Oscar Week Off 8: cover songs nominees from 2001 to 2009

(The Oscar Week Off is a daily feature of playlists including covers of all the original songs nominees at the Academy Awards availables on Spotify)

A very short playlist, this time, because few of the original songs nominees have already been covered and re-recorded. Anyway, the Weird Al Yankovic parody of Eminem's Lose Yourself deserves to be listened to. At least, one time.
