My Killers top 5…

30 Oct

I’m so excited! Only one day left to go until the Killers 🙂

So, I have been thinking about my favourite songs which has been tricky as it changes on a daily basis but here’s how it stands at the moment…

Number 5- This River is Wild 

From Sam’s Town, which is possibly my favourite album.

Number 4-Here with Me

This is a very new favourite of mine, from the newly released Battleborn album. I had a very nice surprise in school last week when I heard this song being played by my headteacher, I’ve only ever heard it on the album as it’s not a single. I love singing along to it when I’m driving, you don’t get many power ballads these days 🙂

As my friend Tine pointed out, the lyrics do make you realise how much times (and technology) has changed,  ‘don’t want your picture on my cell-phone’ when I grew up listening to Boyzone singing about faxes (the classic ‘love me for a reason’!)

Number 3- My List

The most powerful chorus…

‘Don’t give the ghost up just clench your fist,
You should have known by now you were on my list’

Number 2- Spaceman

A weird and wonderful song (and video).

My favourite lyrics…

‘Well now I’m back at home,

and I’m looking forward to this life I live’

At number 1 we have… Bones!

I adore this song, there is something about the beat, the lyrics and the horns! I’ve chosen this video as you get to see ALL the instruments within the song, of which there is an amazing array.

So there it is, my (current) top 5 favourite songs by the Killers. Another song which I love and is deserving of a mention, though not strictly speaking a Killers song, is their cover of Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits. The Sawdust album is a must for any fan, as it contains many covers and re-arranged songs.

Let the countdown begin…

    My favourite post so far!!! Mighty excited too and what a great idea to list a top 5! Totally with you on River is Wild, Spaceman and Bones… but My list? Great song but not in my top 5. Think I would put For Reasons Unknown in there and All These Things I’ve Done. Hoping they do their beautiful rendition of Romeo and Juliet “… you exploded in my heart” – it’s just the way Brandon Flowers sings it! And of course being “apologetically dressed” is pure Killers genius!
