New Music Friday: Just a Girl by Florence + the Machine

I wasn’t going to write a New Music Friday post this week because I didn’t listen to much music this week with everything going on with my cat, so I didn’t have anything on deck to write about and I didn’t have time to look into anything earlier today because I had a whole lot of work I had to catch up on since my attentions were very much not focused on work earlier this week. Then while I was washing dishes tonight, I heard the cover of No Doubt’s “Just a Girl” by Florence + the Machine made for the new season of Yellowjackets. So I figured I might as well throw together a quick blog post about it. I’m not a huge fan of the original song, and honestly I’m not sure how much more I like this version of it. As an academic examination of it as a cover though, I do appreciate it because it does what I like about cover songs in that it’s clearly still the original song but it brings something completely new and different to it. I do like how it’s kind of this slow haunting verse that peps up a little bit in the chorus and then finally breaks wide open at the very end of the song. And that’s what I have to say about that.
