Okay. I went to see The Great Gatsby a few weeks ago (loved it, loved it, you must see it on the big screen, want it to be my life, etc.) I bought the soundtrack as soon as I got home and loved the haunting main single, “Young & Beautiful,” by Lana Del Rey. I’d never paid too much attention to her and had probably never heard a song by her until then but friends: I. AM. OBSESSED. Her videos are as cinematic as her songs, I love her 90’s style, and her lyrics are crazy relatable for me. I hate that I was sleeping on her for so long.

“Summertime Sadness” cruisin’ down the coast goin’ ’bout 99, got my bad baby by my heavenly side. I know if I go, I’ll die happy tonight. nothing scares me anymore. kiss me hard before you go, I got that summertime sadness

“Ride” I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast, I am alone in the night. been tryin’ hard not to get into trouble, but I’ve got a war in my mind, so I just ride

“Video Games” it’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you everything I do. I tell you all the time: heaven is a place on earth with you. tell me all the things you wanna do. I heard that you like the bad girls, honey, is that true? it’s better than I ever even knew
