Song of the week ...

I know the Killers are probably way too mainstream at this point and time ... that doesn't mean that I can't like their music, right? Sam's Town was their second album, and overall it was pretty good - probably not as complete as Hot Fuss was, but still. (And I haven't heard much from the newest album yet).

However, there is a hidden gem on Sam's Town that many people seem to overlook (or worse, ignore). My favorite song is not the main release, "When You Were Young." Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, but I tend to find deeper cuts to like on albums (that's just me, I guess).

The song "Bones" is the one I tend to gravitate to most. Maybe it's the way the horns are mixed into the main chorus ... or maybe it's the words themselves (obviously, talking about hot passionate "kanoodling"), or maybe it's the infectious hooks ... probably it's a combination of all of these. If you've skipped over this song, maybe you should give it another try. I think you'll see what I mean.
