Day 21 – A Song That You Listen to When You’re Happy

The Dog Days are Over – Florence and the Machine

Therein Lies the Rub…

8 Jun

It’s always the way that whenever there’s something I want there is some sort of barrier…

So not to be an advertisement for O2 or anything but this song is amazing!!!

As soon as I saw this ad I needed to know what it was. So I went searching usually if you search some sort of vague thing like “song from O2 ad” people have already done the work for you. So that was grand, I found the song: Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine just so you know Florence and the Machine is basically a lovely lady named Florence Welch (Florence) and a collaboration of other artists who provide backing music for her voice (The Machine)

Here's Florence Herself - Hawt?

Here's Florence Herself - Hawt?

She won the critics choice award at the Brits this year, she came third in the BBC’s sound of 2009 (Above Gaga!)

AND

She’s Been called “the sexiest red head in music”


Anyway Back to my story…

So here comes the tricky part. A while back I decided to no longer download music illegally for several reasons including guilt, wanting artists I actually liked to make money from my purchase, wanting to have proper album art on my Ipod and not wanting to have any of those tracks that fit phrases like “Music on demand” into the song. It may fit very well but it’s not supposed to be there. I don’t need your advertisement!!

I like things to be just so. I may have mentioned that before.

So my relatively new found morals limit me from being able to get songs until their release date.

Florence and the Machine’s debut album Lungs

Lungs_FatM

is not expected to be released until the 3rd July (I’ll be off on my summer adventure by then). Why oh Why did they put it on that ad, I suppose just to torture us law conscious, slightly obsessive compulsive Lovers of music!! The same thing has happened with Bulletproof By La Roux which isn’t out until the 18th June (the day before my birthday!!). at least i’ll be in the country for that one though.

I’m stuck for the moment only able to listen to the song when at my computer on Youtube.

Link to the full song here

It’s Lyrics are great!!

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it’s left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
[ Florence And The Machine Lyrics are found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

All in all this turned out to be a significantly longer post than expected but I like how it’s turned out it’s a little scattered but so is my thought process so hope you enjoyed it…

Here’s some more of Florence and the Machine
