I always thought Lana Del Rey was an American resort.

Sigh. So much for an appreciation thread.

No gods and monsters fans here?

I only really know Young and Beautiful and Summertime Sadness.  I quite like the former.  She's got quite a unique and haunting voice. 

The one thing that has always interested me most about her though is how many gay men adore her.  I feel like the percentage of gay men who like Lana Del Ray is way way higher than the percentage of the general public.  (I am a gay man myself).  One guy I met thought she was the greatest and most important living woman and got really offended when I suggested that maybe Hillary Clinton or Angela Merkel might be a bit more significant.

Lana Del Rey is a Goddess!! Honestly, she's my favourite female artist around today, one of my favourite artists of all-time. I have all her albums. She's one of the few artists where I have to buy all her albums on CD, I'm not happy with just downloads, I have to have the full CD collection! As for her amazing amount of unreleased material that's "out there" online to listen to (most are on YouTube) I have over 100 songs of hers that aren't on any of her official albums (unreleased demos, etc) many all worthy of being on albums and many should have been singles! She makes beautiful music videos that are like mini-movies and are real works of art. I love her retro sound and style, her soothing voice and think she'd be perfect to sing the next James Bond theme song. I also think she should star in a David Lynch movie. She should have been in the new Twin Peaks series, she would have fit in perfectly into Lynch's mad surreal world!

I'm not sure which of her albums is my favourite. I love them all but I have a special fondness for Honeymoon. So many beautiful, haunting songs on it.

Here's the title track. It's simply beautiful.

That would be interesting, and it's given me an idea for a topic.
