  • Swedish duo First Aid Kit recorded a somber cover for the soundtrack of the 2014 hiking drama Wild. The Söderberg sisters were approached by Wild music supervisor Susan Jacobs to work on the soundtrack in 2014. "Our parents played a lot of R.E.M. growing-up - 'Losing My Religion' was probably one of the first of the group's songs we heard," Klara Söderberg told Billboard magazine. "'But 'Walk Unafraid' and the lyrics 'I'll trip, fall, pick myself up and walk unafraid' resonate with Cheryl's story in the film."
