Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #41 – “Mystery of Love,” from Call Me By Your Name

 

41. “Mystery of Love,” from Call Me By Your Name

Oh, this song is so beautiful. It’s hard not to be moved when you hear it. Sufjan Stevens wrote a really terrific song that somehow perfectly captures every piece of emotion you feel while watching this film. More so than “Visions of Gideon,” which plays over that incredible final shot of Timothée Chalamet, this song just somehow captures it all — Rome, romance, first love, longing… it’s just all there. You can’t talk about original film songs from this decade without this song. You just can’t.
