Ranking Every Track On The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

by (@sllambe)

9. Emeli Sand√© and The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, “Crazy in Love”

SL: Emeli probably gets to have the most fun on this soundtrack: she gets to tackle Beyonce’s first solo single. Whereas Beyonce failed to do much with her cover, Emeli manages to have fun and infuse a jazzy flair to the track that feels like an homage rather than a attempt to outdo the queen. 3 1/2 out of 5

MO: There’s something sweeter and more wistful about Emeli’s delivery of this song than Beyonce’s that’s rather delightful. A fine cover. 4 out of 5.

10. The xx, “Together”

SL: This tragic track from The xx is hypnotizing as it is dramatic. It may be what you’d come to expect from the duo but it’s not as sleepy as “Angels” and some of their other new tracks. 4 1/2 out of 5

MO: ¬†There’s a part of me that recognizes that this song is a legitimately good song that I should enjoy and admire and there’s another part of me that is angry that the dance-y and jazzy part of the soundtrack is done. I’m the asshole who likes Gatsby’s beautiful shirts and lavish parties more than the tragedy. 3 out of 5.
