EXCLUSIVE I did find a snippet of Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens to You” from “The Hunting Ground,” a riveting documentary that debuts this fall on CNN. (I’m told this is the part heard in the movie.) The song is great, and should be nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe. If it’s released as a single before September 30th, Lady G. could easily get a Grammy nod as well.
“Til it Happens” was produced and arranged by Gaga, written by Diane Warren, who’s been nominated for 7 Oscars. This could be the “Glory” of 2015-16, a hugely catchy song with a relevant political and sociological topic– date rape– or campus rape.
UPDATE The song is all over YouTube and the internet. Universal scratched an audio clip, but let’s hope they get the track up and running officially soon. They’ve let a fan made video get over 15,000 videos.
