Lorde - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" (Tears For Fears Cover)

It seems like Twilight is passing the torch to The Hunger Games when it comes to up-and-coming artists featuring prominently on their soundtracks. Catching Fire’s soundtrack comes out next week and has a deep roster, including songs from the Weeknd, Coldplay, and the National. Pop’s newest darling Lorde also contributes a cover of Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” giving the iconic ’80s number a sinister touch. Hear her take on it below.

  5. I like it. Completely changed up the song and it works. It will grow on me as well but for now I’m really pleased with the outcome, especially the slamming percussion in the background
