[MUSIC] Sia feat. Labrinth, “To Be Human”

I went with a friend to catch Wonder Woman yesterday, and I left impressed. This film caught my attention, with excellent plotting and filming and a star-making turn from Gal Gadot. I can easily believe it capable of supporting the future DC cinematic universe, though I hope it will not have to do so alone.

The song that played over the closing credit was Sia and Labrinth‘s “To Be Human”. This song, all about the limits to love that we know in our world, was a good choice.
