Golden Globe Nominees: Best Original Song

My predictions: 3/5, missing the songs from “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Youth”
What’s missing? Too many to count and I don’t even know what they are

This is quite the list of films. There are two about music, “One Kind of Love” from Love and Mercy and “Simple Song #3” from Youth. The latter is an interesting selection that does have a crucial role in the film but isn't as traditional a song for this race. It's endearing to see the song dedicated to the late Paul Walker, “See You Again,” from Furious 7 honored, and the latest James Bond tune, “Writings on the Wall” from Spectre. And of course a song from Fifty Shades of Grey, apparently, “Love Me Like You Do.” As far as I can tell, every musician here is nominated for the very first time. I'll have to start listening to these on repeat before I have more thoughts.

What will win? I think it will be See You Again.
