44. Money Power Glory

Image

The first song on this countdown is Money Power Glory, a track of Lana's heavy hitting 2014 Album, Ultra-violence. I love the way the MPG starts slowly and works up to an anthemic (In a weird Lana way) chorus. The instrumentation is is paired back allowing Lana's voice to shine especially in the chorus. The slightly discordant guitar towards the end of the song is also a highlight.

43. Freak

Number 43 is from my personal favourite Lana album, Honeymoon. Freak starts off slow, building into building to a subdued but intense chorus. The instrumentation is interesting, the trap beats and jazzy moments all make it a great song.

Love MPG! Not my favourite on UV I'll admit but I love how high she gets in the chorus, sounds like a chorus of angels :cry:

Freak is fantastic! Love the trap beat and the way it fades into Art Deco is one of the best parts of the album! Flawless segue

42. Art Deco

Art Deco is the Ying to Freak's Yang. Art Deco is another off Honeymoon and is a pretty chilled and has that fantastic instrumentation that I love about Honeymoon. I again love the trap beats in this one, they form a strong backbone to Lana's vocals. The transition between Freak and Honeymoon is A++++ and one of the many nice touches on the album.

41. Video Games

Image

Ah Video Games.... The first Lana song I heard. I might cop a bit of flack for this being so high. Its a great song, the lush harp strings and orchestral backing provide a fantastic backdrop for Lana's vocals. This used to be a high rating one for me, but time and 4 additional albums have bumped it up!
