[34 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[28 DAYS TO OSCARS]
First of all, “Real in Rio” wasn’t even the best song in the film “Rio”. “Telling the World” by Taio Cruz and “Take You To Rio” (Remix) performed by Ester Dean, were far better songs in writing and performance than the opening and closing theme of “Real in Rio” which was rather hard to listen to.
Also, this category is a glorified joke this year, putting out only two songs in contention. With the “Rio” soundtrack lacking and “The Muppets” being praised this year, there is little to even think about. I personally loved “Man or Muppet” from “The Muppets” and though it was also not the strongest song in the film (I preferred “Pictures in my Head” or “Life’s A Happy Song”), I truly feel “The Muppets” have this one in the bag. Once again, I will lock my vote on this one early on:
“Man Or Muppet” for the win. Sorry “Rio”.
