Every once upon a dream–oops, I mean once in a while, an artist truly captures the mood of a motion picture as if they were a character in the story. There is no other perfect fit for a musical sleeping beauty than Lana Del Rey on the track "Once Upon A Dream". We all remember the cheery Disney classic song from our childhood, but you've never heard it like this. The song gets melodramatically revitalized in the upcoming movie Maleficent (starring Angelina Jolie).
Over a signature lush orchestral suite, Lana monotonically mopes in an eerie fashion. Going off of Maleficent's first trailer, the tone of the film is dark and mesmerizing, so this song leaves an accurate impression. While Lana's voice may not be for everyone, I think her intonation works magically on this track. If there was ever a time to sound sleepy, it should be on Sleeping Beauty's song right?
