The Great Gatsby Soundtrack- A Remarkably Extravagant Party

Published

on


And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.

 

Summers biggest movie will no doubt be The Great Gatsby (and trust me, we’ll have a review for it.) But the soundtrack is making news and soaring to the top of the charts with some of the greatest and most unexpected artists making an appearance. Its an event in itself, a large party if you will and for good reason. The album is so extravagant because its produced by non other than hip hop king himself, Jay Z and features an array of musical variations from pop to alternative rock, while incorporating touches from the Jazz Age. Jay’s opening song “$100 bills” pays homage to moments of revelations that Gatsby has throughout the movie.

 

We know what the soundtrack would be like if it were up to F. Scott Fitzgerald who hinted and downright mentioned lyrics and artists that he felt were appropriate in different moments of the story. But through the eye of Baz Luhrmann (the director) the music tells a different story. A more modern story with music from The XX, Gotye, will.i.am and Jack White, to name a few. Beyonce seduces as if Gatsby’s scorned lover and artists like Florence Welsh, Emeli Sande, and Lana Del Rey sing as if the “it” girls. The whole album is like a love child in honor of Gatsby. A love child from the jazz, electronic and hip hop genres. really and its extravagant, just how Gatsby likes things.

The album smells of extravagance; an essence of the Gatsby-era and should be listened to with a glass of bubbly in hand or while throwing a 20’s themed costume party. You can stream the album live on NPR before its May 7 release.

Best & Funniest Tweets from the Season 29 Premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

Dancing with the Stars Season 29 premiere best tweets

Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) season 29 premiered tonight (September 14) with a pretty impressive lineup. 

AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys, actress and real estate agent Chrishell Stause, and rapper Nelly all took the stage to show off their moves. 

But all eyes were on Tiger King’s Carole Baskin! There’s no denying everyone was watching to see her debut! 

I’d like to say that’s the craziest thing to happen in 2020, but unfortunately, the show is airing without an audience and with plenty of safety precautions including the judges sitting six-feet apart. 

Oh, and Tyra Banks replaced Tom Bergeron, which didn’t sit well with many on Twitter. 

Here are the best tweets from the premiere:
