Thank you for posting this, I was so moved watching it. You can see her disease has progressed somewhat in the last few years. I always thought she had it all: she was gorgeous, she had a beautiful voice and came across as a genuinely lovely person, all wrapped up in one. Of her final shows she says “I was just yelling. I didn’t want to charge people for that”. Classy lady.If you missed CBS Sunday Morning with Linda Ronstadt, here it is:
Thanks for posting, Simon. This is a really interesting track. I need to listen to more Lana Del Rey, as I’ve never given her work much attention, though I do like what I’ve heard. And you’re right, her voice does have a haunting quality. Which of her albums would you recommend?I've just got back home and unwrapped my LP copy of Lana Del Rey's album "Lust For Life". There's something about her voice that's haunting.
Anyway, there's an article up about how this song "Groupie Love" from the album is a modern-day version of the Carpenters "Superstar" !
See what you think, it does have the same subject matter ect.
This made me chuckle!^^Thanks for posting Simon but after listening to it I had to immediately put on Solitaire to elevate my mood!

Thanks, Simon I’ve added those songs to a playlist so I’ll have a good listen later today.I've just started getting into her music myself, I've only got her "Lust For Life" album so far but it's quite interesting and I am really enjoying it so will be venturing futher into her albums. Despite my young age it's not really the type of music I usually listen to.
Tracks from across her albums I'd recommend you listen to are:
-Young And Beautiful
There's a retro quality to her that I really dig, both in her voice, sound and looks. She's very aesthetic. It's all very 1950/60's Americana. The first three tracks that I've listed above are very rich sounding with strings combined with a modern sound, it's really interesting and she's quite an anomalous artist compared to her peers, she's old fashioned yet cool.
