This week's Amazon "MP3 newsletter" (which, really, can have its good points way down at the bottom) featured a name that was completely new to me. Okay, we all know the drill. Tinker to Evers to Google, and … by Chance, look. at. that.
Elizabeth Grant (born June 21, 1986), better known by her stage name Lana Del Rey, is an American singer/songwriter. She has been described as a "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra", and cites Britney Spears, Elvis Presley and Kurt Cobain amongst her musical influences.
Uh ... I was gonna say I, too, liked Kurt, but after typing those three dots, I've decided it's probably more honest just to say, Okay! Spectrum covered! Why SHOULDN'T everyone like you?
I did also listen to the title track of what I am told is her monster new album, and made it nearly two-thirds of the way through before giving it a considered "meh." Or "neh." Not sure. Already fading from memory.
It's going to be a long time before I'm able to floss my brain clean of "self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra," though.
Hey, wait! I've got a new complaint!
So there's that.
