Lana Del Rey Performs Kasabian’s ‘Goodbye Kiss’
Not long ago, Kasabian performed Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games' on a recent edition of BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge series, so Del Rey has returned the favor with a cover of the band's song 'Goodbye Kiss.'
'Goodbye Kiss' is a rootsy, mostly acoustic song that becomes a piano ballad in Del Rey's hands. Her voice is strong as she sings, "Doomed from the start / We met with a goodbye kiss, I broke my wrist / It all kicked off, I had no choice / You said that you didn't mind 'cause love's hard to find."
Though she might score some indie cred points by claiming to be a long-time fan of Kasabian's dance rock style, Del Rey admits she only discovered the group recently. "All of my boyfriends had loved Kasabian and I'd never listened to them," she says. "I started and I really like this song. I love this song and I love the melody, I love the way the boys sing it."
'Goodbye Kiss' first surfaced on Kasabian's 2011 album 'Velociraptor!' Del Rey's debut album, 'Born to Die,' debuted at No. 2 earlier this year despite mixed reviews.
