Song of the Day: Somebody Told Me
Today’s song is Somebody Told Me by The Killers.
This era was far more my speed. Yeah, punk had to die to get to this point, but damn if it didn’t create some absolutely beautiful blends.
Maybe it was just the solid material that Flowers and the Killers brought to the table. All I know is that this track holds up like a champ.
Well somebody told me you had a boyfriend
who looked like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year.
It’s fun knowing that a 2004 song could still hit just as hard if released today. That’s a sign of a solid release.
Great synth, with a supremely-energized garage pop feel.
I grew up with this song, and I can still appreciate it (with a critical viewpoint not masked by nostalgia).
Hot Fuss was an excellent debut album (and it features the group’s most-known work). For that, I wanted to highlight this track in particular.

I’ve talked about hundreds of them, so you’re bound to find something entertaining.
