Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #162 – “Ryan’s Song,” from Boyhood
162. “Ryan’s Song,” from Boyhood
Another song that’s hugely underrated from this decade. People forget that Ethan Hawke writes/sings two songs in this movie, and they’re both wonderful. They’re similar, but they’re definitely separate entities. This is the second song he sings in the movie, after he’s settled down and gotten remarried. And it’s a lovely song, bolstered by the fact that Hawke wrote it and sung it himself.
