Lana Del Rey-‘Born To Die’

4 01 2012

Like a lot of other people, I’m slowly easing my way back into it this week after spending Crimbo and the New Year having a fine old time.One of the things that’s made the transition easier is the super cheery, smile-fest that is ‘Born To Die,’ the new video from Lana Del Rey.Last year her single ‘Video Games’ made it to number one in my singles of the year list and while this latest number isn’t quite as good, it’s a grower and the video is ace. Plus, as a bonus it seems like she’s into dudes with lots of tattoos, which obviously means “I’m in there” if she ever makes her way to Ireland….

Anywho, here’s the clip.
