    In my mind Warrior is her best album because it includes Past Lives, Only Wanna Dance With You, Supernatural, C'mon...But I guess Cannibal is the most overall quality release

    It's available
     

     
    Notable:
    - Seemed hesitant about B-sides part 2 until she saw that there were sooo many questions about it and then she said "I'll get it out somehow"
    - She did a song with DIIV that will apparently never be released hmm
    - I asked about Pretty Dull bc this is my mission and she said that she does want to release it and it has some of her favorite lyrics that she's written
    - If she were to sing an As If song live it would be 99 Tears that's kinda cute
     
    OMG it was on this system where viewers voted up questions and like top of the queue was a question about old material like Cobra with the most votes and then right before she got to it IT DISAPPEARED
     
    Seems like full speed ahead with B-sides part 2 hopefully

    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.

    I like it! Esp "Not the Stars". Smh it's not weak it's just a different genre.
  7. blackenedrussianpoetry liked a post in a topic by Sitar in The Ocean   
    The extra lyrics and gentler vocals make this song suddenly feel so intimate I can't help but think of this and Wayamaya as two sides of a coin. I can just imagine her and her man driving to the Jersey Shore but pretending they were going Hawaii and coming up with their alter egos Lana and Ray This also really clarifies a lot of the ocean references in other songs, too; of course she created such a strong association with this first love who is still in her stage name today
     
    I also never really got the "Ray and his girls" lyric but with all this in mind it kinda makes it seem like he's telling her about this fantasy they've created together.

    She was crazy, her name was Katie.

    I really love Elvis myself, and this song was one of the first ones I listened to on YouTube when delving into her unreleased work. Holds a special place in my heart.
     
    I currently have it under "K", though "/

    Platinum and vale acrylics
    Skim the paper for the critics
    Baby's breath and Elvis lyrics
    On the copper bar

    Late in motel lounges singin'
    Spotlight on the band is swingin'
    Chateau Marmont memories fading
    Hope is very far

    Elvis, where are you when I need you most?
    White kind of sequin jumpsuit ghost
    Pick me up and make a toast
    Champagne in the air

    Tipping back his head, relaxing
    Thank you very much and I'm laughing
    All my chantilly lace catchin'
    Baby, on the chandelier

    Sweeping scents and blue hydrangea
    Summer hail and summer stranger
    Baby, he's in constant danger
    Help is very far

    "You look like a Florida native
    Are you?" I said, at the rate of
    Slow molasses from the state of
    Vermont with a Southern drawl

    Elvis, where are you when I need you most?
    White kind of sequin jumpsuit ghost
    Pick me up and make a toast
    Champagne in the air

    Tipping back his head, relaxing
    Thank you very much and I'm laughing
    All my chantilly lace is catchin'
    On the chandelier

    He said he'd come to welcome, warn me
    Just your diamond to adorn me
    Come to be and see the one and only
    For my final year
    Well, thank you

    Elvis, where are you when I need you most?
    White kind of sequin jumpsuit ghost
    Pick me up and make a toast
    Champagne in the air

    Tipping back his head, relaxing
    Thank you very much and I'm laughing
    All my chantilly lace is catchin'
    On that chandelier
    It's catchin' on that chandelier
    It's catchin' on that chandelier
    Where are you when I need you most?

    The No Kung Fu "Yayo" shits all over the album version.

    Further we dream
    Why don’t we go to Coney Island?
    One day among, the ballad sung
    The record spins blue '50s song
    The veranda looks ocean ???
    Neon palms sway
    What’s happening?
    Where did we go?
    The Jersey Shore was long ago
    As with our hopes
    And Ocean Grove
    And so I bid you farewell

  21. Embach liked a post in a topic by Sitar in Create A Lana Ep (~8 Songs) From Unreleased And Demo Tracks   
    There was a period before Lana was famous--back when she was feeling that rejection, I think an interview said around the time Ke$ha was number 1--that she was writing pop songs (quite well, I might add). I tried to imagine this coming to fruition. Maybe she'd emphasize her "dangerous" side a little more, or go by just plain LANA in the spirit of other pop stars. Thus was born the DADDY ISSUES EP!
     

     
    1. Kinda Outta Luck
    2. Ooh Baby
    3. Hey Lolita Hey
    4. Daddy Issues (I like to imagine this with clearer vocals and simpler production)
    5. Dum Dum
    6. Gogo Dancer
    7. She's Not Me
    8. Backfire
    Bonus:
    9. Match Made in Heaven
    10. Paris

    This is not about a one-night stand. This "king of the industry players" was obviously helping her career with some perks on the side. Or maybe he was getting some perks on the side before he decided to help her career. Jet-setting to Europe a lot (her three-year "world tour"), trying to get that success. You and me, on a spree, taking over.
