This is when we find out exactly why Gatsby is so in love with Daisy. She represents money, plain and simple. ‘Jingle’ and ‘cymbals’ suggest almost that her voice is a taunting advertisement for the wealthy lifestyle that Gatsby so desires. She never knew what it meant to want something because she would always get it, and this is unconsciously conveyed by the lilt of her voice. Nick is half-consciously figuring out what’s so elusive and magnetic about the quality of Daisy’s voice, but Gatsby grasps it intuitively. – https://genius.com/1741470
