Lyrics
The song "Stolen" by Dashboard Confessional is able to fit in with The Great Gatsby because the song is talking about how the main person has fallen for someone who doesn't necessarily love them back, and they are completely head over heels for them and everything they do, but they are losing time together. In the text Fitzgerald wrote, "The officer looked at Daisy while she was speaking, in a way that every young girl wants to be looked at some time, and because it seemed romantic to me I have remembered the incident ever since. (page 75)" In the first stanza of the lyrics it says, "Before the gold and glimmer have been replaced, another sun soaked season, fades away." This relates to the color motif in Gatsby, referencing gold and the sun. I believe this also relates because this song takes place during the summer, as well as the book and the lyrics reference "gold and glimmer" which relate to the wealth of the people that live in East Egg. Also, the lyrics say, "Clear liquor and cloudy-eyed, too early to say goodnight." This relates to the parties that Gatsby hosts, and how the people who attend drink and become tired, but they stay out all night anyway. The lyrics also say, "You spin around in your highest heels, you are the best one, of the best ones, we all look like we feel." This also relates to Gatsby because he believes that Daisy is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. There are also many moments in the book where the characters cover themselves up with a mask, but no matter how hard they try, you can tell how they really feel just by looking at them.

I think this song would belong in the part of the movie when it is a flashback to Gatsby and Daisy five years before because it was when Daisy had first stolen Gatsby's heart, and when they had to say goodbye to each other for the first time.
Lyrics
The song "Devil Town" by Bright Eyes relates to The Great Gatsby because throughout the song, the lyrics repeat "I was living in a devil town, didn't know it was a devil town, oh lord it really brings me down about the devil town." This relates to the book, Nick specifically, because when he first moved to West Egg he didn't know the drama of the area, nor did he know what living their was all about. The devil is also associated with the darker colors, which in the book are described through the Valley of Ashes. The darker colors are also associated with emotions. I think the devil represents the true inner emotions of the characters in Gatsby. The lyrics also say "All of my friends were vampires, I didn't know they were vampires, it turns out I was a vampire myself in the devil town." Vampires are white, as is it a color that is mainly associated with the characters in The Great Gatsby, especially Daisy. She dresses herself in white and makes herself look clean and pristine, but really on the inside, she's torn apart and unhappy.

I would put this song in when Nick realizes how he has

The song "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses relates to the part of the book when Gatsby first sees Daisy for the first time in five years. "She's got eyes of the bluest skies, and if they thought of rain, I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain." These lyrics represent Daisy, and how Gatsby would feel when looking at her. She has blue eyes, and Gatsby would do anything for her. He has done everything so far in his life just to get her back. "Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place, where as a child I'd hide, and pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by." In these lyrics, I believe that it relates to how Gatsby refuses to move on and lives in the past because when the song references the girls hair as a place to hide in, Gatsby wants to live completely in the past with Daisy, running back to his younger days. "Can't relive the past? Why of course you can!"

I would put this song in the part of the movie where Daisy and Gatsby leave the city together because the last few lyrics in the song are about not knowing where to go, and that is the point where they are.
