    As the Oscars draw nearer, everyone’s talking about the best movies of the year. But what about the best movie songs of the year?

    If we learnt anything from Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” it’s that one song can really make a film.

    In honour of the upcoming Oscars, Spotify has released a playlist of their Top 10 most-streamed movie tracks from the past 12 months. (No, Titanic is not on there – but another Leonardo DiCaprio film is…)

    1. Ed Sheeran, I See Fire — The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
    2. Pharrell Williams, Happy — Despicable Me 2

    3. 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, We Own It — Fast & Furious 6
    4. M83, Midnight City — Warm Bodies
    5. Lana Del Rey, Young and Beautiful — The Great Gatsby

    6. Jay Z & Kanye West, No Church in the Wild — The Great Gatsby
    7. Kanye West, Stronger —The Hangover Pt. III
    8. Frank Ocean, Super Rich Kids — The Bling Ring
    9. Idina Menzel, Let It Go — Frozen
    10. Kristen Bell & Idina Menzel, For the First Time in Forever — Frozen

    Only two of the songs on the list – “Happy” and “Let It Go” — are actually nominated for Best Original Song.

    But if Spotify users ruled the Academy, it looks like Ed Sheeran would be taking home a statue.
