Music Musings: Golden Globes Ready with Adele, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Beyoncé
By Angel Lenise Robinson January 07,2013
When it comes to music, the right sound is just as important at setting the mood as it is setting up a scene in the film du jour. With the Golden Globes just six days away, it’s an apt occasion to lend an open ear to tunes that have earned the honor to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, whether they topped the Billboard charts or not. So what do you get when Adele belts out the title song of a James Bond blockbuster 50 years after the franchise’s inception? How can you explain Gwyneth Paltrow‘s surprising vocal reveal in Country Strong? What happens when Beyoncé, Leona Lewis, and Kate Hudson‘s put their voices center stage in Cadillac Records, Avatar, and Nine? You get not only a round of great songs that anchored some of your favorite films, but music that can soundtrack your Golden Globes viewing party the right way. We’ve looked at the HFPA’s category of Best Original Songs from the past five decade, and came up with a few that you may want to add to your personal music archive today.
