This video from SXSW ’09 has a great version of this song.  Slightly longer then the album version…with some nice new background vocals from Victoria.  Also can’t beat the visuals and Victoria’s killer highwaist denim.

Madeline Smith (born 2 August 1949 in Hartfield, Sussex) is an English actress and comedienne. She was a model in the 1960s, and appeared in many comedy films (e.g. Carry On Matron), television series, and Hammer horror films during the 1960s and the 1970s.

Her father owned an antiques shop near Kew Gardens, while she had a temporary job working at Biba’s boutique, a fashion house in Kensington High Street, London, during the 1960s.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Smith was frequently the subject of cartoons by J Edward Oliver, which made constant admiring reference to her disproportionately large bust.

I’m so in love with this house…most specifically the amazing talent that calls it home.  Calling out to me immediately were the dollhouses (I had the same ones I think as a child cluttering up my bedroom) and the bedding made from vintage lingerie.  UH_FU_CKING UH_MAH_ZING.  VIA the SELBY.

Lana Del Rey –

I can’t stop watching {since posted on SO MUCH TO TELL YOU} and hearing her sultry voice.  I love the nods to Priscilla and Paz in the video.

 while you’re at it, watch more of the vixen –

 



She was vivacious and her laugh was full and hearty. She was alive and her life was leisurely.
