Lana Del Rey: The new indie sensation




These days I have been looking for new songs and  new artists on YouTube and I accidentally listened to "Born to Die". At first, I had mixed feelings...Did I like it or not? I could not answer. Her voice can be disturbing and her lyrics really odd. But then, the next day I caught myself listening to it again, so I guess I really liked it.

Talking about Lana Del Rey (25 years old), she  is an American singer-songwriter. But this is only her stage name, she is actually called Elizabeth Grant, she is daughter of the millionaire Rob Grant. As a matter of curiosity her stage name was inspired by the combination of Lana Turner (the actress) and the Ford Del Rey ( yes..the car...)

Lana's  first album will be named Born to Die and it's set to be released on January 27, 2012. The music video received many  favourable reviews from critics, but of course, there are always people who criticizes her vintage style or how she labels her music as indie..Anyway, this is another story.

Well, let's listen to her and then you tell me what you think or feel....

Born To Die

Lana Del Rey

My, oh me, my
Feet don't fail me now
Take me to the finish line
Oh, my heart it breaks every step that I take
But I'm hoping that the gates,
They'll tell me that you're mine
Walking through the city streets
Is it by mistake or desire?
I feel so alone on the fridays nights
You make me feel like home,
If I tell you you're mine
As like I told you, honey


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets though
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane, so
Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die


Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Trying to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers honey


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Come on take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane,so
Choose your last words,
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die


Come and take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane


Don't make me sad, don't make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don't know why
Keep making me laugh,
Lets go get high
The road is long, we carry on
Try to have fun in the meantime


Come on take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane


Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I
We were born to die
We were born to die
We were born to die
