        Not a fan of either, tbh.
        Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

          The Greatest is that bitch
          When we lose what we love
          Don't think anything will ever taste the same
          When we lose what we love
          Don't think anything will ever feel as good again

                  Interesting to go with a double video for these two songs. But it doesn't really matter for her I guess, as she's not a singles artist anymore.

                  Both songs are good on first listen, but at the same time both of them don't make the same impact on me as the four previous singles...

                      The outro on FIILY is transcendent.

                        The Greatest will end up being one of her best songs ever. Love it and I think it’s going to grow on me more and more.

                          Good ones, but overrated. Of course, Pitchfork always praises the american acts overwhelmingly

                              The greatest is #2 on Pitchfork's year end song list.

                              2. Lana Del Rey: “The Greatest”

                              On “The Greatest,” the big one—the ultimate disaster—looms large. Civilization teeters toward oblivion, the temperature climbs upward, and Lana Del Rey is our soothsayer. She narrates these end times with a wry resignation that’s nostalgic and tactile, dreamy yet prickly. Pining for Long Beach and a lost lover, missing the music and nightlife of New York, her response to the future is to cling to her past. She’s had a ball, but as she flips through the photo album, she concedes that the culture is a little too lit, that the heat is making her breath feel heavy.

                              The gut punch of the song is that despite her exhaustion, she sounds fulfilled. There's contentment in her voice as it floats over Jack Antonoff's sour guitar chords and soft keys, as if she’s savoring her just desserts. This isn’t just a character study, though: As one woman's world goes up in smoke, Del Rey zooms out to observe other anguishes: Kanye West is a shadow of himself; Hawaii is panicked by fictional missile strikes; David Bowie’s vision of life on Mars is now being pursued by Elon Musk. As her voice drops to a whisper, she takes in this surreal and depressing panorama—what a truly ludicrous ending, right?—then suddenly she perks up. Why? Because there’s a livestream to watch. The greatest loss of all, it turns out, is our attention spans. –Stephen Kearse

                                This was always my #1 song this year. It's honestly a defining moment in music.
