Slumdog Millionaire “Best Song”
Jai Ho

‘Down to Earth’ from Wall-E, ‘Jai Ho’ from Slumdog Millionaire, and ‘O Saya’ from Slumdog Millionaire are the three songs nominated for an Oscar this 2009 season. Slumdog Millionaire is clearly a favorite this year, with ten nominations – they have two thirds of a shot at winning an Academy Award for ‘best song,’ there is not doubt they will take something home.

Here is a brief tidbit on the three songs nominated for a 2009 Oscar – what’s you choice?

‘Down to Earth’ from WALL-E was my favorite movie of 2008, and the music was spectacular as well. Songs made for Disney movies are always spectacular, and IMO, some of the best songs to come out. The song is an upbeat popish song from a cute, film about robots in love. It’s definitely a heart warmer.

Slumdog Millionaire is really all over the place, I have yet to hear one person say anything bad about this movie. I have yet to see it, it is definitely on my list of “must see�? movies though. “Jai Ho,�? is a Bollywood song with a rapid beat, and is actually really catchy. It makes you feel like something exciting is about to happen.

The second song from Slumdog Millionaire is “O Saya.�? It sounds like a Bollywood techno beat, and is really kind of relaxing, especially when the drums come in.

Despite Slumdog’s success, many think other movies didn’t get a chance to win an Oscar. Is it really fair for a movie to be nominated twice within the same category, and only three total nominations? Was there really a lack of options?
