  1. Good? It's a masterpiece. I really didn't like it the first time I listened to it, mostly due to certain lyrics. Mish Way from White Lung wrote a great essay on Lana and how the complexity of her lyrics is overlooked. http://www.talkhouse.com/mish-way-white-lung-talks-lana-del-reys-ultraviolence/

     

    Lana's bad-taste lyrics are truly on point and punk in a way indie and alt rock never dares to be now. But at the same time imo Lana overcame all the limitations of punk and alt rock to express a sense of agency and freedom that owes more to the '60s-70s counterculture and '50s beats. She's created a synthesis of everything that was good about hippies and everything that was good about punks, leaving out all the things that weren't good about either one.

     

    Get Free is part of this with its rewriting of Neil Young's lyrics, from black to blue. I wonder if that's what Thom really took offense to.

     

     

    They're just embarrassing Lana.  


  2. Not at all.

     

    I've never heard of anyone who enjoys spending time in court, even defending against a frivolous lawsuit they should be likely to win. Radiohead are very rich and they are very litigious (even five years ago they forced then tween Willow Smith to remove a not-for-profit song from soundcloud that sampled Codex) and any lawsuit they launch, no matter how frivolous, could be dragged out for a long time.

     

    yeah will smith's daughter is like really poor n stuff


  3. well a spokesperson from warner said

     

    As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives. It’s clear that the verses of “Get Free” use musical elements found in the verses of “Creep” and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of “Creep.” To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they “will only accept 100%” of the publishing of “Get Free.”
