My Favorite Oscar-Winning Songs: A Playlist


Did you know "The Way You Look Tonight" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song when it was featured in the 1936 movie Swing Time? I did not know this until I recently looked up all the Oscar-winning songs from the past and learned that there's a truly awesome playlist to be made from all those winners.

How else would I have thought to put together "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" (included in the 1969 film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), "Moon River" as performed by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, "Flashdance" from Flashdance, "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile and "Falling Slowly" from Once? Seriously, this list of winners is a gold mine (ha! Get it? "Gold" mine? 'Cause. . . of the Oscar statue. . . sigh).

Anyway, to see all the winning songs I picked for my award-worthy playlist,

Streets of Philadelphia never ceases to bring tears to my eyes. Such a beautiful song and the way The Boss sings it so simply and so heartfelt is what makes it special.
