    You know, I haven’t listened to much Florence and the Machine, despite your continual praise of them. Now I’m wondering, why? This is such a good song with interesting, poetic lyrics and such unique instrumentation. The album is out in November, eh? Good, that should be enough time to catch up with all of their songs released so far. Knowing me, I will probably become a little obsessed for awhile (as I tend to do when I discover really talented artists).

    Hehe, when the blonde girl was shown dancing on the table, I thought, “That is definitely Kim.” 😉

    1. Well, if I made you take a second listen and become a Flo fan, I guess I’m doing my job right 😉 And I will take full responsibility when you become obsessed. It’s the least I can do. Lol.

      Yes, Flo always has the most interesting, intricate lyrics and melodies. This song is a bit different than her first album, though it just seems like a natural progression from the previous one (Does that make sense?). I love the part toward the end when the percussion swells and the tempo changes. There’s so many different types of musical styles mixed in this one song. I love it.

      Haha! I’m the one dancing on the table, huh? Well, I must admit, listening to Florence makes me want to get up and dance, but the hair color is way off. Lol 🙂

      P.S: I highly suggest getting the deluxe version of their first album, “Lungs.” It’s definitely worth it.
