The Oscar best original song nominees that time forgot
“In the Deep,” “Crash,” 2005
Who remembers “Crash” had a theme song? For a brief period during the 2005 Oscars, it seemed like the performance by singer-songwriter Kathleen “Bird” York, which featured slo-mo dancing and burning cars in the background, would be the most discussed thing about “Crash” -- up until that film won best picture. Now, the song’s something of a historical oddity -- a low-key little song with little explicit connection to the plot of “Crash” at all.
