Stuck-In-My-Head Sundays: Lana Del Rey's "Video Games"

Now, I've been a fan of Lana Del Rey since my friend Laura (who has impeccable taste in music) introduced me to "Video Gams" in July 2011. I listened to it many times then, but in this past week I have officially become obsessed with it and her other single, "Born to Die."

This live performance is my absolute favorite, and I think it perfectly encapsulates the mood it's trying evoke: the utter bliss of being with the person you love. Yet the song has a sense of nostalgia and wistfulness that makes it so much sadder than it has any right to be.
