I love music and I always have an ear to the ground listening for some new sounds.

I used to spend hours in my local record shop before they had to close up, but now it’s seems one of the best ways to discover new music is through blogs. Problem is, anybody can write a music blog, so the tough thing is finding ones you like and trust.

Today on the morning show, we talked about 2014 Summer Songs and after digging around a bit, I stumbled upon a song called “Rather Be” by the UK group Clean Bandit.

Sometimes in the UK, songs will have a tremendous amount of success before they cross over the pond to the United States. Such is the case with “Rather Be!”

When it was released, it became the nation’s fastest-selling single and a hit No. 1 song in five countries. It’s also the world’s most Shazam-ed song and the video has been viewed over 56 Million times! Crazy how a song can be so big somewhere else, but for whatever reason, the tides have yet to flood the globe with it.

Check out Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” for today’s Viral Video of the Day. It’s got a cool down-tempo vibe to it that I really dig and features guest vocals from Jess Glynne.
