*Disney Week* Jam of the Week: "Once Upon a Dream" by Lana Del Rey

What better way to inaugurate Disney Week on Tommy Time than to award Jam of the Week to a new rendition of a Disney classic?

Maleficent, a live action retelling of the beloved classic Sleeping Beauty, hits theaters in May, but the lead single from its soundtrack just hit the internet. Lana Del Rey was reportedly handpicked by the film's star, Angelina Jolie, to deliver this haunting, airy cover of the "Once Upon a Dream". (So this is pretty much the only thing the future Mrs. Pitt has done right.)

The film itself doesn't look amazing, but I am loving this song. It's minimal production and gloomy vocals make it Lana's own, but it still honors the original. Slayed. Hail the Queen of Soundtracks!
