The Great Gatsby is coming. And as mainstream, as cliché, as ‘whatever’, you know you’ll see it! Why? Because everybody will. It’s the new Avatar. The new Titanic. It has that humungous dimension making it appealing beyond any logical resistance. Because, in the end, we’re just living in packs, following the alphas. And the alphas (which, in our modern society, translate by ‘the marketing departments’) tell us to go see The Great Gatsby.
To listen to The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. Because it has all these big names, all these main trends and currents and you’ll love it. Because the Alphas say you will. And I will, you will, blindly listen to them. To the Alphas. Because we all secretly love to be told what to do, what to wear, where to go, what to watch and what to listen.
Because… Love is Blindness! Jack White’s cover of U2’s classic. Irresistible. Better than the real thing, like the U2s used to say! Hit the jump to experience Jack White’s musical flawlessness!
Have you discovered AHK-toong BAY-bi? It’s an unreservedly brilliant cover albums with all the U2 hits as interpreted by all these amazing contemporary artists (below you’re find my favorite, as covered by Depeche Mode). Among which the very talented musical genius that is Jack White. And this particular ‘Love is Blindness’ cover has been included on The Great Gatsby’s soundtrack. Because it has the right amount of desperation and love combined in one explosive tune. Like many of Jack White’s tunes are.
I do hope you enjoy this one, and the second coming right after it. It’s a covers day. It’s a big hits day. It’s a Blind day.
