Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #73 – “Freedom,” from Django Unchained
73. “Freedom,” from Django Unchained
Django’s back. The songs are all over the map from the movie, but there are a few that stand out as particularly good. This is the first of two. This one’s very good, and has the great female vocals in the first part, before Anthony Hamilton takes over. He’s someone I first knew about when I heard him perform “Do You Feel Me” on the American Gangster soundtrack (and actually in the movie). The song just totally stood out to me, as did his voice, and remains one of my favorite songs of that decade. So hearing him pop up on the Django soundtrack was pretty wonderful. This song is really good.
