Shake It Out by Florence + the Machine

I am so very much in love with the song Shake It Out by Florence + the Machine. It’s a great anthem about putting the past behind you and moving on. I adore the way it’s a slow burn building throughout the song into a big crescendo. The show Covert Affairs used the instrumental parts of the song during their season finale in some tension building scenes and it worked beautifully as the soundtrack. That musical style is one of the things that I really like about most of Mumford & Sons’ songs too. They start off slowly and just keep building until there’s that wonderful release. Writing this is making me think I should create a playlist of great songs that use that musical style. What would you put on it?
