The Great Gatsby tattoo art! 

This song by The Whispers could be Gatsby’s theme song. Here, have a listen:  “And the Beat Goes On”

Check out these lyrics and compare them to the quotation in the tattoo, and the quotation at the end of the novel:
“And the beat goes on
Just like my love everlasting
And the beat goes on
Still moving strong on and on
Do you ever wonder
That to win, somebody’s got to lose
I might as well get over the blues
Just like fishing in the ocean
There’ll always be someone new
You did me wrong ’cause I’ve been through stormy weather
And the beat goes on
Just like my love everlasting
And the beat goes on you’d better believe it
Still moving strong on and on
Don’t stop for nobody
This time I’ll keep my feet on solid ground
Now I understand myself when I’m down
Like the sweet sound of hip music
There’ll always be something new
To keep the tables turning
Hey, this super song
There’ll never be an ending
And the beat goes on
Just like my love everlasting
And the beat goes on
Still moving strong on and on
The beat goes on
The beat goes on
Get down playing that fee, sure the beat is real
The beat goes on . . . ” (and repeats past lyrics for a full 4:29 minutes . . .)
