Have You Heard of Lana Del Rey?

Saturday, February 04, 2012

So, I've been hearing a lot of hype about Lana Del Rey and decided I'd check her out. First, I listened to a couple of her songs on YouTube and thought they were okay.

Then, I watched her Saturday Night Live performances that everyone was talking badly about. Yes, she sounded pretty bad, but she just seemed nervous. I watched some of her other live performances, and she was much better than her SNL set.

Anyways, I found myself humming her song "Video Games" to myself the next day, so I decided to preview the rest of her CD on iTunes. I ended up buying it, and I'm glad I did.

Her songs are so mellow, yet they're catchy. People are calling her genre "sadcore," which I sort of get.

Here are some of my favorite songs from her album Born To Die. I've been listening to it on repeat for the past three days.
