're familiar with the last two but Boys is a great opener and super cute. It just sounds like the best of Sky songs do. OMANKO, however, is bananas. It was really sinister. In the merch line I heard people complaining about her more experimental songs (Omanko, which is like a wall of sound with weird sexy vocals; Christine, which is similar but more frenzied and she had to have a lyric sheet in front of her to sing it; and Night Time, My Time, which she professed to be her favorite and sounded kinda 80s goth meets Twin Peaks live), but I really loved them! So I'll leave it up to you guys.
     
    Also I MET HER. There are zero good pictures documenting it because we were rushed through like crazy (I mean she was literally just doing a signing at the merch stand) and the guy who took the pictures was a dick and wasn't even making sure that anyone was looking at the camera. Despite the rush, I took my moment to talk with her a bit and give her my gift/letters. LMAO basically I made her one of those hollow stash books out of this:
     
     
     
     
    But I pasted pictures of her over the author photo and taped her name over the author name and put Lisa Frank stickers on it. LUCKILY she has a good sense of humor and didn't find it to be as fucking weird as it is. I'll put up pictures of everything later. She was like really astounded, though, and called a bunch of people over to look at it. Douchebag cameraman was pissed at me for taking so long, hence no good pictures. She signed my copy of Ghost and told me that my name was cool BFF life
     
    Also I loved the opening act. And today I woke up puking like hell. Worth it! Loads of contributing factors to make this one of the best concerts I've been to. And now we wait for the album. I wish these 24 12ish hours would never end

  5. jimmy necco ur so fine liked a post in a topic by Sitar in How do you feel about Lana's leaked songs?   
    When they said prolific, they weren't kidding
     
     
    lola NO. We have EXACTLY ZERO Paradise demos and will probably never get any. I want fully produced versions of these to be on the album if only for the sake of seeing them developed fully. Also they're both really good and encapsulate what she's described so far and she said she's writing the album slowly so just no they must make the cut
     
    Those of you who were around when the demos for National Anthem and This is What Makes Us Girls leaked: Was it this dramatic?

  9. The Siren liked a post in a topic by Sitar in The 211 Songs   
    Lana recently caught a lot of attention from observant fans when she spoke in very precise terms about her leaked material. In an interview with The Guardian, she revealed the leaks this fanbase is so familiar with resulted from her computer being hacked in 2012 and exactly 211 of her unreleased songs being taken:
     
     
    Unreliable leak blogs have previously reported ludicrous numbers like 700, but something about the exactness of this number is worthy of consideration. Surely we must be approaching 211 unreleased songs, right? But the interview made the same mistake many of us probably make--he lumped in unhacked material with this batch of 211. Indeed, "Black Beauty" was procured by other means, as were a good amount of other songs. So I decided to make this list to try to clear up discrepancies and see if we can't guesstimate which songs we have popped up from this 211. All four early albums/EPs are exempt, as they are sort of confirmed to be not hacked.
     
    Songs not from the assumed hacked batch will be bolded and given sources, and troublesome discrepancies in red. Keep in mind this is all assumption-based! We do have to consider that Soundcloud finds were probably not within this batch because we (hopefully) would have gotten in better quality.
     
    Referring to this thread, we can see several songs surfaced in 2011 and therefore cannot be expected to be from this batch. However, certain songs were later provided in higher quality and likely from the hack (I believe the list is "National Anthem (Demo)", "Hundred Dollar Bill", "On Our Way", and "Money Hunny," correct me if I'm wrong), so if you have any more precise, non-incriminating information about sources (particularly songs under 2011 in that thread), let me know!

    Notes:
    *The origin of this demo, fan-titled "No Kung Fu," is unconfirmed. If anyone knows whether or not it came from the batch, alert me.

    What genre did Sky claim to invent? The only artist's sound she ever came for was, well, very clearly Diet Sky down to the vocal stylings. The Halsey thing was only visuals and also, really old. Some of you are clinging to that nonsense when really you're just mad about broken promises. You all made more sense coming out your neck calling her a lazy crackhead than the gymnastics about her credits.

    Got a light in your eyes
    I can see it
    Look into my mind
    Do you believe it?
     
    Try hard to remember the beach
    Blue water from the sea
    Hands all over me
    Tattoos, they were glistening
    It’s been so long since someone made me different
     
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Be free and alive
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Just feel alive
     
    It’s just you and the sun
    It’s just you and the sun now, baby
     
    You're gonna light up the skies
    I can see it
    You're God’s favorite child
    Boy, believe it
     
    Try hard to remember the day
    Sick as fuck and selling yay
    Diamonds and getting blazed
    Your tattoos still magnificent
    No longer high, but you’re not very different
     
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Be free and alive, baby
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Just feel alive
     
    It’s just you and the sun
    It’s just you and the sun now, baby
     
    I get so damn tired
    You set my soul on fire
    Ignite me, inspire
    Make me higher and higher
     
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Be free and alive
    Give heaven a try
    Be young and be wild
    Just feel alive
     
    It’s just you and the sun now
    It’s just you and the sun now, baby

    Demo lyrics in blue.


    You're no good for me
    Baby you're no good for me
    You're no good for me
    But baby I want you, I want you

    Diet Mountain Dew, baby, New York City
    Never was there ever a girl so pretty
    Do you think we'll be in love forever?
    Do you think we'll be in love?

    Diet Mountain Dew, baby, New York City
    Can we get it down, low-down and gritty?
    Do you think we'll be in love forever?
    Do you think we'll be in love?

    Baby put on heart shaped sunglasses
    'Cause we gonna take a ride
    I'm not gonna listen to what the past says
    I've been waiting up all night

    Take another drag turn me to ashes
    Ready for another lie?
    Says he's gonna teach me just what fast is
    Say it's gonna be all right

    Hit me my darling tonight
    I don't know why but I like it
    Gotta get back to the wild
    Give it up give it up, live it up live it up

    Diet Mountain Dew, baby, New York City

    Let's take Jesus off the dashboard
    Got enough on his mind
    We both know just what we're here for
    Saved too many times

    Maybe I like this roller-coaster
    Maybe it keeps me high
    Maybe this speed it brings me closer
    I could sparkle up your eye

    Hit me and tell me you're mine
    I don't know why but i like it
    Scary, my god, you're divine
    Gimme them, gimme them dope and diamonds

    Diet Mountain Dew, baby, New York City
    Never was there ever a girl so pretty
    Do you think we'll be in love forever?
