    I have little hope to be able to respect the musical choices of the Academy, but I know that they will not earn it if this cheesy little pop song gets nominated.

  4. Bliss says:

    "If i rise" will be the winning song

  5. Alambil and Tarvis says:

    Top favorites:

    "There's A Place for Us"
    "I See The Light"
    "Sticks & Stones"
    "Better Days"

    Carrie's Song is the best, hands-down, even if it doesn't get to the finals or win.

    they should put the videos for all of them together on a youtube channel so we can compare them. i don't thinnk I've heard the competition.

  7. I've been waiting for this news post. Well, this isn't the first time Narnia has gotten an Oscar look, but I don't think we'll win this time either…I hope so, but I don't think it's likely.

    Cool! I thought that "There's a Place for Us" was awesome when I went to the theater! I stayed until it was over. Hey Pepper Darcy, did you see that "Sticks and Stones" from How to Train Your Dragon is also in the competition?

    Please do explain why you think that "There's a Place for Us" is cheesy. Also, I think that you are being a little harsh. I think it is a wonderful song and will be glad if it wins. 🙂

    There is nothing strictly *wrong* with this song. But it is embarrassingly generic. There is nothing new or even interesting lyrically, instrumentally, or melodically about this song.

  11. Not Of This World says:

    I thought the song was beautifull and I wouldn't consider "There's A Place For Us" pop. I think it's more country (Oh! and of course Narnian 😉 ).

  12. Not Of This World says:

    I haven't heard the compitition either.

  13. Not Of This World says:

    I stayed to listen to the whole song too. I had to use the restroom have way through the movie, but I still stayed to listen to the somg and used it after :-).

  14. It would be great publicity for the film if the song gets an Oscar nomination. I really hope it does.

  15. faunforaslan says:

    I agree with NOTW. (Nice name, by the way 😀 ) "There's a Palce for Us" never crossed my mind as a pop song; neither did "The Call" in PC.

  16. Queen Emmaline Phoenix says:

    I AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY WITH KATE! alright so the call was an amazing and strange song…i simply adored it! but this song just sounds like another stupid carrie song… it sounds like it could be off her new album not the NARNIA soundtrack! also i dont prefer her singing because at some points it sounds like she's trying to hard and "screaming"

  17. Shark Fin says:

  18. this would be de bst if narnia wins this award.
    i hope it does

    There's A Place For Us is a brilliant song. Fantastic arrangement, fantastic vocals, fantastic music. Carrie is brilliant.

    my favorite song! we can be the Kings and Queens of anything if we belive, its written in the stars that shine above, a world were you and i belong, were faith and love will keep us strong, exactly who we are is just enough, There's a place for us. 🙂 <3
