Bruce Springsteen has described his admiration for Lana Del Rey's ''Video Games'' in his 'Top 20 songs of summer'.
Here's what he wrote:
“Ouch. That song is so beautiful it kills me. Coming up: Lana Del Rey. And I am a Lana Del Rey fan. And ‘Video Games.’ This is a singer, and a song, that reminds me of the hot, humid, sultry summer nights, and the girls that went with them. Nights so hot and still, fields of fireflies, leaves so still on neighborhood trees that they did not whisper. No rumor of a breeze in sight. You’d sit on the porch. You were dressed, waiting either for her, or the end of the world.” - Bruce Springsteen
