"Walk Hard" -- Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Music and Lyrics by Judd Apatow, John C. Reilly, Marshall Crenshaw, & Jake Kasdan

Predicted Winner: "Walk Hard" from Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

Ultimately, this race always comes down to star power and hummability. I couldn't hum you the melody of the first three songs if my life depended on it (there was a song in Grace is Gone?), and the tune from Enchanted is catchy enough but sounds like something Menken left off the Little Mermaid soundtrack. That leaves "Walk Hard," the most memorable number from a very funny film, written by a dream team of cool dudes. They've got to give Apatow something this year, right?

Now it's your turn to vote ...
