Florence and the Machine - You've Got the Love (Island)
Recent Critics' Choice BRIT Award-winners Florence and the Machine originally released 'You’ve Got the Love' as a B-side on 'Dog Days Are Over', but due to high praise for the Source cover has now been released as a digital download.
Florence And The Machine have used the format of the original remix but have certainly breathed new life into this old classic. With Florence Welch’s distinctive voice she makes this song her own. The inclusion of a harp only adds to the gentle sway effect produced by the track, bursting gently in without malice at around eighteen seconds in.
The song's lyrics are empowering: Florence’s heavenly voice has a vulnerable quality which, as it has with her relatively short career so far, grows stronger through You've Got The Love's verse and chorus. It's empowering, liberating and moving all at the same time, not least conveyed by the emotion in Welch's vocals.
Florence And The Machine have been hotly-tipped as one to watch in 2009, and with this wonderful cover, a BRIT Award, third place in the BBC’s Sound of 2009 poll and a slot on the Shockwaves NME Awards tour, this is just the beginning for the inspirational soul goddess.
