Flavor of the Week: The Great Gatsby SoundtrackPosted: May 22, 2013
Recently, I have gone through two musical phases. In last Sunday’s post, I mentioned how I could not get out of bed because I was glued to the new JT album and pretended that I was the star of the “Mirrors” music video and acted out the entire song for a few hours. My second musical phase involves none other than The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. It is beautiful in so many ways, and has quickly made its way to the top of my “Most Played” list on iTunes. Just in case you have not heard it, I will provide you with a thoughtful review of the album, song by song, written in haiku form.1. “Bang Bang” – will.i.am Did they have auto Tune in the 1920’s? Awks for will.i.am 2. “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” – Fergie, Q-Tip & GoonRock A warehouse rave and Moulin Rouge give birth to Fergalicious song. 3. “Young And Beautiful” – Lana Del Rey Makes me cry every Time I hear it because I Think that I’m Daisy 4. “Love Is the Drug” – Bryan Ferry with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra Bryan Ferry, who Are you and what is this song. I don’t get it. 5. “Over the Love” – Florence & The Machine Perf for the album Makes sense in context of the Movie, finally 6. “Where The Wind Blows” – Coco O. of Quadron This makes me forget That I have OCD and I feel down to chill. 7. “Crazy in Love” – Emeli Sandé and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra I think that when I Sing along I sound just like I am Sasha Fierce 8. “Together” – The xx If you are a crack Head then you will enjoy This song. LOL 9. “Hearts a Mess” – Gotye Very eerie but Like a good song you know what I’m talking about? 10. “Love Is Blindness” – Jack White This song will play in The background when I’m giving Birth in my movie 11. “Into the Past” – Nero Weird breathing at start Better suited for Twilight Or a porno flick 12. “Kill and Run” – Sia Sia thinks she is Adele in this song but it’s OK I like it
Because this soundtrack is so incredible, go and see The Great Gatsby. Especially if you’ve read the book. If you haven’t read the book, go and see it anyways. Just don’t act like you’ve read the book because that would be pretentious and annoying.
