Fergie, Q-Tip drop 'Great Gatsby' song 'A Little Party Never Killed Nobody': Hear it here

F. Scott Fitzgerald and Fergie, together at last: the Black Eyed Peas member, aided by Q-Tip and GoonRock, contributed a song to the Jay-Z-produced soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming The Great Gatsby adaptation.

Of course, Luhrmann’s movies have a memorable musical history, full of quality original tracks like Radiohead’s “Exit Music (For a Film)” (written for Romeo + Juliet) and Moulin Rouge‘s chart-topping “Lady Marmalade” from Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Pink, and Missy Elliott.

But does the genre-hopping, Fergie-led “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” stand up to its predecessors? We’re not so sure. It doesn’t help that Ferg’s titular sentiment doesn’t quite mesh with the message of, you know, The Great Gatsby, but perhaps the song is meant to foreshadow the downfall at novel’s end.

Or maybe not! Give the song a listen below and let us know what you think:

Vanessa Hudgens drops 'Spring Breakers' inspired song '$$$ex': Hear it here

Can you not get enough of the new Harmony Korine movie Spring Breakers? Are you intrigued but still unsure about committing to 90 minutes of guns, drugs, Disney starlets in balaclavas and bikinis, and James Franco?

Either way, Vanessa Hudgens has you covered. The Spring Breakers star has released a new song called “$$$ex,” inspired by the film. Produced by Rock Mafia (Miley Cyrus’ “Can’t Be Tamed,” Demi Lovato’s “You’re My Only Shorty”), it comes complete with a hallucinogenic video that probably isn’t safe for Lil Wayne to watch.

This week’s Jukebox was full of betrayal and rekindled romance — sometimes in the same breath.

First track from 'Oblivion' score by M83 hits the web -- listen to it here

The electronic music of French band M83 has appeared in dozens of movies, commercials and TV episodes, including ABC’s Revenge, BBC ads for the 2012 Olympics and the striking trailer for last year’s Cloud Atlas. But not until now have any of the band members written music specifically for a film. Anthony Gonzalez of M83 found his first film scoring gig in Tom Cruise-starrer Oblivion, which you can now get a sampling of — one track from the score was released online today.

The sci-fi flick is an appropriate first scoring gig for Gonzalez, given the band’s galaxy namesake and the spacey, celestial quality of their music. Gonzalez created Oblivion‘s score with TRON: Uprising composer Joseph Trapanese. Listen to this synth-driven first track, “StarWaves,” which the other M83 band members also contributed to, below: READ FULL STORY

'Spring Breakers' soundtrack streaming online: Skrillex, Rick Ross, more

spring-breakers-soundtrack

The soundtrack for Spring Breakers, the upcoming movie from arty-bizarro cult-favorite director Harmony Korine (Kids, Gummo), doesn’t hit streets until next Tuesday, but you can listen to its soundtrack now thanks to a stream at Pitchfork.

As promised (warned?),  Skrillex produced the original score for Spring Breakers, which also brings in Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, Wacka Flocka Flame, and, interestingly, a collaboration between James Franco and Florida rapper Dangeruss.

Their duet, titled “Hangin’ With Da Dopeboys,” supports Franco’s claim that Dangeruss — not reality star turned rapper and real-life irreality star Riff Raff – served as the inspiration for his Spring Breakers character Alien, a white, spectacularly corn-rowed rapper from Florida.
