With a joyful and anthemic ambience to it, and lashings of positivity and power coming through in the rich vocals and swaggering melody, it’s no shrinking violet of a song, that’s for sure. It’s a song designed to carry a personal message but sound universal, so much so that you can imagine an arena audience singing along at the chorus, but still thinking the song is for them alone.
