Hey friends!

Welcome to my page where I recommend songs to add in your playlist!

Today I'm going to list my top 5 favourite songs from Lana Del Rey, that is a must to have in your playlist! If you don't know how Lana Del Rey is, She is a singer-songwriter known for her dreamy and nostalgic style of music. People enjoy her for her unique voice and poetic lyrics. Lana's songs explore themes of love, violence, toxic romance, despair, aging and drug use. Here are some of my top 5 favorite songs that I recommend to everyone :)!


5. Ultraviolence

'Ultraviolence' is one of Del Rey's most memorable song from her album 'Ultraviolence'. The words describe a story back when she met a cult leader in New York. The song was also inspired by her connection to the seemingly conflicting emotions of aggression and softness.

"He hit me, and it felt like a kiss."- Del Rey wrote this line to state how abusive relationships attract the marginalized women she loves to sing about. She also has many powerful lines in the song such as, " He hurt me but it felt like true love" and "Loving him was never enough."

4. Blue Banisters

'Blue Banisters' is personally one of my favourite songs from the album 'Blue Banisters.' The song reflects on the love of female friendship and how it has remained a constant in her life as men come and go.

"What I can promise is I'll lie down like a bed of wildflowers and I'll always make the sheets smell like gardenias wild at your feet, and I nourish you hazily."- Del Rey used a lot of pure poetry in Blue Banisters to engage with the audiences emotions.

3. Ride

'Ride' is one of Del Rey's most successful and famous song, from the album 'Born to die.'

“Ride” delivers a swelling ballad that recalls the quiet brilliance of “Video Games.” It’s easy to hyperfocus on how the noirish Paradise single leans into Del Rey’s oversexed persona and her penchant for calling lovers “daddy” — but the most affecting moment of the song comes from perhaps the most direct lyrical moments. “I’m tired of feeling like I’m fucking crazy,” she confesses with a high-pitched lilt. It’s this stifling sentiment that drives the payoff of her escape. —I.K.

2. West Coast

'West Coast' is Del Rey's first song in the 'Ultraviolence' album and is actually also one of Lana's most popular song. 'West Coast' describes a life of a girl who lives on the west coast oif United States. She seems to be in love with someone buyt it also trapped and uinsure about her feelings. In the beginning, Del Rey talks about how she loves on the west coast and how much she misses it whens she's not there.

The chorus is where the lyrics become slightyl ambiguous. Del Rey seems to be trapped in her own thoughts and emotions, and she's not sure how to move forward.

1. Video games

'Video Games' is one Del Rey's most famous and popular song. Video games is in the album 'Born to die' where other great hits are mostly in too. Del Rey stated at an interview that Video Games is about "the way things were with one person, and the chorus was the way that I wished things had really been with another person, who I thought about for a long time,” she said.

In the verses, Del Rey depicts scenes of domestic tranquility and socialising with friends, 21st Century style. Her days and nights are filled with beer. darts. billiards, and of course, video games. "This is my idea of fun," she sings at the end of the verse in a voice somewhere between deadpan and narcotized.
