Once Upon a Dream

I recently discovered the singer Lana Del Ray. Grace loves her. Here is what Wikipedia says about her:

She has been described as a “self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra” and “Lolita lost in the hood[96] and her music has been noted for its cinematic sound and its references to various aspects of pop culture, particularly that of 1950s and ’60s Americana.[97][98][99][100][101][102][103] Rolling Stone noted that Del Rey enjoys playing the role of lounge singer.[104] Del Rey has also been called “a torch singer of the internet era[105] and “the anti-Gaga.”

I listened to some of her music and felt like I was back in the Twin Peaks days, hypnotized by her voice.  Then I found her singing Once Upon a Dream, a song from the Disney movie, which will be released in May, Malificent. She is breathy and breathless at the same time, as if the song were a little puzzle knot that keeps coming around again.  Malificent is the evil queen in the Sleeping Beauty story, played by Angelina Jolie. Watch the movie trailer and listen to Lana Del Ray singing this eerie version of the song:
