Golden Globes Best Original Song nominees -- LISTEN

Excited for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the Golden Globes this Sunday night? Join the club. But beyond the fun hosts, there is a ton of entertainment to look forward to during Sunday’s live event: Movies (Lincoln or Les Misérables?!), TV (Will Homeland repeat their Emmy wins?) and even music, with Best Original Song bringing star power in the form of Adele, Taylor Swift and Hugh Jackman. Listen to all five nominees below, and pick your favorite going into the broadcast.

Interestingly, of the Golden Globe nominees, only Skyfall and Les Misérables’ songs were nominated for the Best Original Song Oscar yesterday, which may point to their odds at the Globes — although there have been plenty of Oscar/Globes differences before. Will Swift emerge victorious? Will the Les Mis crew get another award? Spoiler alert: This is yours to lose, Adele.

Listen to all the nominees below:

1.) “For You,” from the movie Act of Valor. Music and lyrics by Monty Powell, Keith Urban. READ FULL STORY

From 'Pitch Perfect' to 'Sparkle': The best (and worst) soundtracks of 2012

It was a great year for music on the silver screen in some ways — mainstream flicks featuring hot new artists; and weaker in others — favorite singers being massacred in cover-land. Here are our picks for the best soundtracks of 2012, complete with a Spotify playlist to rock you through it — and a few of the worst (we spared you the playlist for that one).

Best of 2012

Pitch Perfect – Fresh and inspired, with mash-ups that Glee would kill for, this ode to collegiate a cappella gave us – and anyone who enjoys harmonies – something to sing about.

Katy Perry: Part of Me – The pop album that just wouldn’t quit got a nice compliment with the 3-D concert film. The Part of Me soundtrack gave a new listening experience to everything from “Firework” to newer stuff like “Wide Awake.” Not to mention, it’s just plain fun.

Skyfall – Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard Adele’s slow-burner of a Bond theme. But the soundtrack is more than just that hit single – thank goodness.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – The Twilight soundtracks are always an eclectic mix of musicians and genres, and the fifth and final is no exception. Standouts include Green Day’s “The Forgotten” and “Bittersweet,” by Ellie Goulding.
