Once Upon A Nightmare

February 06, 2014

Lana Del Rey does not disappoint with her Disney-commissioned cover of "Once Upon A Dream." It is a hair-raising, prescient hymn to the nightmare that will be Maleficent, the live-action take on Sleeping Beauty. Spooked with cinematic strings and Lana's spellbinding, saturnine voice, this tune can rival "Maleficent's Evil Spell," the eerie score that accompanies the eponymous enchantress' ignis fatuus in the original film.

Who can wait for the music video? Angelina Jolie should do a cameo. It would be coming full circle for her, seeing as she started out in music videos.

Buy Lana Del Rey's "Once Upon A Dream."
