Summertime Sadness (by Lana Del Ray) (written by Lana Del Ray and Rick Nowels; released June 2012)







[As Miranda famously said, “the end of summer is like someone dying.” This elegiac fable of doomed, dying lovers is brilliant and beautiful, a kind of pop “Gloomy Sunday” with an Ennio Morricone-spaghetti-western feel. Sensational.]

    Lovely song. I thought it was Stevie Nicks when I first heard it.
