I know the world follows my music tastes with an eager eye, so I thought I should inform it that Dear Reader has already been eclipsed by "the fickle moon, the inconstant moon" of my musical affections. Now I have discovered Florence and the Machine and bought her entire album of 15 tracks on iTunes for a mere £6.99.

I dig her voice. I have never listened to chick bands much in life, I was always into American husky voiced men. What happened to my taste?

Maybe I finally got some?

They won't let me embed the cool songs, but this will do. She seems to have had an attack of "Greek mural" arms though. Or is that squid arms?

Mmmmmm, not bad. But she's not Taylor Swift. :) Ha ha...

The original by Candy Staton and the Source was much better. If you were old enough to remember it.
F&TM sings it too clearly. No longer can you pretend that the first line is:
"Sometimes I feel like throwing my pants up in the air"
like you could when Candy did it.

Additional (SA) music to listen to In My Eyes - Z&G
(maybe a leelte bit rocky for you, but AWESOME video)

Hmmm... not a fan. I think it's largely due to the fact that the music video is a bit like a porno version of the DreamWorks movie intro (with the crescent moon and all). Also not so keen on the sparkly... outfit thing... or the squid arms. Sorry, Polonium. But I think I like Dear Reader better.

Guys you should not judge her on that song, it is rubbish I know, but it is all they would let me embed! I prefer the original. I don't know why she feels the need to wear a glorifed swimming costume either!

But check out Dog days, and howl, and drumming, and Cosmic love. They area really cool and upbeat.

Can't have an opinion due to the fact that I can't access youtube at the moment.

Looking at everyone elses point of view though, I'm guessing that this song is an underwhelming one :P

Since I trust you and your fine music taste though I shall make a note of the chicken's name and check some of her stuff out once I can browse properly again!

Being Brazen said... I still need to check out Dear reader too :)

I liked it.
And your taste is not that bad either.
