Mr. Brightside by The Killers

The first time I heard this song, I think it was back in 2006, it immediately became one of my favorites (I really like alternative/pop rock music). If the song was a drug it would be my upper... I would listen to it whenever i need to enter hyper mode (my course, and now my job is physically and mentally demanding). Some time later, I stumbled into a write up regarding the song (please read below)

"Killers guitarist Dave Keuning wrote this about lead signer Brandon Flowers' ex-girlfriend who cheated on him. Flowers recalled to Q magazine March 2009 how he discovered her with another man at the Crown and Anchor pub in his hometown of Las Vegas: "I was asleep and I knew something was wrong. I have these instincts. I went to the Crown and Anchor and my girlfriend was there with another guy." Flowers added that the song was "born" at the Crown and Anchor. (thanks, Hannah - East Kilbride, Scotland)" -

After reading the statement above, the song became my favorite not just because of the up beat melody and creative lyrics but also because of the story behind it. Being able to relate to the song made me realize... I'm Mr. Brightside

Enjoy the video ^_^


  1. And I just can't look - it's killing me
    And taking control
    Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
    Turning through sick lullabies
    Choking on your alibis
    But it's just the price I pay
    Destiny is calling me
    Open up my eager eyes
    '˜Cause I'm Mr Brightside

    Nice song parekoy!
