You might love Lana Del Rey's music but I believe you can't fully appreciate her talent until you see other people try to pull of Lana's songs. We all love LDR for her beautiful, unique voice but it took perusing some Lana Del Rey covers to make me realize just how incredibly special her voice is. Though no one could ever hold a candle to Lana Del Rey, there are some truly talented individuals in the world who have taught me that, though only Lana pulls of Lana, there are still some phenomenal Lana Del Rey covers out there that will blow your mind.
You can find hundreds of covers of Lana Del Rey songs on YouTube that are, let's face it, pretty terrible. That's not to knock the brave souls daring to cover her, either. These are talented people we're talking about but Lana Del Rey is just not a sound that many people can emulate with success.
Thus, the people who can pull off a Lana Del Rey song stand out from the crowd pretty quickly. It is no small feat to sing a Lana Del Rey song and do her voice justice. To understand just what I'm talking about here, you have to see for yourself. So check out these 18 Lana Del Rey covers that will prove that, though no one can outdo Lana Del Rey, the people who come close are truly spectacular.

It's hard to pull off Lana's sultry sound but Natalie Lungley comes pretty close.

Miley's cover game is strong (like we're suprised).
