I’ve listened couple of songs, I loved adaptations and wasn’t able to resist to do little post about them.
Baz Luhrmann’s movies are known for their memorable and imaginative soundtracks – Romeo + Juliet, Mulen Rouge – and his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby is no exception. The soundtrack of the movie takes some of the biggest names in contemporary pop – Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Andre 3000, Lana Del Rey, Jack White, the xx, Florence + the Machine, Gotye, Emeli Sande – and merges their modern sound with the brassy style of the Jazz Age, when great story takes place. You can listen sampler on the website http://thegreatgatsby.warnerbros.com/. But… You can listen couple songs already.
Emeli Sande feat. Bryan Ferry Orchestra covers Beyonce “Crazy In Love”
Beyonce feat. Andre 3000 covers Amy Winehouse “Back To Black”
I know East Village Radio is annoying but unfortunately I was not able to find without 😦 But you can still hear beauty of the song and I believe Amy Winehouse would be proud of the interpretation…
I’m waiting for this movie and especially because of the soundtrack. You can pre-order here. What do you think about the songs?
