Lana Del Rey Meets The Smiths in New Mash Up

Lana Del Rey travels back in time and across the pond in a new remix. A DJ by the alias Reborn Identity combined the singer’s haunting ‘Video Games’ with ‘This Charming Man’ by the Smiths in a seamless mash up.

The mix, called ‘This Charming Video Game,’ opens with Del Rey’s introductory sound and is set to her ‘Video Games’ clip. It doesn’t seem that much different from her original video — until the camera jumps to a singing Morrissey, and the videos for each artist are inter-spliced. Morrissey’s vocals are isolated and he sings over Del Rey’s instrumentals.

The video is just the latest in a series of LDR-inspired mixes. Her hit ‘Video Games’ was recently turned into an actual video game for a remix.

Del Rey’s vocals on a British hip-hop artist’s hook made their way to the Internet recently as well. Del Rey recorded the duet with rapper Smiler in 2010 when she was recording in the studio next to his. The tune on the hook, ‘Big Spender,’ is originally from the Broadway musical ‘Sweet Charity.’ On his YouTube page, Smiler wrote, “Well done to my girl Lana Del Rey on her No. 1 album — proud to have her doing the vocals on ‘Big Spender.’

These should tide us over until she finally gets on tour again!
