LANA DEL REY – BLUE VELVET

Blue Velvet is a 1986 American mystery film written and directed by David Lynch. The movie exhibits elements of both film noir and surrealism. The film starsKyle MacLachlanIsabella RosselliniDennis Hopper and Laura Dern. The title is taken from The Clovers‘ 1955 song of the same name. Although initially detested by some mainstream critics, the film is now widely acclaimed,[1][2] and earned Lynch his second Academy Award nomination for Best Director. As an example of a director casting against the norm, Blue Velvet is also noted for re-launching Hopper’s career and for providing Rossellini with a dramatic outlet beyond the work as a fashion model and a cosmetics spokeswoman for which she had until then been known.

Inspired by the film, Lana Del Rey recorded a cover version of Bobby Vinton‘s classic rendition of the song “Blue Velvet” in 2012.

I usually don’t like covers. But she has a stunning voice. Don’t you agree?
