And The Nominees Are…

So 2010 had a bad year in film music, eh? I beg to differ. Make sure to read the post right before this one for explanation of the rules/all that jazz. Here are full video and/or sound clips for all 6 of the nominees I’ve chosen. Make sure to listen to them all if you haven’t (or even if you have), and most importantly, make sure to vote for your favorite! Be mindful that you’ll only be able to vote once, and that the results will be hidden from view until I reveal the two lowest-scoring nominees. Now, let the games begin!

The nominees are…

If I Rise (from “127 Hours”) — Dido & A.R. Rahman (Music by A.R. Rahman, Lyrics by Dido & Rollo Armstrong)

I See The Light (from “Tangled”) — Mandy Moore & Zachary Levi (Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Glenn Slater)

Bound To You (from “Burlesque”) — Christina Aguilera (Music & Lyrics by Christina Aguilera, Sam Dixon, & Sia Furler)

Darling I Do (from “Shrek Forever After”) — Landon Pigg & Lucy Schwartz (Music & Lyrics by Landon Pigg & Lucy Schwartz)

Sticks & Stones (from “How To Train Your Dragon”) — Jónsi (Music & Lyrics by Jónsi)

Dear Laughing Doubters (from “Dinner For Schmucks”) — Sondre Lerche (Music & Lyrics by Sondre Lerche & Theodore Shapiro)

  • Alice (from “Alice In Wonderland”) — Avril Lavigne
