27/2/17 – Lana Del Rey – Love – 2017

Video Of The Day

Song Of The Day

The polarizing Lana Del Rey returns with a new track, the first since the Honeymoon long player released in 2015. Sounding like Mazzy Star meets Chris Isaak meets Jesus And Mary Chain meets some glamorous past compounded by the  simultaneously modern and retro lyrics plus the doe-eyes framed with false eyelashes – and probably an affection for art deco Los Angeles buildings. In the video a gentle smile cautiously opens the door into her private thoughts.

It’s an infectious dreamy chorus showcasing Del Rey’s unique voice that frankly – I love and simply can’t get enough of. (Her best album, 2014’s  Ultraviolence is a gem).

Floating through your mind, injecting you with the hopeless romance of youthfulness, one can only submit to this effortless atmospheric offering. Close your eyes, get into your cadillac and fly towards the sun.

Look at you kids with your vintage music
Comin’ through satellites while cruisin’
You’re part of the past, but now you’re the future
Signals crossing can get confusing

It’s enough just to make you feel crazy, crazy, crazy
Sometimes, it’s enough just to make you feel crazy
You get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular

Back to work or the coffee shop
Doesn’t matter cause it’s enough
To be young and in love (Ah, ah)
To be young and in love (Ah, ah)

Look at you kids, you know you’re the coolest
The world is yours and you can’t refuse it
Seen so much, you could get the blues
But that don’t mean that you should abuse it

Though it’s enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy
I know, it’s enough just to make you go crazy, crazy, crazy
But you get ready, you get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular

Back to work or the coffee shop
It don’t matter cause it’s enough
To be young and in love (Ah, ah)
To be young and in love (Ah, ah)

Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm
Don’t worry, baby
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm
Don’t worry, baby

And it’s enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy
It’s enough just to make me go crazy, crazy, crazy
I get ready, I get all dressed up
To go nowhere in particular

It doesn’t matter if I’m not enough
For the future or the things to come
‘Cause I’m young and in love (Ah, ah)
I’m young and in love (Ah, ah)

Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm
Don’t worry, baby
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm (Ah, ah)
Hmm
Don’t worry, baby

    I’ve been generally resistant to the charms of Ms. Grant, er “Del Rey,” but I have to confess I finally succumbed to her wiles with the most recent album, Honeymoon … and in fact found myself listening to it relentlessly for weeks on end. I think the vibe was well suited to a stretch of warm, languorous summer afternoons we had here in Seattle, and her studied ennui proved both seductive and contagious and finally broke down my defenses … and then I woke up on the beach with my clothes on backwards and no idea how I got there…

    We’ll see if this new one has the same narcotic effect …
