Riff: Lana Del Rey – “Young & Beautiful”

Apr 24, 2013

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?/Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul?

from Young & Beautiful lyrics by Lana Del Rey

This Gatsbian empire of a soundtrack is throwing aces left and right. Lana Del Rey couldn’t be more perfect with her usual pouty, privileged heartache wailing ‘pretty face’ and ‘electric soul’ weepy-willowisms, chasing one of the most infamous reflections on the moral bankruptcy come party’s end.
