The song, over the years, has gained an iconic status, with its oft-quoted lyric, “Fame, I’m gonna live forever, baby remember my name”. The track was performed by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the movie. The song was a part of the soundtrack of Crazy Heart and was performed by Jeff Bridges and Colin Farrell in the movie. The song was composed by Henry Mancini and the lyrics were penned by Johnny Mercer. The music was composed by Justin Hurwitz and the lyrics were penned by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The kind of song you would ideally want to listen to on a particularly cold night. Fame is essentially a pop song that became a hit once it was released as the theme song to the TV series and film Fame. And of course, the melody is as pretty as they come. 2018-02-28T07:19:09+00:00″>

A country song, finally. It won the Oscar in 2008. The awards are given to those tracks that have a great mix of melody, rhythm and lyrics. The track is gentle, lovely and warm. We Belong Together

The song featured in the 2010 movie Toy Story 3. And what a song, what voice, and such a haunting melody to go with it too. The music and lyrics of the track were written and composed by the actors of Once, Glen Hansard, and Marketa Irglova. The track resonates with a lot of people as it speaks about ambitions, desires, and love. When Holly Golightly (played by Hepburn) strums her guitar and begins to sing in her haunting and lovely voice, “Moon River”, you know hearts will beat, sigh and hum their own tiny tunes. Always such a delight. Basically “Falling Slowly” best describes the film. It also won four Grammy Awards, Song of the Year, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo, and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television. Stevie Wonder’s classic song is a favourite of many. It was written for the film by Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett and took home the Oscar in 2010.

© IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd The Academy Award for Best Original Song was a category that was introduced in 1934. Lethal combination. Breezy, sunny and a bundle of joy, the track was instantly hummable, which is the case with most Randy Newman songs. Not once does The Boss, Bruce Springsteen’s smooth voice feels like it’s straining to deliver something so emotionally laden. It didn’t top 19 charts for no good reason. The lyrics talk about characters’ love for each other, their mutual indecision and their dreams. And the slow beats, building up the intensity of the lyrics; solid old-school romance right there. I Just Called to Say I Love You

The love ballad for ages. Oh, and it also won the 1962 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Falling Slowly

“Falling Slowly” is a song from the musical drama Once. City of Stars

The La La Land song won the Oscar last year, and it’s not difficult to see why. Newman won the Oscar for the song in 2011, and the artist made one of the funniest speeches in Oscar history as he said that he didn’t want to thank people as it made for bad television. The lyrics feature all the good things that country tracks are known for– Trucks, highways and the guitar. “Moon River” was awarded an Oscar for Best Original Song (1961). So many, that people now consider it to be just another sappy love song on everyone’s playlist. It won the Academy Award in 1971. Take My Breath Away

Yes, it can be cheesy, but who said cheesy can’t be good? Setting the tone and pace of the plot, informing in its own subtle way about the characters. Fame was performed by Irene Cara and won an Oscar in 1981. The music was composed by Michael Gore, and the lyrics were written by Dean Pitchford. “I Just Called to Say I Love You” won an Oscar in 1985. For All We Know

The soft rock song “For All We Know” was written for the 1970 film Lovers and Other Strangers. With music by Fred Karlin and lyrics by Robb Wilson and Arthur James, the song was originally performed by Larry Meredith. But Wonder’s song is simple and it says what it wants to say, to tell the special someone that the singer loves her. In the music video, both Springsteen and Hanks feature. Naturally, to narrow down to just ten songs for the purpose of this particular listicle was not an easy task, and which obviously means that there are songs that I very much wanted to include, but had to overlook to keep it short. The song was written by Italian DJ Giorgio Moroder and Tom Whitlock for the Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun. It was written, composed and performed by Randy Newman. The song was a part of the soundtrack of the movie The Woman in Red. The track was performed by the band Berlin. It won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1987
Streets of Philadelphia

I was bruised and battered, I couldn’t tell what I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
I saw my reflection in a window, I didn’t know my own face
Oh brother are you gonna leave me wastin’ away
On the Streets of Philadelphia
The song starts powerfully and finishes just as wonderfully. Written and performed by Springsteen for Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington’s award-winning feature Philadelphia, it was released as a single in 1994. Fame

It is very unlikely that one could be a movie buff, and not have heard “Fame” somewhere, sometime. So, here are my top ten Oscar-winning tracks of all time (in no particular order):
Moon River

If you are an Audrey Hepburn fan or if you’ve watched the charming little romantic comedy called Breakfast at Tiffany’s, then you will remember this song.
