I want to like it. I really do. It is good…but not as good as Florence And The Machine’s “Gatsby” song or Lana Del Rey’s contribution. Maybe knowing that Jay Z is producing the soundtrack and that Beyonce appears on it makes me critic it more than I should. Maybe it is because that Amy’s version is more powerful. It is a great tribute, but I take it as nothing more.
Diagnosis: Dunk it
