Songs with a little romance... (Florence + The Machine, The Killers, & The Cure)

Considering that my life is pretty much romanceless these days, I guess that I'm living vicariously. Maybe it's more something about favorite songs from my past, the endless hours they spent on repeat, that catch my heart and make me a little extra emotional. Whatever it is, here's a new one and two oldies but goodies.

Florence + The Machine - Kiss With A Fist

I'm guessing that I shouldn't want to dance this much to a song outlining domestic violence, but I do. I really wanted to dislike Florence + The Machine because her "quirky" Stevie Nicks look sort of annoys me, but I find the lyrics to be quirky and the tunes to be pretty rockin'. I guess I should know better than to judge based solely on looks.

The Killers - Romeo and Juliet

All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme... Pure perfection. I'm sure that I've probably posted this song multiple times, but that's just a testament to just how much I love it. The first time I heard this song was in Empire Records. Remember Mark tried to hit on the ballerina listening to the headphones? Ahh, good times. I loved it instantly. I can't do the talk, like the talk on the TV. And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be. I can't do everything but I'll do anything for you. I can't do anything except be in love with you...

The Cure - The Walk

I was raised on The Cure. Somewhere around 6th grade, I remember visiting my sister Anissa in Pennsylvania. They had gotten their first CD player, so she let me borrow a bunch of her cassette tapes. I remember Echo & The Bunnymen, The Psychedelic Furs, and The Cure'sStaring At The Sea (cue ohs and ahs). My entire idea of romance is based on the ridiculous number of hours that I have spent listening to Robert Smith croon. This song shuffled on my iPod the other day and it just struck me with the funk. Plus, I love anything with a patented Robert Smith maow. I kissed you in the water and made your dry lips sing...
