Million dollar man

I am a fan of Lana del Rey. I like the fact that her songs are very passionate, be it about love, lust or heartbreak. You might want to hear this song with the bass on and if it is while driving, the merrier 😉 And her voice is quite haunting to hear.

Lyrics from A-Z Lyrics

“Million Dollar Man”

You said I was the most exotic flower
Holding me tight in our final hour

I don’t know how you convince them and get them, but
I don’t know what you do, it’s unbelievable
And I don’t know how you get over, get over
Someone as dangerous, tainted and flawed as you

One for the money, and two for the show
I love you honey, I’m ready, I’m ready to go
How did you get that way? I don’t know
You’re screwed up and brilliant,
Look like a million dollar man,
So why is my heart broke?

You got the world but baby at what price?
Something so strange, hard to define

It isn’t that hard boy to like you or love you
I’d follow you down down down,
You’re unbelievable
If you’re going crazy just grab me and take me
I’d follow you down down down, anywhere anywhere

One for the money, two for the show
I love you honey, I’m ready, I’m ready to go
How did you get that way? I don’t know
You’re screwed up and brilliant,
Look like a million dollar man,
So why is my heart broke?

One for the money, two for the show
I love you honey, I’m ready, I’m ready to go
How did you get that way? I don’t know
You’re screwed up and brilliant,
Look like a million dollar man,
So why is my heart broke?

I don’t know,
You’re screwed up and brilliant,
Look like a million dollar man,
So why is my heart broke?

Burning Desire

Burning Desire was the first song of Lana Del Rey’s I listened to. I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. It has this James Bond-ish tune to it and is sung in such a sultry voice, it was hard to ignore that song for almost a week. And then I started to listened to Lana Del Rey and became a fan of hers. She has a very unique voice. I have got a couple of other favorites too, but wanted to share this with you.

So without further ado, I present you Lana Del Rey and her beautiful  & sexy song ‘Burning Desire’.

Every Saturday night I get dressed up to ride for you, baby
Cruising down the street on Hollywood and Vine for you, baby
I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits ’cause I just don’t care
You ask me where I been?
I’ve been everywhere
I don’t wanna be no where but here
(Come on, tell me boy)

I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)

I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits ’cause I just don’t care
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire

Every Saturday night I seem to come alive for you, baby
Santa Monica, I’m racing in the lights for you, baby
I drive fast, radio blares, have to touch myself to pretend you’re there
Your hands were on my hips, your name is on my lips
Over over again, like my only prayer
(Come on, tell me boy)

I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)

I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits ’cause I just don’t care
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire

I’m driving fast, flash, everyone knows it
I’m trying to get to you, baby
I’m feeling scared and you know it

I’m driving fast, flash, everyone knows it
I’m trying to get to you, baby
I’m feeling scared and you know it

I’m driving fast, flash, everyone knows it
I’m trying to get to you, baby
I’m feeling scared and you know it

I’m driving fast, flash, everyone knows it
I’m trying to get to you, baby
I’m feeling scared and you know it

I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire
(Come on, tell me boy)

I drive fast, wind in my hair, I push you to the limits ’cause I just don’t care
I’ve got a burning desire for you, baby
I’ve got a burning desire

Tuesday Tunes – Dark Paradise

From one of my favorite singers. This might be a repeat I think , I am not sure. But this song pulls me in, every time I listen to it. Its sort of addictive. My favorite way to listen to some songs – sit alone in a room , play the song in full bass and treble not too loud and not too soft , let the song echo and then lie down on the floor and close the eyes. I have a set of songs that I love to listen to  in that way and this is surely one of them.

Steve’s Music Mix: How deep is your music

Answers to this week’s Steve’s Music mix : How Deep Is Your Music.

What is your view of people?   

Born To Die – Lana Del Ray

Yes, we are all born to die one day…. 

What is the meaning of life?

 Bleeding out – Imagine Dragons

I am a very positive person, but how am I going to relate this song to the meaning of life ???? sigh But yes, life always brings us a situation where we feel like

But innocence is gone
And what was right is wrong

and our strength lies in handling such situations and emerging, may be , not as a victor but at least as a survivor.  (Did that make any sense at all ??? )

If you could change your name what would it be?

 Lonely Boy – Black Keys

Lonely Woman – perhaps 😀 

Tuesday Tunes

I like Lana Del Rey so you will definitely find her songs in my play list (which actually irritates some of my friends, because they think she is too sad and too slow 🙂 ). She has a very unique and sensual voice. My other posts on her are here.

Born to Die – album

(For all these songs, I haven’t seen the video’s yet, so going with the music version only)

Dark Paradise – I used to listen to this song for almost 2 weeks while I was driving some time back. Because the effects in my car was like that of a home theater with full bass on , with two front and two back speakers. And this song with that kinda effect is just out of the world. If you have a big hall with full home theater installed, just lie down on the floor, close the eyes, heart full of yearning (that is what I always imagine) and listen to this song. And yes, I have memorized this song and any time I hit a karaoke next time, I am gonna go with this one 🙂

Million Dollar Man – Another song in this album which goes on my repeat. For some reason I picture a slow dance number for this. Because every time I hear this, I feel my body swaying on its own.

Lolita – A very peppy number.
