Euphoria

  Shake It Out by Florence + The Machine

Shake It Out by Florence + The Machine

eu·pho·ri·a
A feeling of happiness or well-being sometimes exaggerated in pathological states as mania.  

The voice of Florence Welch from Florence + The Machine is my drug of choice to get my mind into a state of euphoria.  Her music transcends through my soul and hits me with every note. 

I discovered Florence back in 2010, and ever since, my body craves her songs like an addict craves their drug.  With her new album set to release in the next few months, I have been preparing.

The harps and piano, the choir - almost evangelical, the lyrics, her voice; they are haunting and beautiful and magical.  Her songs paint stories in my mind. Her voice takes me out of my body and envelops me in every emotion possible.

I created the following playlist in hopes you would all be able to feel the sheer brilliance that is Florence + The Machine. I adjusted the order of the songs, taking some out and adding some in as I went along all her creations.  After precariously making sure it was perfect, I listened to it in full and I cried. 

I had a spiritual and emotional experience listening to this playlist.  I want you to experience that.  All of you who listen to this playlist, I urge you to put down your phone and all distractions.  Put your headphones on and for the next hour let her voice take your mind into a new world. You will not be disappointed.
