Skyfall Soundtrack Argo Soundtrack  Life of Pi Soundtrack  Lincoln Soundtrack Catching up on my email yesterday I came across a missive that I should have read a while ago as it is pre-tay, pre-tay cool and it would appear that some of the links have now expired. To honour the 85th Annual Academy Awards taking place this evening the kind folks at Rdio are celebrating the talent behind the scenes who bring emotion and culture to the films we love through the power of music, they have specially curated a playlist featuring all the songs from both the BAFTAs and the Oscars for your listening pleasure.
