Song of the Week

This one is on time because I have actually had a song in my head the past couple of days. I was playing Rock Band 2 the other night, and I played a song that reminded me of a trip that I took to New York City a few years back (January 2005) when Kathy sang at Carnegie Hall. I drove down from here and met my family in the city and stayed for a few nights. On Monday, my younger sisters, Stef and Jen, went to watch TRL. While at TRL, they saw the killers perform. They sang a song called “Mr. Brightside,” which, for whatever reason, became Jen’s ring tone on her phone whenever I would call. It is a decent song, and the lyrics are below. There is also a special treat at the bottom. Enjoy!

Song: Mr. Brightside
Album: Hot Fuss
Artist: The Killers

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
Now my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress, now
Let me go

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

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
(It was only a kiss)
It was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head
But she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go

I just can’t look
It’s killing me
And taking control

Jealousy
Turning saints into the sea
Swimming 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

I never
I never
I never
I never
I never

See if you see Stef or Jen in the crowd.
