'A Kiss With a Fist is Better Than None'

One of the best parts of Summer is getting out on the open road, driving with the windows down and cranking up the stereo. One track that has been on heavy rotation this Summer on my stereo is "Kiss With a Fist" by the UK's Florence and the Machine, which is one of the most fun and pure straight ahead rock numbers you'll hear this year. I know the song has been out there for quite some time now in the UK, but fresh off her recent 'Mercury Prize' nomination and an impending US release date for her debut album, Lungs, out this October, I thought It was worth throwing it out there again.

Kiss With A Fist - Florence And The Machine

...you hit me once
i hit you back
you gave a kick
i gave a slap
you smashed a plate
over my head
then i set fire to our bed

My black eye casts no shadow
your red eye sees no pain
your slaps don't stick
your kicks don't hit
so we remain the same
blood sticks and
sweat drips
break the lock if it don't fit
a kick in the teeth is good for some
a kiss with a fist is better than none
