I haven't seen many people speak about this on here, but I love how Rob starts off Sweet Carolina by saying "ok" lol. It's something that took me several listens to notice, almost like the Jack easter egg at the end of Hope is a Dangerous Thing

At first I thought the BBS lyric was "your inches really made stacks out of it for me" and I was like...who's inches? :oopna: But I'll have to remember to come back in here and write a mini essay on that line and BBS in general because I have a lot of thoughts 

 

Your inches really made stacks :horror:

Your entrance really made stacks :horror2:

Your engines really made stacks :silly:

Nectar of the Gods is such an LDR staple, a classic, unreleased or not. So glad it found a home! :wub:

 

I remember at the Violet signing at B&N last October, Lana mentioned how prophetic her own poetry can be and how even her own songs can speak to her years down the line (and just two weeks later, she would record Text Book and the title track, two tracks integral to BB). All the leaked songs that ended up on BB, I have certainly gathered new meanings from while listening to them within the context of the entire record. It’s quite amazing to witness part of her journey with those tracks.

I found my new Lana driving record with Norman and Ultra

 

It actually sounds so good just driving aimlessly as the sun sets

I can’t tell you how lovely of a moment I had this afternoon when we had a brief appearance from the sun amidst the otherwise cloudiness lol. I was driving to a lunch during work and the sun flare hit the red trees and was reflecting off of the skyscrapers as I was listening to Thunder. A very surreal driving experience indeed :xcry:

It really is. They couldn’t possibly find a better home in this record: including them in previous projects would probably have a more diluted impact. It saddens me that some people are interpreting this inclusion as laziness or lack of direction when in reality it seems to me that Lana knew exactly what she wanted to express with her vision and used the right songs to do it.

 

What you don’t tell no one, you can tell me…


:oprah:

I 100% agree! The almost mournful to hopeful depiction of herself and her surroundings derived from family-of-origin dynamics that runs from Wildflower Wildfire to Sweet Carolina is genius. It’s brilliant how lyrically, they all serve to share her personal history, but she goes ultra-meta and uses tracks that are actually artifacts of her personal history. :oprah:

the first day I spammed the hell out of BBS but I haven't listened to it much lately, tbh Thunder, Dealer, IYLDWM, Text Book, and NOTG (everything you listed + NOTG lol) has only gotten better with every listen and now they're always playing. Their lyrics and sounds are so gorgeous and I find myself humming them throughout the day wanting to play them. I'm assuming lots of others had similar listening experiences

It’s brilliant how lyrically, they all serve to share her personal history, but she goes ultra-meta and uses tracks that are actually artifacts of her personal history. :oprah:

 

And the way she delved into the concept of motherhood through different lenses: as a fractured relationship (like the one she has with Patty) able to provoke unspeakable trauma for years and years to come and how that filtered down to the way she sees herself in other relationships (Wildflower Wildfire); as a bond she did forge with someone not blood related who did love her unconditionally without bringing the darkest aspects of her past into the mix (Living Legend); as a tender lullaby sung to an imaginary child in which she says everything she wishes her own mother had told her when she was a kid herself (Cherry Blossom); and finally as an affirmation of her own unshakable support and infinite love for the kids of her dearest ones and how in even the worst times and contexts, she’ll always be there for them as a person and as family, above and beyond everything else (Sweet Carolina).

 

Truly a majestic and intricate reflection on what constitutes motherhood, through a delicate mixture of reality and fantasy and past, present and future.

 

No one does it better :oprah:

So well-said! Beautiful words as always. Nectar of the Gods even reflects on that tug-of-war within herself that seems to have been won in WW (choosing to be a “wildflower” over a “wildfire,” or a conscious detachment from the qualities embodied by her mother), but she later realizes is somewhat visceral upon indulgence in all things, including inspiration that this record carries (“I get wild and fucking crazy like the colour blue” “once I found my way, but now I am lost”). It’s poignant that it comes after the climax and sudden epiphany of WW that marks a shift in the record’s narrative (and her life, in that way). 
 

Every track on the entire record serves such an important purpose. She really is the greatest. :xcry:
