Song of the Day #2,594: ‘Fight Song’ – Rachel Platten

rachel_platten_fight_songI can tell it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these Billboard theme weeks because the first six songs on the chart are all new to the blog. It’s nice to see some fresh blood on the charts.

Rachel Platten finds herself in the #6 spot largely thanks to Taylor Swift, who has promoted Platten’s ‘Fight Song’ both online and in concert. Swift even invited Platten onstage to perform the anthemic track during a concert this summer.

Prior to this year, the Massachusetts-born performer released two solo albums in 2003 and 2011, neither of which sold many copies. She’s an overnight success 12 years in the making.

[Verse 1]
Like a small boat on the ocean
Sending big waves into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

[Pre-Chorus]
And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice?

[Chorus]
This time this is my fight song
Take-back-my-life song
Prove-I’m-alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care
If nobody else believes
Cause I’ve still got
A lot of fight left in me

[Verse 2]
Losing friends and I’m chasing sleep
Everybody’s worried about me
In too deep they say I’m in too deep
And it’s been two years
And I miss my home
But there’s a fire burning in my bones
And I still believe yeah I still believe

[Pre-Chorus]
And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice?

[Chorus]
This time this is my fight song
Take-back-my-life song
Prove-I’m-alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care
If nobody else believes
Cause I’ve still got
A lot of fight left in me

[Verse 1]
Like a small boat on the ocean
Sending big waves into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion

[Chorus/Outro]
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My powers turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care
If nobody else believes
Cause I’ve still got
A lot of fight left in me
Now I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    As anthem songs go, I suppose this is a pretty good one.
