Cigarettes and love are both very addictive, and in The Great Gatsby love turns out to be damaging to Gatsby. Cigarettes were looked at as a luxury and an elegant thing to do when in reality it slowly killed you just as love tricked Gatsby. His obsessive love for Daisy ends up killing him.

Alcohol advertisements are everywhere. They promise an unforgettable night and the best time of your life. What they don't advertise is that they get you intoxicated and can cause accidents.
In The Great Gatsby, Gatsby's love for Daisy is so strong and intoxicating that he fails to see how she doesn't truly love him as much as he does and that there really isn't a future for the both of them. Gatsby's ignorance leads to his death.
Skinny Love

This song shows how love can be easily lost because someone might want a relationship just for personal gain. The song explains how two people only hold onto the relationship because it give them a better social status.
In the Great Gatsby Tom Cheated on Daisy for Myrtle, who he has been married to for 5 years. The love for someone else can make you forget morals and right judgement. Love makes you do all sorts of shocking stuff.

This song relates to The Great Gatsby because the correlation of social status and love. Gatsby made it his life goal to have Daisy love him, and to do that he changed his social standings. With Gatsby being poor and Daisy being rich, Gatsby felt he was an inadequate lover for Daisy.

In trying to change himself for Daisy, Gatsby changed what made him a morally right person. Gatsby got into some bad business in an effort to make himself more appealing to Daisy and it changed himself morally.
