The Great Gatsby is regarded as a literary classic and Fitzgerald’s best work, and one of my favorite American authors.

His book has been made into film 5 times, including the latest version starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Now the soundtrack is getting as much attention as the movie, with Jay Z as the producer behind the soundtrack.

My favorite track so far is Emeli Sande’s version of ‘Crazy in Love’; it gets a ‘20s Jazz Age makeover with help from the Bryan Ferry Orchestra.

The Great Gatsby hits theatres on May 10th, while the soundtrack will be released on May 7th.
