There are party fiends, and then there's Jay Gatsby. In "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" – a new song from The Great Gatsby soundtrack – the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie, Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest and producer GoonRock demonstrate their willingness to keep up. Swinging sax licks boogie with Fergie's jazzed up vocals before GoonRock's synths storm through. Q-Tip later drops in a fun-loving guest verse to keep the energy levels pulsing. "I have a stout reputation of keeping it hot," he rhymes.

'Great Gatsby' Soundtrack Features Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Beyonce, Lana Del Rey

The Great Gatsby soundtrack also features a cover of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" by Beyoncé and Outkast's Andre 3000, and includes music from Jay-Z, Jack White, Lana Del Rey, the xx and Florence and the Machine. It's due on May 7th. The Great Gatsby opens May 10th.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
