Ukulele Utopia

A Virtual Learning Experience

Born To Die

Born To Die, Summertime Sadness, Lolita

The beautiful singer songwriter gets the ukulele treatment. She had a number of stage names before settling on Lana Del Rey. Before she became a household name, Lana Del Rey was known as Lizzy Grant. (Her full name is Elizabeth Woolridge Grant.) But before settling on her current moniker, the singer toyed with a number of different stage names including Sparkle Jump Rope Queen and May Jailer. She finally settled on Lana Del Rey during a trip to Miami with her sister, where she realized she “wanted a name that sounded sort of exotic and reminded me of like the seaside on the Floridian coast.”

This video is part of a project I’m working on. I’m learning to play my favorite albums on a ukulele. If you enjoyed it why not check out some other classic albums that I arranged. Like Lorde and Kayne West.
