Music at Musings: Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over

All of you old followers know of my insane love for Florence + The Machine, and some months ago I saw the video for Dog Days Are Over, Number One.

I love this video. It's so... RAW. What I mean by that is, Florence went out into the woods with her dad, a video camera and a tuxedo, and shot it. Isn't it amazing? Plus, I find the clowns fascinating.

Then a couple of weeks ago, I heard about Dog Days Are Over, Number Two. 2010. But I tried to put off watching it for as long as possible, afraid that it wouldn't live up to my expectations. I know that's silly, but still. I avoided it for weeks, but last night I was watching MTV ROCKS and it just came on... And I stopped breathing. I couldn't draw my eyes away from the screen. My chin was resting on the top of my laptop, and it really hurt but I didn't move it.

And I can't decide which is better. It's really annoying. Both are equally spellbinding in their own way, and I want to put one of them up on the Soundtrack... So I'll let you decide. There's a poll up in the right hand corner where you can vote for your favourite video. You have seven days...

oh my god, I love Florence + the Machine!I know what you mean about the two videos, but i think you could put a blank white video to that song, and it would be brilliant. It's just such an amazing song with such energy.
