Lana Del Rey for New Tim Burton Movie!

I am such a Tim Burton fangirl, guys. If he makes it, I'll watch it! His trademark kooky-creepy-lovely aesthetic is definitely a big reason, along with the inevitable casting of Helen Bonham Carter and/or Johnny Depp. I'll never get tired of them doing Tim Burton! But I have to say, one of my favorite aspects of Tim Burton movies is the music. Burton is known (as with the casting) for having favorite collaborations, and one of his most perennially successful partnerships is with composer Danny Elfman. I don't know if anyone can harness "magical," "whimsical" and "creepy" quite as beautifully and inventively as he can. I was pretty psyched to hear that he's also doing the soundtrack for Burton's latest movie, "Big Eyes." This one is a little different than his usual, it looks like - it is the true story of artist Margaret Keane and her struggles against her husband, who claimed her works portraying big-eyed girls were his own. What I found a little strange is that the title song is written not by Elfman, it seems - but by Lana Del Rey, who is also performing the song. I like the song, which was just released in a lyric video preview (attached here). I'm not sure, however, that it has quite the impact of some of my favorite Elfman pieces. People are already asking whether it will be big enough for an Oscar nomination. I have to say I'm not completely blown away - but I did enjoy it. What do you think? Do you like the song on its own? Is it worthy to stand beside Elfman's music?

Sorry, there are Jason Schwartzman scenes in this. I had to keep rewinding and making awkward heavy breathing sounds.
@danidee You and me both!! @sanityscout I think that you can still feel the hints of Elfman in here, even though it was written by Lana. I definitely felt that it really suited the look of the trailer as well!
