Ranking Every Track On The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

7. Florence and the Machine, “Over the Love”

SL: The best and worst part about this song is how much of a Florence track it sounds like. I would have loved to see her take more of a risk here. Instead we get a a B-side from her Ceremonials LP. 3 out of 5

MO: I’m a massive Florence fan and this song is such a disappointment to me. I agree it feels like a B-side from Ceremonials, but her B-sides are usually experimental and bold. This song is not only playing it safe, but is too on the nose for me. Still, it’s not a bad song…I’ve just heard it before. 3 out of 5.

8. Coco O. of Quadron, “Where the Wind Blows”

SL: On this track, Coco has the pleasure of channeling Lina and other singers that combine old school jazz sounds with modern R&B. It’s a fun, light track. 4 out of 5

MO: I think this might actually be my favorite song on the soundtrack. It’s a perfect blend of old and new and the lyrics feel like they could be from a modern single woman stalking the town or a fresh faced flapper Charleston-ing in a pool of champagne. 5 out of 5.
