The amount of anonymous LDR stans just lurking about to downvote anything critical of her is something to behold. I thought the folks who have SG accounts were better than that!

Heh. Sing it to the tune of "Dark Paradise" and you could hardly tell the difference!

I mean, by that margin, any female singer-songwriter that isn't belting their face out and put out a single after "Video Games" is a Lana Del Rey knockoff. You could say the same about Lorde, or Sharon Van Etten, or Aurora, or Julien Baker. Point being, I don't think she's being a knockoff, or that all those artists are all that similar. I think they're all playing the same ballgame, and some subjectively play it better than others. My school's in a Pepsi town, but I still drink Diet Coke when there's no Diet Pepsi around. I'll listen to LDR if she puts out a song I prefer to anything on Folklore!

It’s LDR but like fifty billion times better than LDR come at me

I think it might stick. The trouble is her last few lead and follow-up singles had pretty much no staying power. The ones that lingered, at least as far as I can tell, were the more "old-school" Taylor songs. For instance: "Shake It Off" managed to stay pretty huge for a while, but the 1989 singles that got the most radio play for years afterward were/are "Blank Space" and "Wildest Dreams" (and to a lesser extent "Style," "Bad Blood" would also be a counterpoint since I still hear that occasionally). "Look What You Made Me Do" and "...Ready for It?" definitely dropped off, but I still hear "Delicate" pretty often. And most recently, "ME!" and "You Need to Calm Down" haven't done much, but "Lover" hung around for a pretty long time. So I think the Folklore singles have legs.

I don't know about all of Joanne, but "Million Reasons" is a top-5 Gaga song for me.

Well, she and Tommy Wiseau are both obsessed with California.

I think my problem is that she reminds me of artsy, aloof people I've known in the past who have talent but kind of act like pains in the ass, and I'll want to be friends with them and show off how good they are, and then they kind of take advantage of my good nature. It's a personal thing. She makes me think of all the people who are high on their own fumes and use others' praise to lead them along and justify acting shitty. Puts me in a bad place.

Really the only way you and I differ in opinion is that you start with "Lana Del Rey" is fantastic. Eh. I don't know if I'd say that, but as ever, I get that she's not my thing but very much is others'.

This song is a limp noodle. I don't care for it.

I literally just bought The Weird Accordion to Al on Kindle so I'm seriously tempted to get it again but I'm not sure. I may very well get the updated Weird Al: The Book, not just because my copy's a little beaten up, but also because - unbelievably, but magically - Al hadn't even reached the peak of his career in 2012! Fucking think about that! By then, he had three Grammys and seven best-selling albums, and he was STILL two years away from getting his first #1 album, embarking on three different, increasingly-ambitious tours, earning another two Grammys, starring in two different TV shows, AND getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Holy crap.

COTW. Nathan Rabin's two Weird Al books are both beautiful. He also defended one of my favorite childhood movies, Elmo in Grouchland, so props to him.

I was replying to Sock, but it applies to you as well I guess. Exactly: I see merit in it, but it’s not for me. Lana stans are awful.

Now how is it that you’re being downvoted and I’m not even though we’re fundamentally expressing the same opinion?

I've just never gotten into her beyond "Video Games" besides a couple other songs. I really wish I could, but I just can't. She's a little too detached for me. There was maybe one period when I gained lucidity and understood it all, but then the moment passed and I'm not feeling it again.

That song is a pretty apt metaphor for now, I think. Shitty things keep happening, but we keep bouncing back, still doing what we love. I guess there’s your link between a nineteen-year-old Proclaimers song and the latest Billie Eilish song!
