listen: “over the love” – florence + the machine

Florence-Great-Gatsby

Confession Time: my favorite movie, from about age 12 to age 16, was Baz Luhrmann’s adaption of Romeo and Juliet.  If you were too busy being cool in the late 1990s, that was the one with the Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio.  Yeah, that’s right – my teenage self was into DiCaprio way before Titanic.

My second favorite thing about the movie – after the aforementioned DiCaprio, of course – was the soundtrack.  For a 12 year old, it felt pretty edgy: Garbage, Radiohead, Butthole Surfers.

Now, Baz Luhrmann is dipping back into the 10th grade English curriculum with a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby, due out in theaters on May 10th, and the soundtrack is shaking up to be just as good as that Romeo and Juliet tape was to my 6th grade self.
