The List: 75 Original Songs In Contention

Frozen-OriginalSong-headerFOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: SEVENTY-FIVE ORIGINAL SONGS

And we’re down to seventy-five Original Songs, meaning songs that have music and lyrics written specifically for the film they are contained in and apparently, an original song that starts the credits (but none after, which is too bad for the original songs following Coldplay in the credits of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”). The odds-on favorite to get a nomination (if not a win) is “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen” which is the epic ballad of the animated film. A few I hope to see include the hilarious ballad from “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” titled “Doby” to which Will Ferrell sings to the shark he has raised, anything from “The Great Gatsby” would be great to see nominated, the aforementioned “Atlas” by Coldplay from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, and another favorite I am sure, “My Lord Sunshine” from “12 Years A Slave”.
