I don’t know about you but ever since the new trailer for the upcoming remake film adaptation The Great Gatsby was released, I have been enthralled with the music Baz Luhrman and his team decided to use in it. It’s not so much the JayZ/Kanye West song “No Church in the Wild” at the beginning that grabbed me (though that is a great song I think to illustrate the tensions between lavish hedonistic lifestyles, the “worship” of wealth, and its connection or lack thereof to a higher power that existed in the 20s and today), but this song, an original of U2’s called “Love is Blindness” sung by Jack White. He apparently did this cover as a part of the 20th anniversary of the 1991 album Achtung Baby. While the original version was calm and mellow, this version is so passionate and severely emotive.
My question to you is, what other movie would you say this song is perfect for if you should choose the music for its soundtrack?
