Original Post: Ok, guys, since I’m so invested in my OTPs these days, and I love soundtracks, I decided to share with you songs that remind me of each one of them. But I also want to interact with you and see what your choices would be, so I’m tagging some people to do the same! And then you can tag your friends as well.
- The lyrics don’t have to necessarily match with the OTP perfectly. I chose some of the songs based also on the feeling they give me, that reminds me of the pairings; - The only songs you can’t use are ones that were already used on their scenes on the TV show.
My Edit: I was tagged by the lovely @themorningatthecastlesgarden! I don’t have too many ships from newer shows (I do kinda have a Game of Thrones ship, but I’m staying hush on that one for now), but these are the pairings I’ve loved pretty much forever.

Honestly I really like the beginning of Lust for Life, it has a really nice vintage/doo wop vibe going on, but overall it's such a poorly written song... The whole vibe I'm getting from the album so far is that the songs are pretty vapid, like "My cherries and wine, Rosemary and thyme, And all of my peaches" wtf Lana
AGREED about LFL. I just really don’t care for the lyrics. I love the doo wop vibe but then the synth-y chorus comes on with a couple lines being repeated a bunch of times and I know it could’ve been much better. That’s what makes it sound like Lana’s featured on a Weeknd song. The weird thing is I think WAY more of us would like it if it was a The Weeknd song and not Lana’s single lol. I still like the song but it doesn’t compare to most of her others.
I feel like Lana doesn’t try as hard on lyrics anymore. BTD had a lot of great lyrics, Paradise had some gems too but over the years I don’t think she cares as much to write poetry in lyrics really.. if that makes sense? There are the occasional beautiful 1-2 liners in a song but i think she put a LOT of effort into her earlier work. Lyrics for songs like Out Wing A Bang, Raise Me Up… “I feel it in the air.Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare. Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere. Nothing scares me anymore.” “Think I’ll miss you forever, like the stars miss the sun in the morning sky.” Idk I have a real love and appreciation for thought out lyrics and playing with words more than just simple rhymes.
There will be songs that aren’t vapid.. God Bless America, When The World Was At War We Kept Dancing, Yosemite, Change.. I have good feelings about those tracks.
