    Yes I think it’s time to do this properly. I have pretty much been listening to the album non-stop for 3 weeks, I am THAT obsessed at the moment. So:

    00 Born To Die
    00 Off To The Races
    00 Blue Jeans
    00 Video Games
    00 Diet Mountain Dew
    00 National Anthem
    00 Dark Paradise
    00 Radio
    00 Carmen
    00 Million Dollar Man
    00 Summertime Sadness
    00 This Is What Makes Us Girls

    00 Without You
    00 Lolita
    00 Lucky Ones


    I was going to put Youtube videos up but most the tracks aren't on YouTube so you'll have to buy the album if you want to hear them :angel:

    Some of those 10s are really 11s but I couldn't choose just one, and as having more than one 11 would BREAK MOOPY, I will resist.

    Sorry I thought this was for her as a pop star. I quite like Video games (in moderation and without having to look at her face).

    She is very confusing as a popstar, i like the music (which i still need a few more listens to rate) but everytime i see her i just don't get it.

    I didn't know there was a different mix of Dark Paradise, is there a story behind it?

    lyric changes and some drum sequences. Overall, compared to the album version I do prefer the demos and some Radio Remix that was issued only in German radio stations (God knows why) and it's much more pop and upbeat.

    The demos have extra lyrics and different rhythm as well. I mean, I don't hate the album version but I adore these versions much more.
