Emeli Sandé & Bryan Ferry Launch Big Band Assault on Beyonce's "Crazy in Love"

At this point, it'd just be easier to create a separate section of the site for all Great Gatsby-related content. From what we've heard, the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's upcoming re-imagination has ranged from beautiful to middling to terrible, but Emeli Sandé and art-rock icon Bryan Ferry's big band cover of Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" veers towards the unique, yet inconsequential. 

Soundtrack executive producer Jay-Z and Co. get credit for overhauling the original track to align more with what Jay Gatsby would listen to during his champagne-filled debaucheries. Points for that and all. The cover above ain't replacing the original anytime soon, but if we treat this one as a fun curio, we can all enjoy.
