Song of the Day: "From Here to the Moon and Back"

2-time Oscar nominee Dolly Parton ("9 to 5" from 9 to 5 lost to "Fame" from Fame, throw in "The Other Song from Fame" from Fame [actual name "Out Here On My Own"] and "On the Road Again" from Honeysuckle Rose and you've got 4 solid nominees plus a song from another movie that you're not going to guess... let's just say it was Randy Newman and get on with it; later she would lose to "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" but since you don't remember what song she was nominated for, let's just assume the best song won) has 3 songs on the short list of possible Best Original Song nominees. All from Joyful Noise; the movie was roundly panned by critics but the soundtrack itself has better reviews.

I haven't looked at the songs from the short list to see if there are others that Warner Bros. will put its weight behind instead of these. If they have some from a movie currently in theaters, they'll likely focus their resources there. If not, this could pop in. There's always a weird fifth nomination (when there are 5 nominees), so Dolly could do that.

Supposedly this song tugs at your heartstrings. Apparently I don't have heartstrings.
