Kat Hennessey: "Little Bird" (Annie Lennox). I discovered Annie Lennox as a teenager, and this song to date is still in my top ten favorite songs of life. It talks about limitations, fearing what we could become, letting go of the things that weigh us down, and finding the courage to spread our wings and become who we're meant to be. I put this song on when I need a jolt of energy to get up and go… From the first "Ahhs," I get the chills, and when that beat kicks in, a smile spreads across my face. I wanna dance, I wanna run, and I get the strength to go after anything.
They always said that you knew best But this little bird's fallen out of that nest now I've got a feeling that it might have been blessed So I've just got to put these wings to test
