Just over a month ago, Lana Del Rey announced 11 dates for her new tour in the United States. As we Florida girls know, many artists tend to skip over us when touring due to our inconvenient geography, so the fact that two of her stops were in Florida was incredible. I was fortunate enough to attend the show in Tampa on Sep. 25, and it was an unforgettable experience. We even got her to perform “Florida Kilos” not once but twice! 

Now, I’m currently in my post-concert depression era, so here I present Florida State University (FSU) majors as Lana Del Rey songs. Enjoy!  

History – “The greatest”

This song is perfect for history majors because it’s about reminiscing on the past and wanting things to go back to the way they were. It also touches on “current” (2018) historical events. She sings, “Hawaii just missed a fireball / L.A. is in flames, it’s getting hot / Kanye West is blond and gone / ‘Life on Mars’ ain’t just a song / Oh, the live stream’s almost on.” These events and her voice provide a melancholic feeling when thinking about how culture and the world are constantly changing and become a part of history.  

Art – “Art Deco”

“Art Deco” is obviously for art majors as this song describes an artistic soul. This song perfectly encapsulates the mysteriousness and captivating personas of art majors. The line “You’re not mean, you’re just born to be seen,” fits well. You artistic people are so cool with your perfectly thrifted outfits and obscure music taste. It’s almost intimidating! 

Psychology – “Pretty When You Cry”

Lana’s songs are full of lines that really make you contemplate, but this one takes the cake for me. This song has layers, and I’ll admit it took me a while to fully understand it. The man she sings of continually disappoints her, but it’s no big deal because at least he thinks she’s pretty when she cries. I just know psychology majors would immediately pick up on the twisted undertones and the deeper meaning of this song. 

Creative Writing – “Ride”

While this song is full of detailed imagery, I ultimately chose it because of the “Ride Monologue.” If you’re a Lana fan, you’re probably aware of the five-minute monologue that originated from the music video back in 2012. The poetic element of this piece is beautifully crafted and moving. The monologue is also incorporated into her current tour, and to me, it perfectly embodies her aesthetic and who she is as a person and an artist.  

Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies – “In My Feelings”

This song is a must-listen for every college-aged girl. It is a powerful reminder about removing toxic people from your life and knowing your worth. My favorite line is, “Who’s tougher than this b*tch? Who’s free-er than me?” She starts the song in a bad place but ends it by running the town. She takes no prisoners and warns men to get out of her way. The message feels so empowering, and I am probably damaging my eardrums when I blast this in my headphones.  

French – “Carmen”

This song is giving “Pinterest Cool Girl,” and so are the French majors. Everyone is obsessed with this so-called Carmen; the girls want to be her, and the boys want to date her. I’ll be needing one of you to translate the French verse for me, please and thank you (my high school French skills are weak).  

Astrophysics – “Chemtrails Over the Country Club”

This one may be a stretch, but I had to include it for the astrology girls. This title track beautifully combines suburbia and nostalgia and has references to birth months and differing personalities. I am embarrassed to admit I know little about astrology outside of my zodiac, so “Baby, what’s your sign? My moon’s in Leo, my Cancer is sun” means little to me.  

The list could go on forever. With nine studio albums, her discography is lengthy. Del Rey’s lyricism, angelic voice, and unique style sets her apart from others in the industry. I am excited to see what comes next, and you better believe I will be holding on to her hint about coming back to Florida soon.
