Lana Del Rey - Once Upon A Dream
Andrew’s got his hands full tonight so you guys are getting 2 Sundays this week. Aren’t you lucky. Here at Soundboard, Lana Del Rey is kind of a controversial figure. At least 2 of us have had the experience of, despite our surface-level distaste for her as an artist, getting hooked on one of her songs. This week we got a new teaser trailer for Maleficent, Disney’s upcoming dark re-imagining of the classic movie Sleeping Beauty**, in which debuted Lana’s sultry cover of the sweet retro ditty.
As a Disney fan (and who isn’t), and as a fan of covers, I kind of love this. I’ve been whistling it all day, even drawing attention from a few passersby as I headed out from work this afternoon. I’m pretty sure that means it’s worth posting.
Anyway, have a good night, guys. And be careful around spindles. Unless you want Angelina Jolie to curse you… in which case, at least make sure the needle is sterilized.
**EDIT: Looks like I got my Disney vault classics mixed up there and said Cinderella instead of Sleeping Beauty. Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Oops!
