VA - THE GREAT GATSBY ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK (deluxe version)
producer : Baz Luhrmann + Anton Monsted
executive producer : Jay Z
i have no words to describe the amazingness of this motion picture soundtrack. totally lost for words. i haven’t watch the movie, (but i am so dying to see it, hopefully soon), yet i am already finding myself gushing over the songs from the movie.
i have always been a great fan of movies since i was a little girl, that is why some of my favorite albums of all times are OST of movies that i also enjoy (mostly). this inspires me to make a post soon regarding my most favorite movie soundtrack records of all times. which this album is clearly climbing up fast on that list.
the songs in this album are just brilliant! i always have a thing for Baz Luhrmann’s movies and their soundtracks: Moulin Rouge and not to forget Romeo + Juliet.
I love. I love. I love.
there is not a song in this album that i don’t love… my personal favorite must be the SBTRKT remix of Florence + The Machine’s Over the Love (of you). adoraaaa!
all in all, am just so enjoying this remarkable album <3
“While we acknowledge, as Fitzgerald phrased it, ‘the Jazz Age,’ and this is the period represented on screen, we — our audience — are living in ‘the Hip-Hop Age’ and want our viewers to feel the impact of modern-day music the way Fitzgerald did for the readers of his novel at the time of its publication.”
