Tom thinks he's getting revenge.
Ironic because Tom is the liar from the start.
Tom thinks that Gatsby is a huge fake even though he is one himself. Scene 7: Waiting for Daisy Scene 8: The Murder Scene Scene 9: Gatsby's Funeral Gatsby's "Theme Song" Relates to Gatsby and how some people may view him
How in love Gatsby is with Daisy relates to "But soon enough you're gonna think of me, And how I used to be...me"
Gatsby just may be "Unwell"
Everyone thinks he's crazy
Gatsby standing up for himself Song Choice:
"Unwell" By Matchbox Twenty But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be...me If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody died Song Choice
"If Everyone Cared" By Nickelback Nick is the only one who is at Gatsby's funeral
It seems that nobody cares about what happened to Gatsby
All the people came and left his parties
Nobody ever really cared
All the people were selfish and ended up hurting everyone else If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark Song Choice:
"I Will Follow You Into the Dark" By Death Cab Cutie Gatsby is waiting for Daisy to call
He will continue to wait.
Gatsby even goes in his pool and shuts the lines for any other calls.
As he is waiting, little does he know he is leaving himself open to death.
He is literally following Daisy into the dark. Song Choice:
"Here Without You" By 3 Doors Down Gatsby is waiting outside Daisy's house
Daisy is all that is ever on his mind
Gatsby still thinks that she is his
He will not let go of the idea with her
She is always with him in his mind Song Choice:
"Pot Kettle Black" By Tilly and the Wall The trash washes up to shore
Even in this landlocked place
The shit gets thicker
It’s toxic
Get it out my face

The trash washes up to shore
Even in this landlocked place
The shit gets thicker
It’s toxic
Get it out my face
And don’t be surprised
If they don’t buy your lies
Some of us can see through
Your stained glass eyes

Pot kettle, pot kettle black
Talk that, talk that smack
Pot kettle, pot kettle black
Watch your, watch your back I'm here without you, baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me Song Choice:
"Ocean Avenue" By Yellowcard There's a piece of you that's here with me,
It's everywhere I go, it's everything I see.
When I sleep, I dream and it gets me by
I can make believe that you're here... tonight
That you're here... tonight

If I could find you now things would get better
We could leave this town and run forever
I know someway, somehow we'll be together
Let your waves crash down on me and take me away Song Choice:
"Dirty Little Secret" By All American Rejects Who has to know?
When we live such fragile lives
It's the best way we survive
I go around a time or two
Just to waste my time with you
You are the only one that needs to know

I'll keep you my dirty little secret
Don't tell anyone or you'll be
just another regret
My dirty little secret Song Choice:
"Feels like the first Time" By Foreigner I would climb any mountain
Sail across a stormy sea
If that's what it takes me baby
To show you how much you mean to me
And I guess it's just the woman in you
That brings out the man in me
I know I can't help myself
You're all in the world to me

It feels like the first time
Feels like the very first time
It feels like the first time
It feels like the very first time Song Choice:
"Hanging By A Moment" By Lifehouse Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started, I'm chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

Forgetting all I'm lacking, completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation, you take all of me now Song Choice:
"Run For Your Life" By the Beatles Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end ah little girl
