Great Gatsby Party Promo And Soundtrack Sampler

The first of these videos is being called an extended TV spot. It’s a promo cut to one of the songs on the film’s soundtrack, something called A Little Party Never Killed Nobody and by Fergie, Q-Tip and Goon Rock. I think Satan himself must be feeling modest tonight for not demanding a credit even while he must have had a hand in it – this thing sounds truly awful.

But the promo does look tremendous.

Typically much better sounding are the other cuts on the soundtrack, which you can sample here in 30 second bits. Conspicuously absent are Jay-Z’s $100 Bill and Beyonce’s version of Back to Black.

A de-Eno’d Love is the Drug sounds like an awful idea but I think the quality of the song can shine through. That’s the one track I most want to hear more of, though Where the Wind Blows and Crazy in Love caught my imagination too, and Love is Blindness now feels pretty comfortably Gatsby-appropriate after almost a year of trailer use.

Irrespective of my feelings towards these tracks in isolation, I get what Luhrmann is playing at. In context, these might all work perfectly. There are certainly some songs in the grand Moulin Rouge mashup that I’d never dream of listening to outside of that film at the same time as knowing how they’re all part of it’s particular tapestry.

The Great Gatsby will be along on May 10th in the US and May 16th UK.
