It’s already Thursday and I haven’t done a post since last Friday, my apologies. My mind has been in a massive fog since coming home from New Orleans. Probably killed way too many brain cells this past weekend. It was a phenomenal trip though.
Since I’ve been slacking this week, I actually pulled up the ol’ Spotify last night only to find a new song from Ms. Del Rey that was recommended for me. I’m extremely biased when it comes to Lana, but this song is amazing. Much like her other songs/videos, this one makes me heavyhearted. She does this on purpose, I’m sure of it, haha. But the music is emotional, even epic almost. You feel it musically and lyrically, building intensely and in time, makes you sad. Her frustrations, her point of wanting to give up is all so evident. LDR even abandons some of her perfect persona with admitting lyrics, “I’m tired of feeling like I’m fuckin’ crazy.” C’mon we’ve all been there.. Can’t take all of this shit around us and wanting to escape. Relatable song, but only Lana Del Rey can make it sound this beautiful.
I promise my Flashback Friday pick tomorrow will not be this depressing. But this song definitely needs a good listening to.
Been tryin’ hard not to get into trouble,
but I… I’ve got a war in my mind.
so I just ride.
