I really hope she can make top 3 in the US, that way all of her albums will have charted top 3 on Billboard. 

 

Spoiler

(#02, #01, #02, #01, #03, #02)

 

I think she'll likely get #02 or #03 in the UK too. Can't believe Honeymoon is her only album not to hit #01 thus far here in the UK.

 

Spoiler

Also, impressive that she's still charting like this, 10 years into her career, 8 projects deep and all without radio hits and major promotion.

i don't just love how 'if you lie down with me' has that retro jazzy instrumental outro but i love how the whole song sounds like it could be right from a 30s movie like the lyrics, the melody, the music, how she sings it, everything. like i can almost imagine alice faye or ginger rogers performing it in a movie then the instrumental at the end would like the tap dancing part at the end of the number.

the title track really makes me cry more than any other song on the album :crying4:

***but arcadia, beautiful, living legend, cherry blossom, & sweet carolina are big tear-jerkers too (but i have in fact cried to every song on this album at least once, even the interlude lol)

I didn't like If You Lie Down With Me at the first listening except for the beautiful outro.

The chorus reminded me a lot of sweet Lizzy.

Now I realized I actually didn't like it because I'm trying to forget about someone I fell for and the song hits right THERE.

AND NOW I CAN'T LISTEN TO THE F*CKING SONG WITHOUT CRYING. LIKE HOW SAD AND SWEET IS THE STUPID SONG.

Thanks Lana. I'm purging really hard with this album.

In 9 years she NEVER made me cry this much. Ever

Me too, BB is her most underrated title track


I'll do it for the right reasons
