Morning Song – I Will Survive

October 14, 2015

It’s entirely appropriate that Gloria Gaynor’s operatic feminist/gay anthem, “I Will Survive”, runs over the closing credits to The Martian.  It perfectly sums up the plot of the movie (and book): 1) protagonist is left behind in life-threatening circumstances, 2) protagonist decides to survive by any means necessary.

Mark Watney may hate this “God-awful music“, but it kept him company—and kept him going—through months of despair and isolation…just like it has for millions of Earthlings.
