I came here to see how bad spelling can be.
All those 10 year olds who don't even know what rock is.
Just because you're young doesn't mean you have to listen what other people listen.
All my classmates listen pop. I just like metal and rock.
If I ask what metal is, they will say. isn't that calling the devil and screaming only hate.
If you are going to listen to pop listen first to rock, metal or any other thing. not what your classmates listen.

Sorry for bad spelling.

Lana is so awesome. Her voice has such a mesmerising yet haunting quality to it. Though they may not look like it at first, but her songs are deeper than they seem.

I have lived in constant depression for the past two years. Believe me, it has been a living hell. But whenever I listen to her songs, a smile makes its way on my face. I find them really relatable. Sure her ways of relief might be miles far from mine, but it just feels good to know that you are not alone. Her songs so beautifully convey the feelings of endlessness, hope against hope and belonging nowhere at all. They make me think that there might be someone in this world who would understand me.

I started listening to her songs just this year (2014) and she has already made her way to the top of my list. True, I too at first thought that her songs were simply some of those millions of sappy love songs in the whole wide world, but as I learnt more about her and listened to her other songs (especially Ride. ...more - PlatinumTheHitgirl
