Hey fella, I happen to like that line.

ETA, also it seems the wink I had placed at the end of my original post has disappeared...I must've accidentally erased it somehow, but I promise it was there at first.

Hey, I acknowledged that it was at least pseudo-clever.

You don't look a bit like Jesus, LeMeL. And you've got soul but you're not a soldier.

Yeah, The Killers essentially don't know how to make music without cringe worthy lines in their songs.

Seriously, the song is growing on me a bit. Sure, it's cheesy, but all of their music is to an extent. At first, it came across as the band forcing an epic first single, but now that I've stopped caring about that, the song's quality is seeping through a bit.

I believe I thought 'When You Were Young' was hands down one of the worst songs lyrically I'd heard in my life the first few times I heard it. Now I like it. The Killers just seem to be that way. Lame, yet catchy.

Yeah, I don't listen to The Killers for their thought-provoking lyrics.

Anyone seen the video for Human yet? I just watched it, and The Killers have continued the tradition of TERRIBLE music videos

And I have now seen the feather boa...is this the new mustache?

I haven't seen the video but I've heard 'Human' on the radio a few times recently and I gotta say I kinda dig it. The chorus is mucho catchy. And did we ever figure out if it's "dancers" or "denser" or "dancer"???

There's a fairly jank version of the video up on youtube. But it's available for purchase on iTunes. Seriously the vid is bad:
