What Your Favorite Lana Del Rey Song Says About You, From "West Coast" To "National Anthem"
Like many, the first Lana Del Rey song I ever heard was her breakout single, "Video Games." Something about Del Rey's voice was haunting — it was smooth and beautiful, but also surprisingly chilling. The words weren't tragic, but something about her voice was. Her songs were hardly feel-good radio pop hits, but they were stuck in my head as though they were. Ever since that first track, I've been hooked on Del Rey, and have watched as her songs have been spun into hot summer remixes and used as theme music for major motion pictures like The Great Gatsby and Big Eyes. Del Rey's taken over her slice of the music world, and I'm completely onboard with her so-called "Gangsta Nancy Sinatra" ways, despite all the hipsters who roll their eyes. Forget the haters — Del Rey's music is the tragipop we all need.
If you're a fan of Del Rey, you totally get the hypnotizing power of her songs. Every Del Rey fan has a very specific tune that speaks to them, and the song you love the most can say a lot about you. I've carefully analyzed each tune (note: I just listened to them a lot) and this is what your favorite one means:
You love adventure and the thrill of the new. You're a risk taker who believes that there's always something better and more exciting out there — you just need to go out and take it for yourself.
"Off To The Races"
You're a bit of a troublemaker who tends to attract other troublemakers — but deep down, all you want is someone who loves you for exactly who you are.
You like the finer things and life, even though you tend to go into credit card debt to have them. You're not exactly ready to settle down yet, but are loyal to the people you have the most fun with.
You're a dreamer who thinks that love can and will conquer all at the end of the day... even if the odds seem permanently stacked against you and your bae.
You're the ultimate romantic who would do anything for your loved ones, no questions asked. Just remember to do you every once in a while, OK?
"Young & Beautiful"
You're happiest when you're at your most carefree. You frequently find yourself nostalgic for the past, even if you're content with your present.
You have a penchant for falling for guys who will (and maybe already did) break your heart, but you wouldn't have it any other way. What's fun about stability?
There you have it — now go put on the sad lady and get your therapeutic cry on.
