Hump Day Jams

Wednesday, May 8

This is something I did on my old blog every Wednesday and I loved it. Bringing it back around!

Today is amazing. Rain like this makes me feel alive and at peace. Everything feels clean and lovely.

It's been a great week with tomorrow being the cherry on top. GATSBY. Needless to say I have been listening to nothing but the movie soundtrack since it came out Monday night. But two weeks ago, they released the single Lana Del Rey wrote specifically for the film. Or... to be more specific, the book. Lana is my favorite artist by far. Hands down. Her words are like velvet, just how I view Fitzgerald's words. She paints gorgeous and glamours pictures with her music. Who better to write a song for Gatsby. It's called Young and Beautiful and it's been the only song I've listened to for two weeks.

This song is completely Jay Gatsby. It feels like that perfect man. It's beautiful and dark and cinematic. Lana always sounds like she's on the verge of an orgasm when she sings. Gatsby lived his life on the verge of orgasm. Reading that book makes me feel orgasmic. This song is orgasmic.

Will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I've got nothing but my aching soul?

All the ways I got to know
Your pretty face 
And Electric Soul

Oh that grace, oh that body,
Oh that face, makes me want to party.

Stunning song for a stunning day.


  1. Isn't the rain just inspiring?? Good grief, it's the best!

    I never thought about it, but Lana Del Ray's music really does suit The Great Gatsby. So much of it is about wealth and glamor and how it affects us. I haven't gotten THAT into her, but National Anthem is such an oddly great song. I can listen to it all day.

    Thank you for the comments :)

    1. Honestly it's like her entire first album was made for that novel. The first song of hers I head I was rereading Gatsby while I was listening to it and it just blew my mind. Mmm I love things :)

      You're great. You're beautiful. Write forever.



Thank you for your words; they light a fire in my heart. You are lovely.
