Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth have won the Grammy for Best Song Written For Visual Media for Skyfall.
Each of these singers and songwriters has worked vigorously to put together the perfect track to a film. Unlike your average song that may appear on an artist’s album, a song on a soundtrack truly has to tell a story. The perfect song can help the filmmaker convey their story to the audience; however, the wrong one can completely kill a moment.
Every one of these artists deserves to be nominated in this category. Unfortunately, only one of them could take home the award.
