Peter Salomone has a hypothesis that unifies the entire cinematic canon, and so far, it has proven to be correct.

Salomone created The Walk of Life Project to test a simple hypothesis: "'Walk of Life' by Dire Straits is the perfect song to end any movie." By seamlessly editing famous film endings with Dire Straits' powerful keyboarding and smooth guitars, he has proven the song's previously unknown power.

Every film ever. One song.

Many look to cinema for a glimpse into different experiences that speak to the universality of the human condition, and Salomone has elevated cinema by proving the universality of one song.

The project proves that "Walk of Life" transcends genre and aligns perfectly with every existing (and future) film.

Who would have thought that Dire Straits—a humble British band formed by two brothers—would encapsulate cinematic finality in a way no other music could?
