I really got into Fight Song last year. On January 1st of this year, Rachel Platten’s Wildfire album was released in its entirety.
If I’d been paying attention, I would’ve noticed that the second similarly empowering single from the album was released in September. Better late than never, right? Heck, it sets a nice tone for a new year. There’s a video for it that isn’t a lyric video, but I kinda prefer this one.
In fact, I’ve actually listened to the whole album and you can find my thoughts on it at My Entertainment World.
I’m a sucker for things like romantic comedies. Or maybe more like a suck-ee? I get sucked into a lot of moments and I’m along for the ride when it comes to most predictable plot lines, getting misty or even more optically humid just as the music starts to swell.
There are definitely pieces of music like that too. The fact that I’m posting a link to this song now is a pretty clear indication that I don’t have my finger on the pulse of new music as it’s released, but I think this song found its way to my eardrums just when I needed it.
I dunno… maybe you’re hearing it for the first time today. I hope it does good things for your state of mind too. Even if you’re not getting your motor running on a theatre project.
…speaking of theatre projects, this week the audition notice was posted for the show I’m directing this fall. You remember the one with the really nifty fundraising strategy, right? Feel free to share both of those links around. And this song, too. Y’never know who might need a bit of a boost.
