Lorde– Everybody Wants to Rule the World
This song goes out to the girl who didn’t know Tears for Fears was the original creator of the ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World‘ beat until young adulthood (the girl is me). The first time I heard any part of the song was when Nas sampled it (I had a few older cousins who were really into rap and I started listening by osmosis). Anyways, this newly released cover for the upcoming Hunger Games movie made me think back to the time I DID hear the original on the radio and reacted a lot like this:
It’s a bit of a shame Lorde’s cover isn’t longer though, I easily could have listened to another couple minutes of it. If you feel the same way I included the original and sampled version by Nas below for you to fill your time with.
