American Horror Story: Freak Show 's anachronistic use of contemporary songs continued last night with a cover of Lana Del Rey 's "Gods & Monsters."

Two weeks in and American Horror Story: Freak Show is making it real tough for viewers. On one hand, it's difficult to stomach all the gory murders, killer clowns and visual oddities that the show spotlights every week, but on the other hand, it's even harder to miss out on the anachronistic musical performances Freak Show doles out each episode.

It's a show that features conjoined twins, a boy with lobster hands and a terrifying, murderous clown, yet the strangest part of Wednesday night's American Horror Story: Freak Show premiere came when Jessica Lange's Elsa performed a rendition of David Bowie 's Hunky Dory classic "Life on Mars?" The cover was jarring for two reasons: First, that German accent, and secondly, Bowie's track was released in 1971, but the show is based in 1952 in Jupiter, Florida. So, is time travel a subplot? As creator Ryan Murphy tells the Wall Street Journal , the use of Bowie was inspired by the anachronistic utilization of music by director Baz Luhrmann, who notably filled his films Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby with contemporary songs.
