There are those certain movies that you come across that are already pretty good but then you hear that original song made specifically for the film and it knocks you off your feet. There aren’t a lot of movie songs that I’m particularly fond of but there are three songs that I love so much I have them on my Spotify. So, on that note, here are my three favorite movie songs of all time (so far.)
3. “I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran
Oh my goodness, let me talk a little about this song. I’m not into pop music or pop stars, so I had no idea about Ed Sheeran. This was my introduction and I was blown away.
To this day, The Desolation of Smaug is still one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in the movie theaters. That film, in the incredible format of IMAX, was. In. CREDIBLE! I went to see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and while it wasn’t the worst movie I’ve ever seen I wasn’t overly thrilled. When I went to see The Desolation of Smaug I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was but boy was it amazing.
To walk out of that theater with “I See Fire” blaring in my ears was the icing on the cake. It’s definitely one of the best movie songs I’ve ever heard and now I can understand why so many people are Ed Sheeran fans. He can sing!

It’s not going to be long before we get to see who takes home the awards this Sunday night and I’m having such a fun time predicting the winners of the various categories. Today I’m looking at the potential victors for the categories featuring Best Original Screenplay and Best Original Song. Enjoy!
Best Original Screenplay:
The Favourite is a fascinating original tale of the turbulent backstories of the British royals. While I haven’t seen the film it definitely stands out as an instant film of intrigue. Here’s the synopsis.
In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
It definitely sounds rather interesting.

Black Panther was the first film in the MCU to have a movie soundtrack made for the movie by a current artist and that artist was Kendrick Lamar. His movie soundtrack is easily one of the best I’ve heard for a film but the song that goes along with the end-credits (“All the Stars”) has a music video and I’ve just recently seen it. Oh my goodness! It was utterly incredible to behold. If you’re interested, here it is.
Black Panther was already a remarkable depiction of strong, beautiful black people but this music video hones that narrative and takes it to the next level of mindblowing awesomeness.
The artistic factor to the video is riveting and easily one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen (especially in a music video.) And I love that this video paid homage to Black Panther by showing women as matriarchs.
I already loved the song at the end of Black Panther but now I love it even more after seeing this video.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. Wakanda forever!
