Mesmerized. Those of you who follow my Blog know what a huge Fan of Lana Del Rey I am and although I’ve been living off Snippets of her Young & Beautiful for the past couple weeks, I finally got to hear more of it today when screening The Great Gatsby 3-D. In the Film there also is a gorgeous Orchestral Version of the Song and of all the Tracks heard in the Film, this is definitely the most pronounced and fitting of where Baz Luhrmann is going.
Although it takes a few listens, I challenge you not to fall in love with it after seeing The Great Gatsby 3-D.
Say what you will about Del Rey’s Vocals, but the really, really odd thing is that if any other sang this, I wouldn’t be as emphatic about it. There is something inherently lonely and cinematic about Lana Del Rey‘s Performance.
