Music has never been in a more important place in my life than these past months. So I tried to do this theme justice this week and I went with songs that I think EVERYONE knows and has heard at least once. If not.. you must have been living under a rock for sure. But let’s dive right into my three picks that all won the Best Original Song Oscar. They are also from the last decade AND they are all sung by women (sorta).
Back in the day, when Pierce Brosnan was the legendary spy James Bond, I actually watched it with great interest. Or maybe I just happened to be easily pleased because as I put all the movies I remember seeing into my Letterboxd account, I realized, I have seen some crappy movies as a kid. My god, most of them were just mindless teen flicks – now I can’t even stomach thinking about them let alone watch them. So taking into account the horrendous past of my movie history, Skyfall happened to make a good impression without actually having the Daniel Craig James Bond knowledge from his past movies Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
