Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #18 – “This Is Me,” from The Greatest Showman

 

18. “This Is Me,” from The Greatest Showman

I always appreciate a good ‘anthem’ song in a movie. And that’s what this is. This is the song for all the outcasts and those who don’t fit in saying, “I’m not apologizing for who I am, take it or leave it.” And it’s just a wonderful song and a wonderful moment in the film. This is one of those songs where, what it stands for is the driving factor for my ranking. But not really, because it’s also a wonderful song that makes this spot on its own merit anyway. But the fact that it is that anthem that transcends the moment in the film and works as something that represents that feeling in any walk of life is what solidifies its ranking to me.
