I chose “Fight Song” because of its vibrant melody, and that extra oomph, that rush of energy that shoots down the spine when the words hit home. Rachel has most certainly created a hit, a sensation if you will; it’s very motivational, moving, and one might agree that this is the “Rocky Balboa” theme song of our generation. This song is our guide to climb to the mountain top, to charge the world in full throttle. This song is the typical motivational song, the words are inspiring and the melody combinations make it even more invigorating. This will be the song playing when we conquer our dreams.
