Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #156 – “Alive,” from Vox Lux
156. “Alive,” from Vox Lux
I’m telling you, this Vox Lux soundtrack has some bangers. This one’s sung by Raffey Cassidy, who plays young Natalie Portman in the first half of the film and Natalie’s daughter in the second half. Her voice in this is really impressive (you may have heard her sing a cappella in The Killing of a Sacred Deer). It’s also a very Sia song, which means it’s a very catchy pop tune, and the kind of song that you could have heard on the radio if she gave it to an artist for the radio. Which is exactly what this character would be singing.
