Today’s Sound-Tracking features excerpts from the distinctive and eminently listenable soundtrack for “The Great Gatsby”. Mixing up a traditional score courtesy of Craig Armstrong with a bevy of stylised numbers from contemporary pop sensations, the film’s soundscape captures the razzle-dazzle of 1920s Americana along with the tragic themes of Fitzgerald’s original text. Selected for your pleasure are Fergie’s “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” and a pick from Armstrong’s more traditional, but no less immersive contribution. It’s one of the most vivacious and digestible arrangements of the year.
