Not exactly a ‘sisters are doing it for themselves’ tune I’m intrigued by Lana Del Rey’s song Video Games enough to choose it to as a soundtrack to this year’s  International Women’s Day.

She may cultivates a Lolita look but this is more than the usual sugar-sweet pop tune.  The lyrics could have made a brash disco anthem but it is a rendered as a nervous piano ballad where she sounds like she’s about to crack up remembering good times gone sour. : “Heaven is a place on earth with you /Tell me all the things you want to do /I heard that you like the bad girls/Honey, is that true?”

For her debut UK television appearance on Later, the look of shy vulnerability is either highly contrived or perfectly genuine.

I think she looks pretty cool but you decide.
