Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #155 – “Love Me Like You Do,” from Fifty Shades of Grey
155. “Love Me Like You Do,” from Fifty Shades of Grey
What is it with Fifty Shades of Grey having actually passable music? It’s really only the first one. I think they realized the bubble had burst after that and threw the rest of them together. But here, they actually went all out on the music. This is just a very nice song. It’s a nice romantic ballad that is way too good for the film for which it was written. I’m not gonna pretend like it can hold a candle to any of the love ballads from 80s movies, but hey, in terms of the state of pop music nowadays, this is actually a very passable excuse for a love theme.
