"Lana Del Rey’s smoky chanteuse persona—a “gangster Nancy Sinatra,” as she’s been described—nearly melted the buzz meter in 2011, thanks to her swanky and seductive “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans.” The single Born to Die finds Del Rey in the throes of another tragic relationship. Strengthened by a background of synthetic strings and a noir beat that recalls Kanye’s “Flashing Lights,” Lana Del Rey zooms toward Dead Man’s Curve as she recites this dashboard confessional, mascara running. Born to Die is the title track of Del Rey’s debut album." -- iTunes Store
