Why is no one talking about the video for Ride?

Yeah I kind of cringed when I saw that but I love the video, I like the ugly prettiness of it. I also really like the bits in which she narrates the story.

^ I too cried when I saw it. Her monologues get to me. Especially this one because I had more-so of a connection to it. I feel like people don't give her enough credit as an artist in general, to be honest. I think we've got to see a little more of a side to Lana that we haven't really seen-- a darker soul she is. I also kind of feel like the video is either the truth stretched out or even fully the truth. The video also kind of connected the whole rich daddy to trailer park thing. That's kind of especially the line, "But I really didn’t mind because I knew that it takes getting everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is." And that's mostly the part I can connect with. Another things I should mention that I really liked is the fact that the guys were not the typical "hot" guys you'd find in music videos. It gave it more of a genuine feel.
Ohhhh, and I also love the whole 'trusting in the kindness of strangers' theme that is constantly repeated in her songs. And forget it-- the last scenes were shot beautifully.


Here's a new one she posted on her twitter. I JUST saw/heard it. Beautiful sound. Haven't listened/looked into lyrics, though.

to be quite honest, I don't think any of the songs are as good as ride. to me, the others are kind of boring...

WHAT?
Yayo is so powerful.
Of Gods and Monsters is so insane.
Body Electric is epic.
AH I CAN GO ON.
Honestly, Paradise Edition > Born To Die.
Don't get me wrong, I love BTD. But, the Paradise Edition is so dark and eerie. I guess it's just my weird morbid taste lol

oh, I know! I have that older version sitting on my computer but I never listened to it to compare the two lol
I don't really care at this point haha

Though, for Body Electric the live version is so much better. The instrumental gets to my bone and I like the way she sings it better away from studio (esp. without the effects on her voice. Why did they do that?)
