#MellowMonday: Lana Del Rey – ‘Once Upon A Dream’

Hello everyone and welcome to Muzik Speaks’ Disney Week!

Malficent

To kick things off I have chosen Lana Del Rey’s cover of ‘Once Upon A Dream’ from Maleficent.

The original song comes from Sleeping Beauty (1959), and Lana Del Rey’s new cover from Maleficent (2014).

The newer film serves as a prequel for the 1959 film, showing the story of sleeping beauty through the perspective of the antagonist, Maleficent. Both films are amazing, probably because they’re both made by Disney!

The main actress, Angelina Jolie specifically chose Lana Del Rey to perform this song and I’m glad she did; it’s a perfect choice!

I love her adaptation, she brings some modern vibes to it without loosing out on the overall sentimentality of the original. The production of this track is just as amazing, you can hear a subtle effect on the vocals. Which just goes to show how much attention there was to detail!

I really like this track, it’s probably one of my favourite modern Disney songs. Are you a fan of these twists on old films?

Keep posted to read about more Disney tracks this week and share with you friends!
