Did anyone ever make a studio version of I Must Be Stupid and Hey Blue Baby? I need those to add to my NFR to make an expanded deluxe version :crai:

i liked them too! the tracks complimented her voice so much. personally, i think that they would probably suit Chemtrails better but i'd love to hear them in the context of Norman as well :flutter:


strong like a tree but the unlucky one

I remember when I first heard The Greatest, and I thought she sings „all the life dreams almost gone” and it got me in tears because I was in the winter of my life, and then i read it’s actually „the livestream is almost on” and I felt dumb

It felt like it was an album I'd grown up on and had known for at least a decade on the first listen. The whole time period/summer around this album's release is so nostalgic for me, I think it'll be my forever favorite.

 

Same!! It so quickly became like an old favourite, like I'd known it for ages yet at the same time kept getting better with every single listen! 

 

Definitely my favourite Lana album. I listen to it endlessly, and when I listen I pretty much always listen to the whole thing. No skipping! 

 

It's not only my favourite Lana album but my favourite album from anyone, ever!

This album has some of her most beautiful songs and some of my all-time favourites :flutter:

Venice Bitch will always be a top5 for me, along with The Greatest / FIILY.

recently, I’ve rediscovered Happiness Is a Butterfly 🦋 

i just love how special this album is, how timeless it is.

her best line tbh :xcry: don't feel dumb - i found this on genius:

 

It’s also no coincidence that “live stream” is a homophone of “life’s dream.” This play-on-words is a recurring motif for Lana, not only in relation to the dreamlike death theme that permeates this song, but also being present in “Venice Bitch” in the line “Live stream (life’s dream), I’m sweet for you.” Whereas the latter instance might be interpreted as a kind of soulmate, in this song the “life’s dream” would most likely be the narrator’s life flashing before their eyes at the point of death.

 

so... back 2 the winter of our life we go

Just remembered Lana has never performed The greatest live… 🤣 Literally what is the reason 

 

The Half assed 20 second acapella doesn’t count btw

This was my first deep dive into Lana. It is her best album IMO. Sooo good

 

i love the exclusive urban outfitters cover. But why is there only a version with the parental advisory. It needs to be seen in its full glory.

his last masterpiece :crai: surprised that august by Taylor is so low on the list, it's probably my favorite song from her
