Rachel Platten - Stand By You - On Stand By You Album (2015)
2015 Best Radio Hits On WLCY Radio

After finding her own inner strength on one of the year’s most massive hits with Fight Song, Rachel Platten returns with an equally-compelling anthem. Stand by You, co-written with fun.‘s Jack Antonoff, is cut from the same empowering fabric, but the sonic elements seem far grander and more accessible. Instead of projecting the message onto herself and her own journey—”this is my fight song, take back my life song” she rallies on her first-ever Top 10 hit—the 34-year-old singer-songwriter turns to the downtrodden. She etches out a storyline of hope as she reaches out to her fellow underdog and offers a sage piece of advice. “Put your empty hands in mine, and scars…show me all the scars you hide. And hey, if your wings are broken, please take mine so yours can open, too,” she coos on the opening verse.
