Soundtrack Of The Great Gatsby

great gatsbyI’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 + JulietMulen 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 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?
