Song of the Day: Mr. Brightside

Today’s song is Mr. Brightside by The Killers.

Alt-Rock.
Been a fan of Brandon Flowers for years, and knowing that this was the first major single by the Killers makes sense.
I’m confident is stating that this is the ‘Take on Me’ of the aughts. It just encapsulates the 2000’s like few other songs.
It is a classic, and it will be remembered as such.

Coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine.
Gotta gotta be down because I want it all.

This whole album was, for lack of a better word, killer. Such a strong debut.

I’ve heard this song hundreds of times, and I still enjoy singing it. That is a major indication of a song’s resonance.
I can recommend choosing this track at any karyoke location, as it will ALWAYS garner support.

A set of buildings in blue, with red neon signs at the rooftops with Chinese characters. The album's title "Hot Fuss" appears in red text.
