Song of the Day – Fighter by Christina Aguilera
Yesterday I focused all my musical energy into obsessing over Britney Spears. While on a run with a friend we started talking about Britney and made our way to discussing her song Stronger. It hit us that all Diva’s seem to have a song titled Stronger or with the main theme focusing on being stronger.
I thought about posting Britney’s Stronger today, but I realized that I used Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger as a song of the day in May. I wanted to mix things up a bit and that is when I realized that one singer I haven’t posted or discussed is Christina.
This song takes me back to high school. My girlfriends and I would put the top down on my yellow Mustang convertible, pop in this CD and blast Fighter so loud I know that we annoyed every house we drove past. None-the-less we did it almost everyday because it gave us a sense of strength. There is a reason that all diva’s seem to have a song with this theme. People need the encouragement, often through music, to be a fighter. To be stronger. To keep on keeping on.
Christina definitely delivered the needed encouragement with this song. I know I will listen to it at least 5 times on today’s run because it is just that good.
