Music: Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful”

Lana Del Rey’s song for the upcoming cinematic adventure The Great Gatsby (out May 7th), which is a remake and rendition of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s book, is hauntingly appropriate. Not only is it perfect for the Baz Luhrmann film, but the song itself is simple and beautiful. There are now two versions, the original and one with an accompanying orchestra.

Even if you hate/find Lana to be inauthentic, I think at this point you have to just fold and admit this song is awesome. I absolutely cannot tell which I like better.

An epic soundtrack indeed:
