Ibrawlator: Lana Del Rey’s “Young & Beautiful” & Adele’s “Skyfall,” Which Song Is Better?

Idolator Staff / April 22, 2013

In the past few months, two of pop’s most evocative storytellers made their way from the recording studio to the silver screen with two major soundtrack contributions: Adele and Lana Del Rey.

This week, the Born To Die chanteuse premiered her endlessly haunting, cinematic “Young & Beautiful,” the lead single from Baz Luhrmann’s much-buzzed about Gatsby film adaptation, which has already premiered to rave reviews. And of course, Adele’s 2012 James Bond epic theme song “Skyfall” was a critical and commercial triumph, winning the young British songstress an Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song and a Brit Award for Best British Single.

Now, it’s up to you decide: Which song do you prefer?
