Song of the Day #2041

Song of the Day: The Fabelmans (“Mitzi’s Dance”) [YouTube link] was composed by John Williams for the 2022 autobiographical Steven Spielberg-directed film. I have no clue if this soundtrack will win in the Best Original Score category at the 95th Annual Academy Awards tonight, but it’s still worth noting that this is the Maestro’s 53rd Oscar nomination, second only to Walt Disney. He’s won 5 statuettes over his illustrious career, and he is the oldest nominee in Oscar history. This gentle, romantic, and heartbreaking cue reminds us how gifted he remains.
