15 Best Soundtracks in Cinema History
It was a tough list to make, but we compiled a list of the 15 best soundtracks in cinema history. Agree? Disagree? Feel free to have your say below.
15. The Great Gatsby
“I ain’t got time for you baby,” because I’ve had The Great Gatsby soundtrack on repeat all day, so “Make up your mind sweet baby, right here, right now’s all we got.”
Now, in all seriousness, the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby plays a huge role in this cautionary tale of love, lust, luxury, deceit, and illusion. Catching the energy of the Roaring Twenties, the soundtrack plunges you straight in the Jazz Age, yet with a modern update.
Jay Z’s involvement with director Baz Luhrmann on his adaptation of Fitzgerald’s classic novel resulted in a tasteful blend of past and present music styles.
The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack features the voices of diverse and exciting musical artists such as Jay Z, will.i.am, Lana Del Rey, Beyonce, Gotye and many others. Together, they skillfully managed to distill the essence of one of the most flamboyant and rebellious eras in human history!
