Lorde Covers Bright Eyes for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, Does a Great Job

We've already heard a few songs from Lorde's very Lorde Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack. Now we have her cover of Bright Eyes' "Ladder Song." The song is great, and a great fit for the movie, with its conflicting feelings of loss and hope. Lorde does a good job Lorde-ifying it, swapping the sad keyboard for a sad church organ. It would be perfect for a scene in which Katniss prays to some deity that somehow seems both super ancient and super modern — like a dragon with an iPad.
