Lana Del Ray track listing
"Smarty"

"Put Me in a Movie" (originally known as "Little Girls" or "Ruby") is the eleventh track on Lana Del Ray, the debut studio album by Lana Del Rey. The song produced by David Kahne. It was part of the demo tape, No Kung Fu, which Del Rey sent to various producers in order to find a producer for her album. Two alternative versions of the song exist, the acoustic version on No Kung Fu, and a studio demo with alternate lyrics.

Writing and inspirationEdit

The song's lyrics were written by Del Rey herself, and the lyrics have no other admitted author, however, it is apparent that the lyrics are inspired by Lolita, a literary classic by Vladimir Nabokov, as are many of her lyrics including "Diet Mountain Dew" and a song of hers by the same name, "Lolita". The obvious lyrics inspired by the book are mentioned primarily in the chorus, with the lyrics, "C'mon, you know you like (good)! little girls, you can be my daddy.", which relate to the plot. The book's protagonist (Humbert) becomes the step-father of a young girl which he becomes attracted to. However, the song primarily relates to Clare Quilty, who is a doppelgänger of Humbert and kidnaps Lolita during the plot. The lyrics relate to both characters as both act as father figures to Lolita. The title itself, "Put Me in a Movie" relates to only Quilty as he is a child pornographer who takes an interest in Lolita.

Background and description Edit

Del Rey created a homemade music video for the song, possibly in 2008, it featured clips of Del Rey herself singing along to the song and clips she gathered from old films, the usual style of her old music videos. There is also a second version that lacks some scenes and it is shorter than the original one.
