Lana Del Ray gives a brilliant update to this song for the film Maleficent. It's a beautiful version. Her vocals are so rich and velvety and she has a real knack for invoking the emotion of a song, in this case giving it a very haunting and dark but beautiful tone.
The production on the song is also first rate - sparse and considered to give the vocal room to get hold of you and lure you in like a slightly hypnotic and possibly quite malevolent (or Maleficent) lullaby... so much so I couldn't help but download it after watching the film recently.
