I love her! I love her 60s vibe and how her music all has this hopelessly melancholy I-don't-care-I-love-him soulful feeling. Which fits her voice so well, I could always imagine her singing "Blue Velvet" and I flipped out when I found out she covered it for the H&M advert. Sounds so perfect.

I've known of her for ages but I never took any time to listen to her, and now that I have today for the first time I realize what I hear EVERY time I am in Forever 21.

Not a bash though I have become a big fan in one day. Summertime Sadness is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a while. I adore her singing style because I love when women sing in deep voices. Not that she's exclusively deep voiced, it's just a plus.

One love to possess me

I wore the Diet Mountain Dew demo out when somebody linked it to me a couple years ago, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw her popularity explode last year.

Ohmygoodness, I LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE Lana Del Rey! ♥♥♥ She is my favorite female artist besides Marina and the Diamonds. I've been a fan of hers since last year, I can't remember when exactly, and I first watched her video for Born to Die, thought it was absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking. That song has made me cry too many times to count, because I relate to it so well. I think I saw a little gif of her walking to the guy near the car on Tumblr, and then a little later I somehow found out it was Lana Del Rey, I searched the video, and I have been in love ever since. ♥ I bought her Born to Die deluxe album on iTunes, and since then, I've loved her immensely. ♥ I can listen to the whole album through, there's not a single song of hers I don't like. I want to download the Paradise EP, but until I can get the money I will feverishly listen on YouTube. I actually first heard her when I worked at Forever 21, I didn't know what song it was or who the artist was, but each time Off to the Races came on, I'd be so happy! ♥ And then after I found out about Lana Del Rey, that song has become one of my favorites, and I listened to it over 40 times when I first downloaded her album. ♥ That is my favorite song of hers, but to be honest, all of her songs are my favorites! I guess you could say my most-listened songs would be Born to Die, Off to the Races, Radio (LOVE singing along to that one ♥), Summertime Sadness, Cola, Video Games (GORGEOUS song ♥), Diet Mountain Dew, Lolita, National Anthem, This Is What Makes Us Girls, Ride, Body Electric, Yayo, Gods & Monsters, and Bel Air. ♥ I truly love all of her songs, and she is a lovely woman. ♥ I also love how sweet and airy her voice can be, but then very deep, moody, and seductive. Her song lyrics are so lovely, and her music is just to die for. So dreamy. ♥ I'm so glad there is a thread about her because I adore Lana Del Rey, and she deserves so much love and recognition. ♥

I can't believe I haven't posted in this thread before now!

If I'm not mistaken (I say this because of my awful memory sometimes) DH had a signature with this graphic of Lana Del Rey and lyrics to Gods & Monsters. The picture and the words both kept catching my attention every time I was on VP and saw DH posting so I finally looked into it and listened to that song

It's funny looking back now, I did like that song quite a bit but remembered thinking to myself that she'll never be one of my favorites but that was not true...she's now possibly my favorite artist. Ever!!

After Gods & Monsters, I listened to Born To Die, I think it was. And fell in love with that, from there I went on to listen to more and more of her songs. Over time I realized I was falling in love with her music because, like TBM, it speaks to my heart and soul. I realized there was something very special about her music, not just her voice or the lyrics but also with her.

I could go on and on about how amazing I think she is but looking over all of the comments in this thread, I think everyone said some really nice things about her and also the reasonings as to why she's loved. I will say I really love how old fashioned her music sounds and how deep her voice is as well as the things she sings about (in particular love )

Lana Del Rey will always be a favorite to me, dear to my heart, just like TBM ♡

I first heard this while they were promoting Maleficent. I loved it. Hell, even Angelina Jolie pushed for Lana to sing this song specifically. I just fell in love with this song and her voice. The second song I heard was (and saw the music video of Lana and another woman-I know that Lana is into older men) was "Summertime Sadness". And the third song that finally sealed the deal was "Diet Mountain Dew".

"Never was there ever a girl so pretty" ❤

Gawd, don't even get me started on the song "Honeymoon". Sexy chills~!!!!!!

Not too long ago I discovered "I Can Fly" and "Big Eyes" from Tim Burton's Big Eyes movie, thanks to Songpop :D

Those songs are really amazing and made me realize how the more music of hers I discover, the more I fall in love with her music even still.

I definitely have to mention how happy I am that Tim Burton likes her and her voice too and picked her to write and perform both songs
