'Great Gatsby' soundtrack: A selection

Songs from "The Great Gatsby's" Jay-Z-produced soundtrack have been popping up all over the place online.

Some of them, like Fergie's booming, energetic cut with Q-Tip and GoonRock, "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)," you'll recognize from the trailers:

But there's also the xx's song, "Together":

And Sia's "Kill and Run":

Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful":

Plus Florence + the Machine's "Over the Love":

A leaked version of Beyoncé's cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" with Andre 3000, a snippet of which we've heard in one of the ad spots for the Baz Luhrmann-directed adaptation, has also surfaced (watch out for the language):

If you want a quick overview of what the entire 14-song soundtrack will sound like, check this out:

So far, Jack White's "Love is Blindness" is one of our faves. What do you think of what you're hearing thus far?

The full "Great Gatsby" soundtrack will be available next Tuesday, May 7, ahead of the film's debut on May 10.

    I walked out of Moulin Rouge, I thought it was the tackiest thing I've ever seen (and I like B grade horror) because of the music and how they made it almost completely comical the whole way through. Has anyone seen Rock of Ages? It was as lame as that to me. Since then I haven't watched any Baz film, not Australia, or any others. I do wanna hear the Beyonce do Amy Winehouse tho.

    Really? Awful. This is the soundtrack for a movie set in the jazz age of the 1920s? Thank goodness for the few redeeming Bryan Ferry clips that at least remind the viewer of the time frame in which the movie takes place.

      If you didn't like Moulin Rouge, don't see this film. Baz Lurhmann did the same there, which was brilliantly add anachronistic music to a period piece. Not a single song from MR was from the era. It's not for everyone but I am dying to see if Lurhmann can make the first decent film where others have failed.

    • It's like this...

      Period films more often reflect the time in which they were made than they do the time they are about. Very few films set in the past are true to that particular time period.

    So far, it's Florence followed by Sia followed by Fergie.
