Once Upon a Dream
Dark undertones exemplified The original lyrics and uplifting melody cast this song in such a happy tune... back in the day. With Lana's voice, her delivery, and unique take on this piece makes it darker, scarier, and down right spooky. The lyrics take on an almost sinister meaning in this rendition.
Excellent!!! This is the Lana Del Rey I've been waiting for!! Her rendition of "Once Upon a Dream" is much better to the okay "Young and Beautiful". I now love that the tone of the song is dark to match the style of the film, while still remaining true to the original song we all know by heart and love from Walt Disney's animated masterpiece. Get this song and fall in love with it again!!!!
Dark and beautiful! I see a bunch of people bashing on it saying that it's depressing and "too dark". Does anyone of them even realize that's the tone of the movie this is from? Maleficent is a dark movie, and this fits beautifully with it! I applaud Lana for redesigning this song into a great version that leaves the listener haunted in a good way.
A Dream turned into Reality The sad core & elegent Lana Del Rey, has once again touched the heart of her fans through her beautiful style and rhythm of her voice. I truly enjoy this beautiful song, and all her previous songs because Lana Del Rey is legendary, spectacular, & divine.
Phenomenal Being a Lana Del Rey fan I somewhat knew what to expect after hours of listening to her albums. However, she managed to completely transform my perception of her music and vocal capabilities in this hauntingly beautiful rendition of one of the most classic Disney songs. Her voice captures the lingering presence of something dangerous, such as Maleficent herself, and gives it a darker beauty and atmospheric quality. I'm so excited to see this film and hear more!
Woah. Who knew one of the most romantic songs in Disney can be turned into the creepiest? But Lana Del Ray completely nails it in this eerie transformation that can make any skin crawl in a fantastic way. I was unsure of Maleficent the same way I was unsure about Frozen. Then they release something in the last second that blows all predetermined thoughts out of the water and gets me hyped. For Frozen, that was the Elsa trailer. For this, a beautiful creepy song that sets my hopes so high for the film it represents. Man I hope it's better than Oz: The Great and Powerful, but if this song is any indication it will blow all expectations out of the water! Amazing.
