What Lana Del Rey song best highlights her skills as a musician?

I would say the title track of Honeymoon. To me, it represents a perfect conduit between grandiosity and authenticity, which is ultimately how I would describe Lana. :flutter:

Yesss I came here to say this. Honestly a treasure for Lana

Definitely OTTR. Sonically, lyrically, musically - and basically every adverb that ends with „-ly“!

 

I would die to be able to hear it for the first time again ???
 

And of course WC ??

West Coast>>

Cruel World, West Coast, Shades Of Cool, all of these show of her ability to combine many different classic elements of jazz and rock together

 

Off To The Races, Lolita, Born To Die are great examples of how she can mix strings with hip hop beats and make it work

 

Basically the entirety of Honeymoon and NFR! because theyre musical masterpieces

 

And I guess I’ll throw in Yayo, Ride, White Dress, Yosemite, Heroin, 13 Beaches… basically her whole discography :oprah:


This video is perfect for me. I was just fighting this woman for a bun today. I wonnnnnn

This is such a broad question it’s hard to pick just one tbh

 

As a lyricist/songwriter? Get Free imo

 

As a singer? I’d go with Shades of Cool or Off to the Races

 

In terms of finding a fantastic melody? I don’t think I can narrow it down to just one ? 

 

As a musician/in terms of of playing an instrument? I’m not sure on which songs she actually plays besides the Sirens songs

Off To The Races, Shades of Cool, Heroin, Tomorrow Never Came, etc.- show how she can tell a story with a beginning and end in just one song. 

 

Melody wise, The greatest, HIADTFAWLMTH, Bartender.

 

About production, any song off Honeymoon. The richness of sounds that album exudes still has me on chokehold ngl

 

 

& her just being a musical genius? Noir.

Off to the Races (the way she literally create a whole persona and play a character in this song) & Venice Bitch (musically, her artistic growth & the way she "doing weird stuff" with the sound of surf-music & electronic elements is no joke, it sounds so experimental yet so beautifully traditional in a "Lana Del Rey" way).
