ModMusic: A Real Oscar Winner
Perusing the uninspiring list of Best Song nominees for this year's Academy Awards -- 3 Dreamgirls consolation prizes, a decent Melissa Etheridge tune and perpetual waste of oxygen Randy Newman -- I decided to look at past years and try to figure out what Iwas the last truly great Oscar-winning song. I was a little shocked, however, to discover the crap that has often dominated this category. Ultimately, I had to reach all the way back to 1993 for this superlative elegy. Enjoy.
