Song of the Day: Young and Beautiful
Today’s song is Young and Beautiful by Lana Del Rey.
A haunting ballad. It centers on a young lover contemplating about whether love can last.
Many worry about the fleeting essence of youth and the changes that time brings, both physically and emotionally.
Will you still love me when I’ve got nothing but my aching soul? I know you will.
Most focus on the lyrics, but that backing violin really is beautiful.
Lana Del Rey has several excellent albums.
It’s strange to see that this soundtrack addition blew up so much.
