Young and Beautiful: The Great Gatsby Soundtrack

Summer is officially here, and what better way to finish up our week of Gatsby here on readthiswatchthisplaythis than with some of the latest film’s music?

Lana Del Rey’s Young and Beautiful serves as the romance theme in Luhrmann’s Gatsby flick, hinted at numerous times as we watch Daisy and Gatsby’s tale unfold.

Gotta say, I don’t know much about Lana Del Rey and wouldn’t consider myself to be a fan per se, but I do really enjoy this song and feel that it fits the themes and tone of the movie perfectly.

Enjoy your summery weekend everyone!
