Lana Del Rey - Young and Beautiful

Taken from The Great Gatsby soundtrack, she co-wrote this song with Rick Nowels, who also produced it. The epic, orchestral ballad doesn't deviate much from Lana's own material, but this one is definitely more dramatic. The layered arrangement with gothic drums is absolutely dreamy. Lana's vocals are haunting and ethereal. The alternate Orchestral version is also gorgeous with the additional strings. It feels darker. Both versions are incredible.
