Triad DJ & Events and The Academy Awards
At Triad DJ & Events we had almost as much fun watching The Academy Awards as Leonardo DiCaprio did! In honor of this glamorous night, we compiled a list of the Best Original Song Nominations. We want to hear from you guys, who was your favorite? Did you think that Sam Smith deserved the Academy Award for Writing on the Wall?
The Weeknd- Earned It: Possibly the most popular song on the list because of its radio success, you may also recognize Earned It from the 50 Shades of Gray soundtrack.
Ralph- Manta Ray: This beautiful composition was written for Racing Extinction, a documentary wake-up call on the diminishing of our endangered species.
David Lang- Simple Song #3: Written for comedic drama, Youth, this compelling song boasts an entire orchestra and talented opera singer, Sumi Jo.
Lady Gaga- Till It Happens to You: Written and performed by Lady Gaga with help from Diane Warren this song was made for The Hunting Ground. The intention of Till It Happens to You is to bring awareness to people about rape on college campuses. Lady Gaga brought the entire crowd to tears with this emotional performance Sunday night.
Writing On the Wall- Sam Smith: Last but not least, the winner of the Oscar! We cannot deny the sultry beauty that is Sam Smith’s voice and it really shines in this hit made for James Bond: Spectre. This song has everything we want from a James Bond soundtrack: dramatic lyrics and a powerful orchestral backdrop.
