Action Movie Music: “I Will Survive” From Gladiator (1992)

I saw this for the first time earlier this year, and I have got to say that it can be put up on the pedestal of “fighting” movies with the likes of “Rocky”, and “Warrior”. It has got hard hitting fight sequences and a lot of heart. Not to mention a cool ass soundtrack. Here is a sample of one of the head nodding tunes found on the soundtrack that makes you feel all manly inside.

“I Will Survive” by Cheaptrick gives the film more depth and substance and lyrically gives you the basis of what the movie is all about: Never giving up, and standing up for what is right.  Gladiator is a fun and entertaining  film, with  a great soundtrack to go with it. A perfect combination for any action film.
