Countdown to Oscars - List of eligible songs for Best Song

I always think the song category for the Oscars is strange, sometimes a popular song wins it or sometimes it's a political song (think An Inconvenient Truth) or something completely off the Academy's radar.

-'Alice' from Alice in Wonderland
-'Forever One Love' from Black Tulip
-'Freedom Song' from Black Tulip
-'Bound to You' from Burlesque
-'Welcome to Burlesque' from Burlesque
-'You Haven't Seen the Last of Me' from Burlesque
-'There's a Place for Us' from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
-'Coming Home' from Country Song
-'Me and Tennessee' from Country Song
-'Despicable Me' from Despicable Me
-'Prettiest Girls' from Despicable Me
-'Dear Laughing Doubters' from Dinner for Schmucks
-'Better Days' from Eat Pray Love
-'If You Run' from Going the Distance
-'Darkness before the Dawn' from Holy Rollers
-'Sticks & Stones' from How to Train Your Dragon
-'Le Gris' from Idiots and Angels
-'Chanson Illusionist' from The Illusionist
-'Never Say Never' from The Karate Kid
-'To the Sky' from Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
-'What If' from Letters to Juliet
-'Life during Wartime' from Life during Wartime
-'Made in Dagenham' from Made in Dagenham
-'Little One' from Mother and Child
-'Be the One' from The Next Three Days
-'If I Rise' from 127 Hours
-'When You See Forever' from The Perfect Game
-'I Remain' from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
-'Dream Big' from Pure Country 2: The Gift
-'How I Love You' from Ramona and Beezus
-'Darling I Do' from Shrek Forever After
-'Noka Oi' from Six Days in Paradise
-'This is a Low' from Tamara Drewe
-'I See the Light' from Tangled
-'Rise' from 3 Billion and Counting
-'We Belong Together from Toy Story 3
-'Eclipse: All Yours' from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
-'Nothing' from Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too
-'A Better Life' from Unbeaten
-'Shine' from Waiting for Superman
-'The Reasons Why' from Wretches & Jabberers

My Pick: Like I said before, you can never really tell with Oscars but if I had to pick I'd go with Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Shine from Waiting from Superman and I See the Light from Tangled as the sure things but I'd say the songs from Burlesque and Country Strong have a great chance to make it onto the list.  Of course, previous Oscars winners A. R. Rahman and Randy Newman have a second opportunity for their movies 127 Hours and Toy Story 3 respectively too.  I can't believe Burlesque could be a potential Oscar nominee.  Are you already thinking ahead to the telecast?
