Just Because Music : Rachel Platten’s “I’m gonna stand by you” and “Fight Song”

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard a song that seemed to fit into the parameters of my “Just Because Music” category, but here one is — Rachel Platten’s I’m gonna stand by you.  And no, I have no idea what those parameters are; it’s just that some songs run through my head and I want to share them.

Incidentally, extra points for anyone who can tell me what the heck the video has to do with the song.

And if you like Platten’s vocal style and music choices, you can also check out her first hit, Fight Song. The video disappoints me, though. I thought it would have some MMA stuff.
