The Oscar nominations are out! The Oscar nominations are out!
Oh, who am I kidding? I don’t really give a damn. And neither do you, probably. Except for the fact that as usual, the list includes five nominees for Best Original Song:
• No Time To Die by Billie Eilish and Finneas;
• Dos Oruguitas by Lin-Manuel Miranda;
• Somehow You Do by Diane Warren;
• Be Alive by Beyoncé and Dixson;
• Down to Joy by Van Morrison. (You can sample them all below.)
Who will win? Who doesn’t have a chance? And who got snubbed? Glad you asked. Because that’s precisely what Eric Alper and I are talking about in today’s instalment of Sonic Reducers. Push play to watch us handicap this year’s race, talk about some of the best film tunes of all time, and plant the seed for that long-awaited Questlove / Jack White / Bradley Cooper collaboration you know you want. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know.
