Adam Lambert vs. Lana Del Rey – Sound Off
Adam Lambert is on a roll! The glam pop-rocker is the reigning champ of our Sound Off for three days in a row, snagging another overwhelming victory against Jason Mraz in yesterday's song face off. Today, we are pitting Adam Lambert's 'Better Than I Know Myself' against up-and-coming singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey and her latest single 'Born to Die.'
On the ballad 'Better Than I Know Myself,' Lambert delivers glass-shattering vocals during the refrain as he sings about that special connection that lovers have despite the fights and struggles. On 'Born to Die,' Del Rey also croons about relationship problems in her smoky and sultry voice -- even though the spark seems to be fading between her and her man, Del Rey won't give up on rediscovering that passion. Both of the songs are slower tunes, boasting a heavy backbeat consisting of clashing 808's. However, Lambert incorporates synth into 'Better Than I Know Myself,' whereas Del Rey keeps it classic with a string section.

Rules of ‘Sound Off’:
There’s only one rule for our ‘Sound Off’ series: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight days, it is retired to PopCrush’s ‘Sound Off’ Hall of Fame. With tons of great tracks coming out everyday day, we have to give other artists a chance to win!
