Video Spotlight: Florence and the Machine Covers "I'm Goin' Down"


Back in April, Blogness on the Edge of Town ran a great series of posts featuring their favorite covers of Springsteen songs. While they highlighted a lot of great songs, I really like this one cover of "I'm Goin' Down" by Florence and the Machine - and not just because "I'm Goin' Down" is one of my favorite songs.

I really like this version because it sounds to me like the kind of song you might hear in a quirky romantic comedy during a montage at the end of the second act right after the two lovers have had their first major fight. I like to listen to this version and stare wistfully into the distance, as if I'm contemplating some difficult life decision.
