10 best Florence and the Machine covers in order of howliness

Florence Welch renders her signature “howl” to Ben E. King classic Stand By Me for Final Fantasy XV. “I’ve always seen Final Fantasy as mythical, beautiful and epic,” said Florence Welch in a statement. “Stand by Me is one of the greatest songs probably of all time and you can’t really improve on it, you just have to make it your own. For me it was just about bringing the song into the world of Florence and the Machine and the world of Final Fantasy.”
