The absolutely ridiculous Best Song Oscar race ended with Lady Gaga losing to Sam Smith last night. She had “Til it Happens to You,” a powerful, moving message song written with Diane Warren. Smith had “Writing’s on the Wall,” weak of a James Bond theme.
But Gaga and Warren get the last laugh. “Happens” zoomed up to number 8 this morning on iTunes and 7 on amazon.com. “Wall” is 14 on iTunes and 9 on amazon. The people have spoken!
