Paloma Faith’s ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This‘ is her most successful single so far, having made it to the number 6 spot in the UK charts. I’ve heard the song a few times since it released back in May, and I’ve always liked it.
But….I was blown away by a live performance of ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’ that Paloma did for the Burberry fashion show recently, and that’s why it’s my Repeat Rotation Video today.
Sure, the venue wasn’t the best for the performance (who wants to look at fashion models when Paloma’s voice is so incredible here?), but what’s undisputable is this is the best performance Paloma Faith has ever recorded of ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’. Anywhere.
It’s raw, it’s powerful, it’s touching, and Paloma hits every note as clearly and as perfectly as it’s possible to do. The song itself is also over seven minutes long to accommodate the time it takes for all the models to be on the catwalk – so it’s sort of the extended version.
It’s one of the most beautiful live performances of any song I’ve ever seen. Anywhere. And Paloma Faith rocks. And rocks. And rocks.
Watch it below. But be prepared for the goosebumps.
