Oscars 2014: Who will win the Academy Award for best original song?

The Oscars do a good job of keeping the nominees for Best Song varied, and this year's group is no different. A stripped-down serenade, a rock anthem, a high-sugar pop song and an inspirational ballad are all vying for the amorphous title of "best." Considering the songs' stylistic differences, it could all come down to the voters' collective mood.
