SOUNDTRACK FOR THE GREAT GATSBY
Daisy Buchanan: Modest Mouse - Float On
Mostly focused around Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda, Daisy is a wonderful young person from Louisville, Kentucky. She is Nick's cousin and the object of Gatsby's adoration. As a youthful debutante in Louisville, Daisy was amazingly famous among the military officers positioned close to her home, including Jay Gatsby. Gatsby lied about his experience to Daisy, asserting to be from a well off family to persuade her that he was deserving of her. The verses of this melody portrays Daisy superbly. She is wealthy to the point that she doesn't need to think about anything. Like Zelda Fitzgerald, Daisy is enamored without hardly lifting a finger, and material extravagance. She is fit for warmth (she appears to be really enamored with Nick and periodically appears to love Gatsby truly), however not of maintained unwaveringness or consideration. The first line of the song is "I backed my bar into a cop car the other day." While Daisy never collided with a police officer, she did get in a car accident. Also, one of the lines is "bad news comes, don't you worry even when it lands." This line is exemplified through Daisy (and Tom) just moving whenever something bad happens. Daisy doesn't need to worry, and her life is essentially one big "lazy river" in which she is just floating.
Jay Gastby: Les Misérables - Who Am I?
From his initial youth, Gatsby scorned destitution and yearned for riches and advancement he dropped out of St. Olaf's College after just two weeks on the grounds that he couldn't bear the janitorial employment with which he was paying his educational cost. In spite of the fact that Gatsby has for a long while been itching to be rich, his fundamental inspiration in getting his fortune was his affection for Daisy Buchanan, whom he met as an adolescent military officer in Louisville before leaving to battle in World War I in 1917. Gatsby instantly became hopelessly enamored with Daisy's emanation of extravagance, effortlessness, and appeal, and misled her about his own particular foundation keeping in mind the end goal to persuade her that he was adequate for her."Who am I?Can I conceal myself for evermore?Pretend I'm not the main I was before?And must my name until I dieBe no more than an alibi?Must I lie?"The song seems absolutely perfect to describe Gatsby. In fact, Gatsby isn't even Gatsby. He is James Gatz. Gatsby's entire life has been a sham. He plays a role, and I feel that if Gatsby were a real man, he would often ask himself whom he really is, especially knowing that he has played the role of Jay Gatsby for such a long time. Valjean's statement of "if I speak, I am condemned" is very true to Gatsby. Gatsby is so silent and secretive, most likely for fear of being "condemned" by...
