Listen To Flo On Poetry Show Rhyme And Reason

Fri 7 Jan, 2011

Florence appeared on BBC Radio 4's Rhyme and Reason to discuss her song lyrics and how her love of poetry has influenced her music.

Speaking to poet Mr Gee, Flo recites poetry by T.S. Elliot and lyrics by Tom Waits before talking about her own style of writing;

"Poets don't write what they know, they write what they don't know... Love and death and fear and violence, I sort of turn them into stories or things that I can understand."

The full interview is only available until Tuesday 14th January so make sure you catch it before then. Click here to listen to it.

  • Flo-Your words are the most beautiful things I have ever heard, your songs move me to tears and bring forth dormant memories that remind me what it is to love and live and hurt. Thank you. You make life sound beautiful.
