Workout Song of the Week: M83

Who doesn't love a strong, steady, synth-filled song to push them towards a great workout?  I know I sure do!  That's why this week's song is: M83 "Midnight City"

Besides being a great song in general, this one is also good for your workout because the beat builds slowly and steadily, leading up to a powerhouse hook and exploding melody.  It's outer-spacey and full of creepy vocals, not to mention a killer saxophone solo.  This is not the song that's going to help you sprint through your last half-mile, instead it's the interlude that helps you fight off your mid-cardio lull when you're past your initial gung-ho start but not quite at that the-end-is-near rush.  Important to note: this song was also used in a Victoria's Secret commercial back in 2012, and there is nothing more motivating for a woman working out than models in sexy lingerie.
