While the prospect of Beyoncé and Andre 3000 covering Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black" has many intrigued, one person who isn't a fan of the whole endeavour is the late singer's father. "I don’t think she brings anything to it," Mitch Winehouse told the Daily Mail. "I wasn’t asked for my permission if they could record it." But he then goes on to clarify that the filmmakers "have got to pay for the privilege, which is what they are doing. I can’t tell you how much it is but it’s a lot of money." So he's down with this if the price is right? Either way, the song has been completed and you can now hear the results.

Oh, so that's why Anna Kendrick released that video for "Cups." In addition to being a surprise, sequel-spawning box office hit, "Pitch Perfect" was also a smash soundtrack success that's still topping the Billboard charts in that category today. You would think that Universal Music Group might have done a better push for this, or at least raised some kind of awareness, but anyway a new EP of sorts of additional songs from the movie is here.

Aside from the visuals, perhaps the most striking aspect of Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby“ thus far has been the film's music. Luhrmann’s movies, particularly “Romeo + Juliet” and “Moulin Rouge!," have always been known for their lustrous soundtracks, and “The Great Gatsby” is no different in that regard. The xx are among the number of artists rounded up to provide tunes for the movie, and their song “Together,” which was written exclusively for the film, has just been made available to listen to in full. You can check it out below.

With music proving to be a key element in Baz Luhrmann's upcoming take on the classic American novel "The Great Gatsby," given how hard the push has been for the soundtrack, it's beginning to eclipse the fact that there are some very real movie stars in this thing. But today we have a bit of both as the nearly daily updates on 'Gatsby' continue.

"The Great Gatsby" promo train keeps rolling, and if the posters, trailers and various TV spots haven't been enough, the soundtrack has been coming with some heat, with a six minute preview dropping yesterday with the only full song to be unveiled so far being the unlistenable Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock with "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)."

The Great Gatsby
Yeah, we know -- it seems the "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack previews haven't stopped with listens to Nero, Lana Del Rey and Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock all arriving in recent days, but how about the whole damn thing?

It was just over a year or so ago that every music blog on the planet couldn't stop writing about Lana Del Rey, tracking her every move, breathlessly awaiting the release of her debut album. Then it arrived and everyone kind of shrugged, and her quick rise was followed by a cynical fall, cemented by a less than stellar performance on "Saturday Night Live." But she has continued to press on, and is still enough of a name to have worked her way onto "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack. And the results? Pretty much what you'd expect.

From Jake Gyllenhaal reading the audiobook to the 3D visuals to the Jay-Z produced soundtrack, "The Great Gatsby" is driving the hoop to cover the demographic known as: 15-34. That's where the money is at the box office and if you're dusting off a book that many kids associate with English class, you better make it worth your while. But that means for the rest of us, "The Great Gatsby" might be ear poison.
