So I finally got to see The Great Gatsby recently, together with two friends, one of whom is like me also a big fan of the book, and (to our surprise) we all thoroughly enjoyed it in all its anachronistic glory. And it's kind of made me mellow towards the Back to Black cover. Don't get me wrong, I haven't changed my mind about its (lack of) artistic merit, but in the context of the film, it worked, and dare I say it, probably better than the original would have. And it made both my friends think of Amy and remember how great the original song is.
