Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #15 – “Start a Fire,” from La La Land


15. “Start a Fire,” from La La Land

This song is just so fucking good. What’s great about it is, it’s supposed to be the moment in the film where Ryan Gosling has sold out, given up his jazz ambitions for a ‘pop’ group. Problem is, this song is amazing. They stop the film just to give you this number, and it totally works. I know we’re supposed to want him to not make this kind of music, but shit, this song is so good… I’d be fine if he kept going.
