The winners for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture awarded annually at the Oscars since 1934 show that, fairly consistently, movie experts have poor taste in music. They prefer syrupy, showtuney songs like “My Heart Will Go On” from the Titanic or “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. But sometimes they get it right. From Dylan to Eminem to Audrey Hepburn, these songs won the gold statue and remain worthy of listen to again, even when the movie’s not on.
