The race for Best Song at the Academy Awards is on. U2 has joined it with “Your Song Saved My Life” from “Sing 2.” Already in the hunt are Diane Warren and Reba McEntire, Beyonce, Van Morrison, and host of pop stars whose songs are featured in films this year.
Bono, the lead singer of U2, has a featured role in “Sing 2,” and so does the group’s classic hit, “I Still Don’t Know What I’m Looking For.”
Is there a new U2 album in the offing? I hope so, I miss them! But in the meantime, we’ve got this song. U2 has one Oscar already for Best Song, “The Hands that Built America,” from Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York,” 2003.
