this is my favorite killers song. i don’t really know why. perhaps it’s the emotion behind it. i tried to find the article i read this in, but i couldn’t. anyways, the article was saying that brandon flowers wrote this song for his mother who suffers from a brain tumor, and probably will die. after i read that, i could really hear the emotion in flower’s voice. the clip below is the david letterman performance, and at about 3:30-3:50 you can really hear the emotion and see actual tears in flower’s eyes. you think about how many time he has to preform that and how much he has to fight back tears… at least, i do.
another really good version is the abbey road live:
but the music video is pretty good, too:
well, enjoy the listed versions. i get goosebumps everytime i hear this song. that ability to project emotion proves that these guys are talented guys.
