SONG: Karen O & Ezra Koenig

“The Moon Song”

With the help of director Spike Jonze, Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) wrote and recorded this song for the movie “Her” – a beautifully shot film set in the future starring Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore Twombly. Phoenix nails heartache, loneliness and vulnerability in this thought-provoking love story. The film is up for “Best Picture” at the Academy Awards and the track is up for “Best Original Song”.

This particular version of “The Moon Song” is recorded as a duet with Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), and I think it’s stunning. If it’s a little too sugary for you, don’t worry, it’ll likely be my only schmaltzy pick for this week’s “love songs” theme…
