My Favorite 4 Minutes of Music: May 8, 2013

There have been some seriously good tunes for motivating and inspiring me lately!  I love that music has taken a turn for the positive.  The song I'm obsessed with at the moment is "Wings" by Little Mix.  I heard this song for the first time maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago at the SRC (on the new "Matador Music" station).  I Shazam'ed it because it definitely sounded like a tune that I should know, and I hadn't heard it before.  Since then, I've heard it several other times, including when the top 4 girls on American Idol decided to cover it. 

This morning, I was running laps at the SRC and this song got me through the final mile (my total was 4.5 miles!  Woo hoo!).  I played it three times in a row.  Then as I walked back to the locker room, it came on Matador Music!  This made me remember that I haven't posted a blog in a while, so it was just the inspiration I needed to dust off the old blogger account.

After some further research I discovered the Little Mix was actually the season 8 champion of X-Factor UK.  I can't believe that I hadn't already heard of them, considering that I'm usually up on my reality-competition-music shows.  Anyway, I'm happy to have found them, and found this song.  Hopefully it will put some pep in your step like it did for me!  :-)
