It’s Lana Del Rey Time!

Summertime Sadness indeed.   And it is in fact summertime, yes it is, at least over here it is!  And this is one of her greatest songs.  Mind you Brooklyn Baby and Born to Die are just stunning songs.  I cannot explain it, what I love about her.  She is clearly really clever, able to create identities and characters.  The music evokes past times, earlier vistas of nostalgia, of old pop, of old time Hollywood, of mythic worlds that never ever existed.  I do not know how she does it – it sounds everything except sincere.  And I just love her, her music, her world.
