Rock Chick of the Day: Lana Del Rey – Summer Wine

Posted by falconi5 on April 23, 2015

lanaAn extremely cool cover version of the song made famous by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood. This one is not quite as groovy as the version featuring the Corrs and Bono, but this one is damn cool in its own right.  This version features boyfriend Barrie James O’neill in the Hazelwood role.

Lana Del Rey is no stranger to taking iconic cover songs and making them her own. Here is her pretty close to the original version of Chelsea Hotel No. 2
