  1. for what it's worth, Bellevue is a very old and very famous mental hospital in Manhattan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellevue_Hospital I imagine that's what she and Courtney were discussing
  2. Honeymoon is my absolute favorite, but for Poll 2 I couldn't pick between FIILY/TG and Doin' Time. One's beautifully understated, and the other's ridiculously maximalist, and they're both killer
  3. God this really is the most entertaining thread on Lanaboards
  4. thinking about the Methamphetamines video... such a weird one-off in that she didn't do videos for any other laptop tracks (that we know of )
  5. Perhaps her most underrated unreleased? Such a killer song, omfg
  6. I just keep coming back and staring at it omfg... iconic photo and a true holy grail of Lizzy memorabilia
  7. A dirty, dusty back road with sunshine and a cool Spring breeze blowing
  8. Before COTCC dropped, I assembled a bunch of era-specific, chronological playlists that include all of Lana's unreleased material (or, at least one version of each song, lmao). It came out to 17 (!) playlists, and I drafted up a list that combined them with the rest of her discography, giving me a chronological order to listen to it all in: My original intent was to listen to and rate everything in the lead-up to COTCC, but ultimately it dropped before I was even out of the Lizzy era. But, today, I finally re-listened to COTCC, finishing the full discography listen + rate. For each album (or playlist/compilation), I rated each song from 1-5, ranked the tracklist, and then gave the album an average rating. I included all bonus tracks (excluding remixes) with their respective albums. So, here's the results! I'm giving the unreleased stuff one average rating, since my fanmade playlist ratings won't mean much to anyone: 1. Young Like Me (4.75) [4-track version] 2. Lana Del Ray (4.54) 3. Norman Fucking Rockwell! (4.5) 4. Paradise (4.44) 5. Ultraviolence (4.25) 6. Unreleased (4.22) 7. Chemtrails Over the Country Club (4.18) 8. Honeymoon (4.14) 9. Born to Die (4.13) 10. Lust for Life (3.94) 11. Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass (3.93) 12. Singles & B-Sides (3.78) [All officially released non-album tracks] 13. Sirens (3.73) 14. Young Like Me: B-Sides (3.67) [3 tracks; leftovers from the other YLM tracklist + From the End] 15. Collaborations (3.31) This looked pretty different than I expected! My normal ranking would probably go: 1. Lana Del Ray 2. Norman Fucking Rockwell! 3. Born to Die 4. Unreleased 5. Young Like Me 6. Paradise 7. Chemtrails Over the Country Club 8. Ultraviolence 9. Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass 10. Honeymoon 11. Singles & B-Sides 12. Lust for Life 13. Young Like Me: B-Sides 14. Sirens 15. Collaborations So, yeah, there were several shocks: I like Paradise a LOT more than I realized, I definitely didn't expect YLM to take number 1 by a landslide, and Born to Die was way insanely lower than I expected. This was so fun, and I was really happy to revisit some projects + songs I hadn't given due attention to in a long time, plus reevaluating all my faves and least faves from her records Guess I'm gonna go bop to You, Mister
  9. For Free and it was so fitting loved this so much!!! you really nailed this
  10. dope!! thank you for sharing all of this
  11. are either of these new, or the same as you shared before?
  12. why am i the first person in four years to like this masterful critical analysis of what i assumed to be one of LDR's most throwaway pop songs Delicious next
  13. i liked it y'all had me worried i don't personally agree with all the placements, but as an objective ranking, i think it's a lot better than many i've seen -- it's pretty clear from the descriptions that the author knows LDR's catalogue well and i think he has interesting things to say about the songs!!! i agreed with a lot of his observations and even where i didn't, i think he brings up interesting points ig everyone can stay mad that the album version of Lolita is a mess (an iconic mess but the demos outsold in terms of being listenable lmfao) and that hiadt is a career-defining track
  14. now THIS is a concept!!! Jump (Demo) - 8 Mermaid Motel (Demo) - 12 Ruby (Put Me In A Movie Demo) - 9 The Ocean (Kill Kill Demo) - 10 Queen Of The Gas Station (Demo) - 10 Brite Lites (Demo) - 10 Trash Magic - 10 Trash Magic (Demo 1) - 11 "The Man I Love" (Trash Magic Demo) -10 Wayamaya - 10 Roller Dirby (Pin Up Galore Demo) - 10 Pin Up Galore - 11 When I'm With You - 9 Never Let Me Go - 10
