You know why I can't love this track? How she expresses 'Explosion'! It just grates my gears for a reason i'm yet to establish why. Mum rock at it's best!

Fängt ruhiger an, steigert sich aber zum Refrain hin, so dass es schon kämpferischer klingt. Gefällt mir gut.

Ich kann schon verstehen, warum dieser Song keine 6 kriegt. Vielleicht hätte ich auch nur eine 4 oder 5 gegeben, würde ich es zu einer anderen Zeit entdecken. Manchmal bewerte ich einfach mit meinen Gefühlen. Ich verbinde gerade so vieles mit diesem Song und meinem Leben..

Die Sorgen von Chemmical möchte ich haben, und sonst keine. Dann könnte ich wohl glücklich sterben. Selbstverständlich ist dieser kraftvolle Popsong alles andere als schlecht, wenngleich er mich auch zu keiner überschäumenden Euphorie verleitet.

I have avoided reviewing this for so long because I couldn't put my thoughts into words. Well, there is bland & generic and then there is Fight Song; it's just about every cliché from the last 5 years put into one song. Obviously that makes it an easy target to hate on which is kind of ironic since it tries so hard to be harmless, but it certainly does deserve a 1* rating for making me feel so very frustrated. Actually I'm not even sure that word describes my feelings about this, but to be fair this song is quite unique in that regard. A bit endearing too, but ugh, I never want to hear it again.

Finde ich auch. Auch in den US-AC-Charts ist der seit mehreren Wochen die Nr. 1, was doch einiges aussagt. Schöner eingängiger Song, dem ich hier mehr Erfolg gegönnt hätte. Klare 5.

Ich weiß nicht warum, aber vom Gesang und Musikstil her muss ich hierbei ständig an Leann Rimes denken. Und wie es der Song auf Platz 1 in Großbritannien geschafft hat, bleibt für mich immer noch fraglich. Ganz normaler Song... 3*

Ein Song voller Emotionen. Vielleicht sollten sich die Zuhörer eher darauf konzentrieren, als nur Vergleiche anzustellen.
Zwischen laut und leise, zerbrechlich und euphorisch. Yes, Baby!

Lustig wenn man die Kommentare liest und immer wieder die Vergleiche mit Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato u.v.m. liest. Daran kann man schon erkennen wie beliebig austauschbar die Stimmen der derzeit angesagten Pop-Sängerinnen sind. Da bildet für mich auch Rachel Platten keine Ausnahme. Generell finde ich den Song aber okay.

This theme has been done to death and so self help motivational songs can now come across as clichéd. This is a good song with a pace that keeps it interesting. UK#1 and Ireland#6.

#1 in UK - sie will ihr Leben zurück - das bringt sie im aufbrechenden Chorus zum Ausdruck ... nett aber stimmlich etwas unauffällig.

I eventually came to the conclusion that THANK GOODNESS FOR THIS SONG.

The thing is that in the music industry, everyone's different. But that's too much to handle generally so everyone has to go into a box and fit with other people who are loosely the same via a criterion that someone else decided upon. So essentially image becomes very important, but that leads to some very unfortunate things.

Like for instance, the whole thing is sexist as hell. People just have a hard time grasping that women can be as talented as men. That's why you get embarrassing turf war of 'real music' vs. 'manufactured pop rubbish', which sees a pretty blatant gender split. In Australia, Triple M & 96FM are the two stations that go so far as to include 'real music' in their slogans (not the most embarrassing ones they have, mind you). At the time of writing, the top 20 most played songs in the past week between them has an egregious 2:1 ratio. That ratio is bands with only male members to male solo artists. That covers all 20 songs.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is most noted for boyfriend troubles, Lady Gaga's talent isn't acknowledged because she's ridiculous, Björk has to explain the absurd concept to interviewers that she produces her music, Lauren Mayberry gets mocked for calling out misogyny. For that matter, you don't need to look hard on this site to find an inappropriate use of 'sl*t', 'b*tch' or 'wh*re'. Anyone who is reading this, if you've used those words inappropriately, I implore you to download your reviews, search for those words and fully remove them (don't just censor). That vile filth is one of the reasons why I actively avoid >95% of reviews here now.

So when Rachel Platten writes a song about "a lot of experiences that were hurting [her] and that were making [her] feel like maybe [she] didn’t have a chance in this industry", and it actually takes off, good for her! Since the stations that specialise in the area have a predominant male bias, there's just no market for a female singer-songwriter (in Australia, most get their biggest success when guesting on a rap or dance single with an odd history of excluded credits), even as the swing of events turns it into the pop zeitgeist. If this is the start of it, then I'm quite happy for it.

