12 Lana Del Rey Lyrics That Are Totally About Pizza, Because What Else Do You Sing Love Songs About?
Oh, yes: that flawless queen Lana Del Rey sure is something glorious. With her morose lyrics, retro allusions, and references to luxury, chances are you think her songs (in addition to being depressing as hell) are either really hot or remarkably cheesy. Take a look at these Lana Del Rey lyrics, from her hit single "Video Games": "It's you, it's you, it's all for you, everything I do/Tell you all the time, heaven is a place on Earth with you." Whether your gut reaction after reading that was "totally hot" or "totally cheesy," you now have your answer. Anyway, you know what else is hot and cheesy? Pizza. Could that possibly mean there's a tie between the two?
Consider this: Del Rey makes a living from pouting and singing mournful love ballads. There is no love stronger than one between a woman and pizza... and considering I spend all week waiting around for pizza night, I can vouch for that. So, perhaps all those rebellious rock 'n' roll bad boys are just a cover-up for her true passion: a greasy slice of pepperoni. It wouldn't be the first time: we all know that Beyonce's "Die With You" is totally an ode to the dish, and everything Drake's ever wrote could be attached to a delicious pizza pie. But with Del Rey, that subliminal love of pizza is something truly steamy... and melty... and a bit greasy... wait, what are we talking about?
Ahem. Well. Based on my own astute observations, here are 12 lyrics that have to be about pizza:
"Oh my heart it breaks every step that I take/But I’m hoping at the gates/They’ll tell me that you’re mine" — "Born To Die"
Who else can relate to the dramatic moment when you show up at the restaurant to pick up your order and stare lustfully at a delicious pie that may or may not be number 27.
"I will love you 'til the end of time/I would wait a million years" — "Blue Jeans"
If it ISN'T number 27, then you are willing to wait it out... maybe not a million years, though, because you start getting antsy around 10 minutes.
"It's you, it's you, it's all for you/Everything I do" — "Video Games"
Everything you do in your life is a step to get you closer to eating pizza again. That's dedication.
"It's a love story for the new age/For the sixth page/We're on a quick sick rampage/Wining and dining/Drinking and driving/Excessive buying" — "National Anthem"
It's a modern choice to choose food over a boyfriend, but beyond that? This is the story of when I go to this specialty trattoria BYOB place in Red Bank and get wasted on two glasses of Merlot.
"I just wanted you to know/That, baby, you're the best" — "Summertime Sadness"
Requires no explanation.
"You make me crazy, you make me wild/Just like a baby, spin me 'round like a child/Your skin so golden brown/Be young, be dope, be proud" — "American"
For people that are really into the crust.
"Mon amour, sweet child of mine/You're divine/Didn't anyone ever tell you/It's OK to shine?" — "Bel Air"
For those who don't dry off the grease with a napkin.
"We get down every Friday night/Dancin’ and grindin’ in the pale moonlight" — "Body Electric"
It's all understood that Friday is pizza night, right?
"You got that medicine I need/Dope, shoot it up, straight to the heart please/I don't really wanna know what's good for me" — "Gods & Monsters"
OK, pizza isn't really the healthiest food choice, but don't health-shame me! Pizza is delicious.
"I can hear sirens, sirens/He hit me and it felt like a kiss" — "Ultraviolence"
Sometimes you just have to commit and eat the whole pie for yourself.
"And when he calls/He calls for me and not for you" — "Shades Of Cool"
OK? You didn't chip in, so now you're not going to get any cheesy bread. Deal with it.
"Your flyin' high at the show, I'm feeling hot to the touch/You say you'll miss me the most, I say I'll miss you so much" — "West Coast"
The ultimate heartbreak: moving from New York to L.A. and having to trade your one true love for Thai food and enchiladas. Although — that latter part isn't that devastating, I guess.
