With the production of the upcoming film version of The Great Gatsby, an appropriate music selection must be made for the movie. The song’s placement in the film, such as which scene it will be played in, its lyrics and its overall theme must be analyzed in order to find its suitability for the movie. As music producer, I have chosen the song “I Miss You” by Aaron Hall to be incorporated into The Great Gatsby film. This song is appropriate for the film because its lyrics and emotional feel match the novel’s themes of the heartbreak of lost love and desperation to restore the past.
