Lana Del Rey - Never Let Me Go
A previously unreleased Lana Del Rey track. I’m guessing it was a bit too cookie-cutter for Born To Die, but it’s a nice departure from the tryingsohardtobedifferent pop sound that we’ve become accustomed to. Plus, ”If you love me hardcore, then don’t walk away.” Me likey.
So Mark Foster and Isom Innis from Foster the People have a new DJ project called Smims&Belle. Their first remix: Lana Del Rey's “Blue Jeans”, with a new verse from Azealia Banks. Check out the original and extended versions on their Soundcloud.
I think it’s time to revise that old adage: The only things that are certain in life are death, taxes… and a steady supply of new Lana Del Rey remixes.
Lana Del Rey - Carmen (Official Video)
The video, which was released over the weekend, is a montage of images evoking 50s and 60s NY life including everything from a stripper on a pole to a baby running into its mother’s arms. Lana, who has credited the many filmmakers behind the youtube clips, also makes a few appearances in the video herself through a warm and grainy filter. Basically, in short, we’re looking at ‘Video Games’ Part Deux.
Sans vocals, done completely on a solo guitar. Whatever you may feel about Lana Del Rey or John Mayer, this rendition of “Video Games” is, if nothing else, a pretty impressive bit of guitar work and worth a listen.

A racy, black-and-white scene in a swimming pool from Ms. Del Rey to start off the week.
A sloppy intro, but a fun mash-up-style remix for you this Friday. Jay-Z’s “Allure” from The Black Album mixed with Lana’s vocals from “Off To The Races. Holler Friday!
Lana Del Rey - Born To Die (PDP 13 Remix)
Lana just got the remix treatment from our favorite Blur & Gorillaz frontman, Damon Albarn. Under the pseudonym PDP 13, Albarn strips the original song of its orchestral layer & creates a bass-heavy club track from the gloomy pop track. The result? The remix we all didn’t know we wanted.
In accordance with a lazy Monday dedicated to music, I gotta say: It pains me to discuss the Lana Del Rey SNL performance & her pee-pee dance. So I will refrain from tearing her a new one. Still rooting for you, Lana. Just step your game up.
LEFT BOY - VIDEO GAMES remix (ft Mirakle)
I’m more excited than I care to admit about Left Boy’s remix of Lana Del Rey’s Video Games (are we on a first name basis yet? Can I just call you Lana?). This could have gone terribly wrong, but his sampling & chopping up of the original actually works pretty well.
Lana Del Rey - Video Games (live at Corinthia Hotel)
Up ‘til now, all the youtube videos (and brutal pitchfork reviews) of Lana Del Rey performing live have done nothing more than make me not want to see it for myself for fear of it ruining Lana for me forever. But this video of her performing ’Video Games’ live at Corinthia Hotel London does the exact opposite. Her voice sounds sublime.
In line with our recent Lana obsession (don’t front, you know that means you too), yesterday, two more tracks from her debut album, Born To Die, were released online. Since Universal has been yanking versions of these songs off youtube, you can listen to “National Anthem” and “This Is What Makes Us Girls” right here at ohmyrock.net. If you don’t have the patience to click & be routed elsewhere, note that Born To Die is being released by Interscope on January 31.
Here’s the closest we’ve seen Lana to the “gangster chick”, seedy-yet-sultry lounge singer that she has
so desperately presented herself to be. So far, I like her other songs better, but this one does the best job at showing the range of her voice.
And our Lana obsession continues…
