Lana del Rey - "Video Games" (Jamie Woon Remix) & "Blue Jeans" [Acoustic]
"[That's] what you do when it's time for your second record. I'd written everything I wanted to write. I'd liked what I'd done, I'd liked my first record; [Lizzy Grant] was autobiographical and beautiful. "Video Games" is a 5-minute ballad with no instruments... It was a downscale from what I'd been doing with a fucking live orchestra. It was synthetic harps and no drums. It was a perfect melody for me, I thought it matched me. When people liked it, it was my least commercial song, it wasn't even a song anyone wanted on the Internet. It was a baby."
- Lana del Rey, speaking with Sean Fennessey (GQ).
