  1. American must come over Video Games, sushi!
     
  2. Video Games & Summertime sadness were successful singles in germany - especially Video games was number one.
    Born to die, Blue Jeans & National anthem were ignored or not even released.

    Lana performs Ride this weekend on one of the biggest television event this fall/winter.
     
  3. Wooooo someone else who thinks this. On first listen to Born to Die, "Million Dollar Man" was really the only non-single I liked aside from "Off to the Races". I've grown to enjoy most of the album ("Carmen" being the only track I still skip) but "Million Dollar Man" is still one of the main highlights. It just feels so smooth.
     
  4. This is how I rate the EP...

    Perfection:

    1. American
    2. Cola (Pussy)
    3. Gods and Monsters
    4. Bel Air
    5. Body Electric


    6. Yayo
    7. Blue Velvet
    8. Ride
    9. Burning Desire
     
  5. I'm more like:

    1. American / Cola / Ride / Bel Air / Gods & Monsters
    2. Body Electric
    3. Burning Desire
    4. Blue Velvet / Yayo
     
  6. Why not:

    1. Ride
    2. American
    3. Cola
    4. Gods and Monsters
    5. Body Electric
    6. Blue Velvet
    7. Bel Aire
    8. Yayo

    Also, Radio and Off to the Races are tied for best non-single from Born to Die.
     
  7. This EP is so basic with the exception of Blue Velvet.

    Where are all the hooks from her debut?
     
  8. I'm afraid I don't like this, and it's making me upset. I just can't get through it. I can't get through EIGHT TRACKS, I can still listen to Born To Die the entire way through with no skips, but I can't make it past American on this EP. It's so dull.
     
  9. It seems everyone dislikes 'Blue Velvet'. I love 'Blue Velvet', and think it's one of the best things she's ever done. Am I going to like this EP?
     
  10. Agreed! I am not feeling this at all. American is OK. Nothing on here sounds as good as Born To Die.
     
  11. You should be fine. My only quip is Yayo, really. Everything else feels like an extension of Born to Die without sounding like a retread. Ride and American are two of the best things she's ever done, and Cola is sneaking up on me with each listen.
     
  12. No, Blue Velvet is great. And I don't even much like the original. It suits Lana to a tee.
     
  13. Blue Velvet's the best song on the EP.
     
  14. I adore Blue Velvet. It does feel a bit different to the rest of the EP, but I think it needs that little bit of diversity.
     
  15. Million Dollar Man as best non-single over Off To The Races, Radio and This Is What Makes Us Girls? Yikes.
     
  16. 'Million Dollar Man' and 'Diet Mountain Dew' are the worst tracks on Born to Die. Let's get real.
     
  17. Very right.
     
  18. There is no "worst" track on either Born To Die or Paradise.
     
  19. "Dark Paradise" and "Diet Mountain Dew" (the album version) are the only tracks I'd give an 8, the rest deserves a 9 or a 10.
     
  20. Yes there are. I just named them...
