The 2013 Academy Awards has revealed the shortlist for its Best Original Song category, and some familiar faces are among the 75 possible nominees, specifically:

Arcade Fire’s “Abraham’s Daughter” from The Hunter Games (the song is also nominated for a Grammy); Fiona Apple’s “Dull Tool” from This Is 40; The Black Keys’ “The Baddest Man Alive” from The Man With the Iron Fists; Karen O’s “Strange Love” from Frankenweenie; Mumford and Sons’ “Learn Me Right” from Brave; Rick Ross’ “100 Black Coffins” from Django Unchained; and Liz Phair’s “Dotted Line” from People Like Us. And, of course, Adele’s theme for the James Bond film Skyfall made the cut.

The final nominees will be revealed on January 20th, before Seth MacFarlane hosts the 85th Annual Academy Awards on February 24th.
