    Didn't know "California" was so well regarded (well anyone's #1 that is). I love it too, and it almost made my top ten - probably along with a dozen others TBH.

    "How to Disappear" is probably my favorite underrated Lana track.

    John met me down on the boulevard
    Cry on his shoulder cause life is hard
    The waves came in over my head...

    she's just been so consistently high quality in her output for almost a whole decade, and kept the albums coming thick and fast throughout that time. there are so many full on 10s.

    And then this bit, the way she delivers "California sun" in particular, the warmth. It kind of reminds me of "Tis the Damn Season" for some reason.

    Now it's been years since I left New York
    I got a kid and two cats in the yard
    The California sun and the movie stars...

    DC just can't relate to wanting to choke on your own sadness while necking bourbon in a dirty motel room cos your man is off with his Becky. :rolleyes: it's a specific vibe, it's not for every queen.

    I just don't understand how one can despise Ultraviolence but rate "Music to Watch Boys To" as the #2 best Lana Del Rey song. I mean COME ON! :D

    Seriously though, yeah Music To Watch Boys To reminds me of the time around a serious breakup and my PhD defense, ie a very intense period. I still remember exactly when and where I had THAT MOMENT to it.

    Glad you made it out OK! I like "Music to Watch..." and the whole Honeymoon LP. It just confuses me how someone can hate Ultraviolence but like anything from that album *downs quaalude* :D

    AGREE! (except I don't stan Salvatore or 24-- sub in Terrence Loves You and God Knows I Tried)

    It's hard to be Honeymoon when all the other albums SLAP A LITTLE HARDER.

    OMG of course! It's been a while since I had a moment to it!

    I can't believe you lot made me sit through an hour of literal ultra violence when we had the lovely Honeymoon instead!

    I need to listen again in full but god Honeymoon is such a BORING DRAMA FREE RECORD. It really only gets good from Salvatore onwards.

    Well if it's going to be a reverse Ultraviolence listening party with everyone complaining and only me enjoying it, I'm cancelling the Honeymoon listening party before it even happens. Bye.

    Happy to do a Honeymoon sync next, I'm sure we'll have plenty of time before the new album drops. :eyes:

    I'm the opposite of @Jark I LOVE the first half, and really don't care for the second half UNTIL "Blackest Day"

    It's difficult comparing songs on Born To Die/Paradise with the rest of her discography because it's a bit like two different artists!

    I'll need to do some *serious* thinking about this (which I'm entirely capable of contrary to what you might hear out on the streets).
