For the third year in a row, I have for some reason written and recorded a song in the style of Randy Newman and pretended it is the theme song from a current movie. First it was “We Need to Talk About Kevin,” then “Skyfall,” and now “12 Years a Slave.”
The song doesn’t have any real spoilers for “12 Years a Slave” (you already know he’s going to get free eventually), but you’ll appreciate it more if you’ve seen it. Listen with the player below, or over at Soundcloud. If you’d like to download an MP3 of the song for $1, you can do so here.
