Riff: Calvin Harris – “Sweet Nothing feat. Florence Welch”

Oct 29, 2012

And it’s not enough/To tell me that you care/When we both know the words are empty air

from Sweet Nothing lyrics by Calvin Harris

Florence Welch digs deep to save this one, and for the most part Harris does a good job of not getting in the way. At her best she sounds like Annie Lennox - it’s just a shame that we only get one cameo out of her.

  • SREDY

    THERE IS SUCH A SWEETNESS TO THIS NOTHINGNESS OF BEING THAT FADES AWAY LIKE SMOKE IN THE AIR LEAVING BEHIND INVISIBLE TRACES OF AN EXISTENCE THAT NEVER WAS.SO SWEET.
