The Oscars Hall Of Fame (Academy Awards Best Original Songs from 1934 to 2010)

Yesterday night, Randy Newman's We Belong Together (from Toy Story 3) won the Academy Award for the Best Original Song. But who won the same award in 1976? And in 1960? And in 1939? Answers are in this playlist: it features all the winning songs at the Oscars. Most of the time, they're the original versions from the movies. Just in seven cases (out of 77) I had to replace them with some surrogates. Enjoy!

(and if you want more, starting from here you will find all the huge Oscars playlists I made one year ago...)
