MP3: Lorde Covers “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Lorde tears for fears

Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” debuted 30 years ago, but it’s as poignant and relevant as ever here in 2013. 16 year old phenom Lorde covered the song for the upcoming dystopian film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters Friday. Lorde’s take is somehow more icy and grim than the original.

This isn’t most unique cover Lorde has done recently. Check out her live version of Kanye West and Chief Keef’s “Hold My Liquor”.
