Mike’s Favorite Male Supporting Performances of the Decade (10-1)

I make ‘favorite performance’ lists every year, and I get that these lists, more than the rest, are the most subjective one can make. Because it’s really about what you see in each performance and what you respond to; There’s no objective way to truly rate a performance as better than another. With whole films, it feels easier to make that distinction. So with these lists, I’m just gonna focus on some performances from the decade that I really, really enjoyed, and the goal here is just to shout them out and maybe get some people to watch the films if they hadn’t or reevaluate each of the performances the next time they watch the films.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #149 – “Moonshine,” from Live by Night

 

149. “Moonshine,” from Live by Night

I started compiling this list sometime over the summer. And I’ve gotta tell you… this song’s been on and off stuck in my head ever since. This is catchy as shit. Most people don’t even remember this movie, let alone this song. But it’s really good. On a pure song level, I’d put this higher. In terms of its use within the film… more of a cool end credits song than anything else. Which is what kept me from putting it higher. But man, what a cool song this is.
