Useless Magic
Useless Magic: Lyrics and Poetry | Florence Welch
24 posts | 14 read | 36 to read
Lyrics and never-before-seen poetry and sketches from the iconic vocalist of Florence and the Machine Songs can be incredibly prophetic, like subconscious warnings or messages to myself, but I often don't know what I'm trying to say till years later. Or a prediction comes true and I couldn't do anything to stop it, so it seems like a kind of useless magic.

Become a beacon
Keep that flame alive
The future is within -you-
It burns bright in your heart

raise your love
hold it high
let it shine for miles and miles

you are not alone

Megabooks Dawn, I love running into you here! You‘re a great person and Litten! 4mo

This was a gorgeous book, both in the physical sense and in terms of the content. It‘s a lyrics and poetry collection interspersed with artwork, photos, and handwritten notes. I definitely have a deeper appreciation for Florence + The Machine‘s music after this book and will have those albums on repeat for days 🎵

TrishB It‘s a lovely book 💜 7mo

I‘m really only a casual Florence + The Machine fan but I‘m enjoying this beautiful book of her lyrics, poetry, artwork, and handwritten notes.

This book is so nice I almost had to keep it for myself! I'm sending it on a trip to Virginia for my friend who absolutely loves Florence and the Machines and Florence Welch. I hope it's everything my friend could want. (I'll have to settle for reading the Ebook version of it!)

I have been a fan of Florence‘s music for about a decade now and she continues to amaze me with her word-smithing. Listening to her music is like looking at a Renaissance painting (I know I‘m coming across as rather ridiculous in this review, but it‘s true) and having those lyrics written down in a collection adds so much more depth to them. Everything is so raw and so real with her and I love it.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Florence Welch still captures my heart. I‘ve been a fan of Florence and the Machine since “Lungs” and was excited to get my hands on this book. Florence has a unique way of thinking about things and I enjoyed this snapshot of her world. I couldn‘t give this book a full 5 stars due to some grammar issues and some of the poems went over my head, but I still recommend this nonetheless.

“I make songs to tie people to me,
With a ribbon of fantasy around their necks
Such a beautiful bow
That I hold in my fist.
And will not let go.”

- from the poem American Mother

This was sort of a scrap book of lyrics, a few poems, notes, photographs, and artwork. It‘s worth checking out if you‘re a fan.

LazyDays I like this band , just found out about the book! 12mo

This beautiful book is reigniting my love for Florence + The Machine‘s music. “Lungs” is one of my favorite albums of all time, but I‘ve been a bad fan lately. So, I just ordered their last 2 CDs ... yes, I still listen to CDs. I can‘t be the only one, right? I blame my older vehicle.

PS. I‘m missing my dog so much. 😭 Today, my very sweet husband bought me flowers, encouraged me to escape to the tub for a while + brought me wine. 💕

Christine Love her music and bookishness! Look forward to hearing your review of this. (P.S. Had not realized you had to let your dog go already - sending wishes for comfort your way and so glad your husband is giving you a steady dose of it. ❤️) 13mo
JenReadsAlot I'm sorry 😢 it's so hard... 13mo

One of my all time favorite bands, Florence and the Machine came out with a new cd recently and I've been listening to it on repeat! I love love love Florence. I love her so much I got one of my tattoos because of her. Even though I won't get around to reading it for a while, I'm happy to know she just recently put out a book of lyrics and poems 😍

TrishB Love her too 💕 hubby got me a signed copy of the book! 13mo
TieDyeDude The first single, Hunger, is magnificent! I need to find time to sit with the rest of the album. I have a feeling it needs more attention than a casual listen. 13mo
CaliforniaCay @TrishB you lucky duck 🦆What a great gift! 13mo
CaliforniaCay @GoodForCirculation Hunger was my favorite at first...until I heard Big God and June and Grace. Every song is good really, I hope you get a chance to listen to the whole thing soon and 🤗 13mo

Okay so, I‘m not really a poetry person. I‘m giving this a good mark because the book has all of her lyrics and cool pictures. She has a lot of little writings that are cool but I can‘t really read them. Also, she uses the wrong form of your/you‘re a lot and it‘s bothersome. It seriously broke my heart a little. But either way, if you like Florence + the Machine, you‘ll love this. If you don‘t, you‘ll probably hate it.

britt_brooke That‘s crazy about the your/you‘re. Where are the editors?? Yikes. I like her, though, and got my copy yesterday. 13mo
Geeklet @britt_brooke It was from her own writings, like the pictures of scribbles in her own handwriting. I guess she had her own reasons for not altering the work before she printed it but it‘s distracting. It‘s still a very cool collection of quotes and lyrics. The book cover is also fuzzy!! (edited) 13mo
britt_brooke @Geeklet Oh ok. That makes sense, but also kinda disappointing. Planning to read it soon. It‘s so beautiful. 💕 13mo
