I’ve talked quite a bit about the Twilight: Eclipse Soundtrack, which was released a couple of weeks ago. The soundtrack featured some exciting names, but like the last soundtrack, it seemed that the names were a bigger deal than the actual songs themselves. Maybe I’m jut not feeling the never-dying, morose melancholy each song is contractually obligated to secrete, or maybe it’s just that more often than not, these arists aren’t saving their prize work for a Twilight soundtrack. Obviously there are some gems in each soundtrack, something that did not skip Eclipse; Florence and the Machine’s contribution would be one of those gems.
The song, “Heavy In Your Arms” is but an extension to Florence’s gorgeous debut record, Lungs. This woman is immensely talented, and you can feel it in every song she throws herself into. If there ever was a song to score a love triangle involving vampires, werewolves and a stupid girl, it would be this one — and I mean that in the best way possible.
Can we get this on True Blood?
