Listen to Carrie Underwood’s ‘There’s a Place for Us’ from ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’

Posted by · 5:28 pm · December 7th, 2010

We’re trickling closer to Thursday’s Tech Support column on the original song race with what’s available to us.  Today it’s a tune I didn’t even know was in the race until a PR blast hit the ole inbox this afternoon.

It looks like country star Carrie Underwood is the race with “There’s a Place for Us” from “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” putting her in the “Oscar contender” club with fellow American Idol alums Jennifer Hudson (“Love You I Do” from “Dreamgirls”) and Adam Lambert (“Time for Miracles” from “2012”).

I haven’t seen the film yet.  In fact, I never did get around to the second installment of the franchise after being a pretty big fan of the first one.  But I’m told the song is used over the closing credits rather than in the context of the film itself.

Have a listen to “There’s a Place for Us” below, and as always, keep track of the Best Original Song race as it unfolds via its dedicated page here.

    Not a fan. I think “I See the Light” and “Shine” should be the favorites in this category.

    For the second one Regina Spektor’s song played over the end of the movie into credits so they might be using this one similarly. Which should give it an edge over other credit songs.

    But… the Regina Spektor song wasn’t nominated…

    not crazy about the song-a bit to cliche and corny.

    i liked the Spektor song at the end of the second, but its placement in context of the film was so awkward and obviously begging for a nomination, i believe that’s why it was not nominated.

    i think “If I Rise,” “I See the Light” and “Shine” are sure-things in this category.

    Bland in the extreme. Sounds just a million other lazy closing credits songs.

    Bound to be nominated.

    Don’t bother with this or “Prince Caspian,” Kris. Neither of them are good, and I was a fan of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” too.
