Hip music…Lana Del Rey – Brooklyn Baby (Official Audio)

“They say I’m too young to love you
I don’t know what I need
They think I don’t understand
The Freedomland of the seventies
I think I’m too cool to know ya
You say I’m like the ice I freeze
I’m churning out novels like
Beat poetry on Amphetamines
I say
I say

Well, my boyfriend’s in the band
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
I’ve got feathers in my hair
I get down to Beat poetry
And my jazz collection’s rare
I can play most anything
I’m a Brooklyn baby
I’m a Brooklyn baby

They say I’m too young to love you
You say I’m too dumb to see
They judge me like a picture book
By the colors like they forgot to read
I think we’re like fire and water
I think we’re like the wind and sea
You’re burning up, I’m cooling down
You’re up, I’m down
You’re blind, I see
But I’m free
I’m free”

Lana Del Rey on SNL

Did you catch ‘internet sensation’ Lana Del Rey on SNL this past Saturday? It seems her performance is being bashed pretty hard. I thought it was OK. I’m not really familiar with her work, so I didn’t have a reference to compare it to. I definitely think she’s a hipster.

I just remembered there’s a free download of her single ‘Born to Die’ still available on iTunes. So you may want to get that.

I heard at the end of the show that on Saturday Feb 4th, Bon Iver is the musical guest. REALLY looking forward to that. If you’re not familiar with Bon Iver, you really owe it to yourself to check it out!
