The music world just can’t get enough of Florence! Joining the ranks of legends like Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Nirvana, Florence + The Machine’s MTV Unplugged performance is sure to go down in history. Recorded in New York City with a 10-piece gospel choir, the concept of Unplugged is to record and film an artist without any instruments “plugged in” (save for mics, of course) in order to really hear their vocals and lyrics. With news of the the CD and DVD available today, we thought we’d base the best songs from the album around your favorite Florence lyrics:
3. Shake It Out
“Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground / ‘Cause I like to keep my issues drawn / It’s always darkest before the dawn / Shake it out, shake it out”
2. Cosmic Love
“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”
1. Dog Days Are Over
“Leave all your love and your longing behind / You can’t carry it with you if you want to survive / The dog days are over”
