We've already heard what Lana Del Rey and Beyonce have served up for The Great Gatsby soundtrack, but now it's time to hear what Australian singer-songwriter Sia's has offered up to the altar of Baz Luhrmann!
Kill and Run is a stunner, right off the bat. From its simple piano-led opening/ haunting vocal combo, to its eventual Earth shaking crescendo, this is a song that once again demonstrates Sia's uncanny knack for creating music that is as beautiful as it is emotionally raw.
Being part of a soundtrack crammed full of attention-grabbing A-listers, I do worry Kill and Run won't get the recognition or attention it deserves. However there's not much I can do about that, save placing my faith in the ears of humanity. So until we get the general public's reaction to the soundtrack I'll just console myself with thoughts of Sia picking up the Oscar for Best Song come whatever year this film will be eligible for the prestigious award. Surely, at the very least, it's deserving of a nomination! I mean, if Skyfall could win it....-_-!
Speaking of Skyfall, boy do I wish Kill and Run had been the theme for the next Bond film...sigh.
