Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #125 – “Stay Alive,” from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

 

125. “Stay Alive,” from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

This movie blew me away when I saw it back in 2013. It’s such an underrated gem of a film. And this song is spectacular. It’s not totally relevant to the song, but it doesn’t matter. It’s a brilliant song that captures the hope and the inner journey that takes place within the film. It’s one of those songs that, as a song, I’d rank way higher on this list, but in terms of it’s use within the film, I can’t really justify putting it much higher than this outside of, “I just really like the song.”
