There is a pretty swanky film adaptation of the novel The Great Gatsby on the way from Baz Luhrmann (of Moulin Rouge! and Romeo + Juliet fame). This tune featured in its trailer.

Now, I am certainly no fan of U2 or Jack White, so I wasn’t exactly clued into the history of this song when I first heard it, but I was certainly blown away when I found out. It is super rad! Who would’ve thought a product born from two things I didn’t really like could create something I very much like? While the original version is a rather sedated and muted affair, Jack White’s cover is animalistic: it’s primal and wild and totally doesn’t like the kind of stuff you’d associated with either group.
