Various artists - Wild: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

This soundtrack for the movie adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir, starring Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, features some inspired choices. Bruce Springsteen’s “Tougher Than the Test,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound” and the Hollies’ “The Air that I Breathe” provide note-perfect accompaniment to a tale of survival and self discovery during a 1,600-km wilderness hike.
