Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #166 – “Where the Wind Blows,” from The Great Gatsby
166. “Where the Wind Blows,” from The Great Gatsby
Our second Gatsby tune. A throwback kinda tune, taking an old-timey piano and then throwing a beat on it. It totally works, though it’s kinda one-note. It doesn’t do some of the stuff the other songs from this movie do. Still, it’s got a great chorus on it and really espouses a lot of the themes of extravagance that permeate those Gatsby parties.
