As the first single off of the The Great Gatsby: Music from Baz Luhrmann’s Film soundtrack, Lana Del Rey’s ‘Young And Beautiful’ grew to become one of the most popular songs of the summer. In May, the song peaked at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 List. Shortly after, the song ranked third on the Hot Rock Songs Chart, making it her first top-ten hit on a major U.S. chart. Quickly gaining notoriety all around the world, the song reached the top 10 in Greece and Israel as well as making it to #1 in Belgium. Talk about an international superstar.
The last time we heard from Lana, her hit single ‘Video Games‘ received the remix treatment from just about every producer in the game. We had a feeling that Lana’s ‘Young And Beautiful’ would follow down the same path. Over the course of the past few months, remixes of the song continued to pop up left and right. DJ’s just could not stay away from Lana’s powerfully haunting yet surprisingly somber lyrics. Just yesterday, our good friend Kaskade released a free download of his version that he has been using to close out his summer sets. So far, it stands as our favorite remix of Lana’s original. However, we wanted to include some of the other popular versions so that you can make the final decision on a favorite. Make your pick after the break.
