What do you get when Israel’s most fabulous electropop duo covers hipsterdom’s hardest working 1950’s-pinup-poster/hip-hop-video-girl drag act? Electropop magic, that’s what. So much magic that you might as well call this “Video Games” the next installment of Final Fantasy. (LoloUGH, sorry for that.)
Seriously, though, I absolutely adore the Young Professionals, and Lana Del Rey’s come to hold a very special and very campy place in my heart, so I’ve every reason to be smitten with this cover. Besides, keeping with Ms. Del Rey’s lyrics gives it the sort of gender bending twist I can’t refuse. Well played like your video games, Young Professionals. Very well played, indeed.
Much love to the Young Professionals’ Facebook page for this one. (You really should follow them, ladies.)
