A Best of the Rest of Lana Del Rey Part 3

Just over four months after A Best of the Rest of Lana Del Rey Part 2 we have Part 3 from the ever generous and unique Miss Grant. It is as varied as ever but also generally stranger than parts 1 and 2. Some of it dates back at least 4 years but it kicks off with two excellent recent covers of songs by Leonard Cohen and then a great duet with her beau on Summer Wine from Lee Hazlewood. The likes of Queen of Disaster and Party Girl are very much poptastic guilty pleasures though the latter has a great set of lyrics. Much of the rest is brilliantly amusing and rather strange with even a bit of Bollywood. Beautiful Player and the Princess Superstar produced gangsta Bond style Golden Grill from 2009 are two of her finest moments. Is it Wrong? could have been on Part 2 but this more recent version is slowed down and works much better and Hawaiian Tropic takes the chorus of the not so good Every Man Gets His Wish and makes something more substantial. Later on there are probable Paradise out-takes like Starry Eyed and Angels Forever which would not be out of place on the extended version of  Born to Die. It ends with the gorgeous Black Beauty a demo of a track that is rumoured to be on the upcoming LP. Check it all out via Grooveshark on the Moon below:


MOON ADVERT: For a whole album of songs that are dark, mysterious, gorgeous and rather like Miss Grants Black Beauty or her version of Chelsea Hotel No 2 then check out Marissa Nadler on the Moon 


Another Moon Advert - For 51 tracks of top notch Rock n' Roll check out  A Best of 2015 part 1 on the Moon

Update: Sadly Grooveshark has expired so below it is now embedded using the BTNT player

It should work on PC, Tablet or Mobile. It does not expand to show all 21 tracks but you can scroll through them and click on each track to play them and the bottom left had box will play and pause the playlist. If you double click on the timer bar it will FW or RW.

UPDATE! The Epic and Poptastic Part 2 is now available again via BTNT

Part 1 is also now available again via Soundcloud as is Sparkle Jump Queen and Sirens Extended via BTNT. All of the songs are on either Ubend or Soundcloud.

angels forever is actually from her upcoming album. every man gets his wish is more recent than hawaiian tropic. the actual song called "party girl" has not leaked yet... the song you have in your list is St Tropez. you are missing a lot of songs.

Thanks I thought it was Party Girl aka St Tropez, I do prefer St Tropez but it did just not appear as that in Grooveshark. I hope Angels Forever is not on the album as it is my least favourite track was not sure whether to include it as it is a bit plodding like a less good "Ride". Yes there are quite a few that I don't think are great songs or just don't sound great like Every man gets his wish or TV in Black and White. Which ones do you think should be included?

can you download any of these on Grooveshark? I love 'Tired Of Singing The Blues' and the part 2 of 'Is It Wrong'.

are those two on youtube?

Syb FromtheMoon said...

Yes they should be on Youtube and maybe Soundcloud just check that it is not the speeded up versions of Is it Wrong

"summer wine" Sounds like the perfect 007 movie theme song, or is it just me?

Golden Grill is I think the most Bond theme like but is would make an odd Bond film title. Summer Wine would be great for any soundtrack though and is one of many great songs by the late great Lee Hazelwood.

Can I just say thank you so so much for posting this, I love Lana and some of these songs are absolutely breathtaking especially "Black Beauty".

Thanks have you checked out Part 1? (or The Best of the Rest of Lana Del Rey) I think it is best of the 3 so far.. It is quite remarkable how all this stuff has not been officially released though I guess it has all worked out brilliantly for her in the end.
Black Beauty in said to be on the new album and so it is a good sign of things to come.