Also the song is quite catchy, her voice is pleasant enough (I also randomly observe that for the chorus, the backing vocals that sing "start it right now" sound remarkably like Ellie Goulding). The piano gets dangerously close to Pachelbel territory, though it is a little buried in the mix anyhow. No masterpiece really but I'm happy to see it in the charts.

Ziemlich gewöhnliche Plastik-Produktion, bei der ich aber nicht wissen sollte, wieso sie nicht ziehen sollte. Meines Erachtens ziemlich genau die Richtung, die derzeit auch Taylor Swift musikalisch bedient - und die ich bei ihr schon unheimlich plastisch und langweilig finde, sie aber zu einer der erfolgreichsten Künstlerinnen unserer Zeit macht. Allerdings sind "Shake It Off" und "Blank Space" stärker produziert als das hier.

Ordentliche 3.

Ich hoffe, dass der Song auch nach Europa kommt. Im Radio würde er wahrscheinlich auf und ab laufen.

One of the better mum pop (?) songs. It's been a slow grower but a strong grower. The chorus hits with some gusto, adding to the enjoyment. It should be tacky but the "one match ... make an explosion" line makes some impact on reflection. A nice feel good track for the 2015 archives. 3.7*

Ein überraschend grosser Erfolg in den US, Australien und Neuseeland. Vielleicht ja auch bald in Europa? Der Track ist zwar nichts Neues oder spektakulär, kommt aber frisch rüber... 4*

edit: Schade war das kein grösserer Hit für die sehr sympathische Rachel in Europa. Nun rauf auf eine 5* - das Album "Wildfire" bietet aber noch bessere Stücke.

Toller Track der US-Amerikanischen Sängerin. Gefällt mir sehr gut. Man spürt die Power welche eben dieser "Fight Song" rüberbringen soll.

Vom Aussehen her erinnert sie mich etwas an Hilary Duff, nur die Stimme von Rachel Platten ist stärker.
Wäre mir als Sommer-Hit deutlich lieber als Goodbye von Feder! Hoffe dass er den Einstieg in die Charts noch schafft. Gebe gerne 5*

More like bland song amirite? :P

This song didn't give me much when I first listened to it and it still gives me little. It sounds like failed inspirational catered towards middle-aged mums and while I get that music like that will probably always be around in the charts due to things like The Voice and tv promos, it's not something that usually does much for me. Given that Platten is 34, it perhaps shouldn't come as much of a surprise that it sounds like it does. Lyrically it does sound cliché and the hook just sounds very odd in an unpleasant way that I haven't been able to shake since first listen. I'm at a bit of a loss as to why it's doing so well and so late in its chart run, it feels like it should've left the top 50 already.

I'd hope she's right that she has a lot of fire left in her, because this has very little of it. That said, it's not offensive which means I generally can tolerate listening to it.

It's nice, but her songwriting is bad. I don't know anything about Rachel Platten, but I really hope she is a teenager with these kind of lyrics.

Okay.

EDIT: After hearing this many times on the radio over the last few months, I'm still confused by this song's success, as it really is quite a poor attempt at music in general.

Something you could definitely file under "failed inspirational".

3* -> 2*

EDIT 2: I can't believe this took me so long to edit again. Easily one of the worst songs of 2015. I'm sure I'll get around to explaining why someday.

2* -> 1*

2015 thus far is churning out plenty of hits with verses that sound nothing like the chorus. The lack of cohesion in this is laughable. All in all though it's nothing bad, however I almost certainly will never care for it.

So the first verse and the pre-chorus are actually quite good. They have an interesting melody and the vocals are solid enough and the lyrics aren't especially woeful. I actually really like the match/explosion line. But that chorus is just about the most pathetic thing I've heard in music. I despise it. A terrible attempt that can only be classed as failed inspirational; move aside plastic bag, a new queen of lame is stinking things up!

It's so bad that it comes across as the sort of thing an unhappy twelve year old girl would write in her diary after she's had a bad day at school, but she can't write for shit. Rhyming "song" with "song" and "song" does nothing to change my opinion there; it's lazy and sounds poor.

"Prove I'm alright song" is the line that bugs me most; it's supposedly an empowerment song, but where's the empowerment in needing to prove you're alright? Just being alright should be enough; if you're truly alright you don't need to prove it to anyone. And then later (in the one line of the chorus that sounds good) she says "and I don't really care if nobody else believes", which is clear crap considering she was just trying to use this song to prove she's alright, so she must care what people believe.

Good for this if it does actually help someone deal with some crap they're going through, but for me it can do nothing other than disappoint me that the decent opening turns to.....that.
