New track here from the fabulous Lana Del Ray, a woman I think I may have fallen for both in terms of beauty and in loving her music. To express said love, here's a special post with the new 'Blue Jeans', 'Video Games', 'Kinda Outta Luck' and a couple of fantastic remixes. 'Blue Jeans' then, is just a gorgeous little thing. Lana's voice, with all its little quirks and unmistakable tone, works perfectly with the melancholic air hanging over the track. "Blue jeans, white shirt / walked into the room, you know you made my eyes burn" goes one undeniably powerful line. 2:20 marks the start of a thrilling beat, layered with Lana's passionate, stabbing vocals. They calm into an ending wrought with thought-provoking images, an apt finish to the collage-esque video. But wait! This isn't the end of the post!
I actually missed this for quite a while before I decided to explore Lana's Youtube page over here. This, considering both 'Video Games' and 'Blue Jeans', is a much more fun number. Clips of Lana grinning and laughing and acting a little unhinged make for a very smile-inducing song, especially when the actions make for such irony when matched with the murderous lyricism. A dark start sounds immediately slower than the other tracks, but then an old-fashioned men's club beat comes in, and I can't help but love it. 2:05 is pretty adorable, with the little high note at the end, but really, this whole thing made my day when I heard it. Now, below you can watch 'Video Games' if you haven't already, and listen to a couple of remixes! JIMM's in particular has some nice additions to the original track.
