The Great Gatsby (2013) Soundtrack Pt.2

The Great Gatsby 392x392Universal Music finally released the track list for the Soundtrack to Baz Luhrman’s take on Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby. Seems like Jack White and Kanye (playing in my previous Gatsby post) get the company of Soundtrack Executive Jay-Z, his friends and his wife. 

The pop hip-hop soundtrack might fit pretty well with the larger-then-life production and art direction for the 2013 Great Gatsby movie (that was originally scheduled as the ultimate Christmas Cracker of the year 2012). Some new stars of which Emili Sandé and Bryan Ferry’s rework of ‘Crazy in Love’ should be fun.

Now why did Beyoncé have to redo Amy’s ‘Back to Black’… and how did it end up on the list? I think Baz should used his veto at this point and play the Moody Boys Refix of ‘Love is a Losing Game’. Loud. Like he did with ‘Love is Blindness’ by Jack White.
