Lana Del Rey is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
The only reason the remix is nominated for a Grammy is because they made it radio friendly. For some reason, a lot of people who listen to the radio (not all) would turn off the original so fast. Lana has a huge fan base, but she also seems to be an acquired taste. The dance version makes people more comfortable with her music. Which is bullshit, but true. So because it had so much success on the radio, it get s put in for a Grammy. Oh and that other rude anon is the one who sucks, not Lana.
I agree. I personally don’t even think her music is uncomfortable. It sickens me how some people think that her songs are so bad because they’re not 100% happy bullshit that they hear all the time. And it’s hilarious how people dislike her because of that, because I bet every single one of them has felt depressed or sad at least once in their life and honestly, there’s nothing wrong with thinking about things deeply at least once. I’m talking from my own experience, when I was in America, I had a person with me in the car and Summertime Sadness came on the radio (the original, whoohoo) and she said “ew this is so depressing” like there was actually something awfully disgusting about not being happy or with the lyrics of the song. To me, personally, the song reminds me of everything good, of the good feelings and that true happiness (of course I tear up every time I hear the song, duh) but I still do not understand how people can even dance to it, the remixed version. It’s not meant to be happy, it’s not for the clubbing crap. It takes all the emotion out of the song. I would gladly dance to the original, as long as it is true to my heart because that’s what music is about - it’s about feeling.
The remix is fucking terrible and it is NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY???????!?!?!?! Ugh.
WHAT……… A GRAMMY……………………. NO WAY. That remix hurts my ears. I’m so pissed about it. Like what the actual fuck is that thing. Makes me so upset that the person who remixed it basically trashed the whole song and video because it’s just awful. I heard 10 times better remixes of her songs which are actually really good (even though I don’t enjoy remixed songs often) and they don’t even get played by radio stations. Ridiculous.
You know that remix of Summertime Sadness that they play all the time?
I’ve said this before but yeah that crap sucks
And it makes me so mad
Their video for the remix is even worse
What the actual fuck are you doing
