Transcript of Songs that relate to The Great Gatsby

Songs that relate to The Great Gatsby
Numb - August Alsina
- Song describes the second time Nick is drunk (with Tom and his side women)

- "she was already on deck 'fore i met her"

-the bridge of the song shows how drunk Nick and the others were

-"I had one, two, three too many
I’m f***ed up, four chicks with me
I’m loud, took about five shots
Six bottles I just copped
Twisted, turnt up, 24/7"

Hey there Delilah - plain white t's
- Song demonstrates the love that Gatsby has for her during his absence

- "whats it like in nyc, im a thousand miles away"

-"I know times are getting hard
But just believe me, girl
Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar (replaced with Gatsby's illegal activities)
We’ll have it good
We’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good "

Started from the bottom - Drake
- Portraying Gatsby, very poor to rich

-"Now I'm on the road, half a million for show"

-"Boys tell stories about the man
Say I never struggled, wasn’t hungry, yeah, I doubt that"

-We don’t like to do too much explaining
Story stayed the same through the money and the fame

Here without you - 3 doors down
- Perfect to describe Gatsby waiting for Daisy

-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

-Scenes after he drops off Daisy at Buchanan
Hit and Run - Lana Del Rey
- Perfect song for Myrtle (not only because of the title)

-First stanza of the song explains that she has a man that's rich but has a girl

-"Pick me up in your white Lamborghini
London town, you’ll watch out while I’m singing
Glamorous on the stage, boy, believe me
Keep your girl back, no competing"

- Chorus of the song
