On Monday, Father John Misty covered Lana Del Rey's 2012 song 'Ride' at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards. After presenting her with the Global Impact Award, he also said a few words about her impeccable songwriting skills.
"It strikes me as vaguely ironic to give a songwriting award to someone who just seems to effortlessly radiate songs, but I know how hard you work and what you do and I think everybody else does," he said. "You can take all the crack songwriters and put them in a bunker for a thousand years and they would not come up with 'I Fucked My Way [Up] to the Top,' ever."
