I ripped it from their website. The sound quality isn't the best, but it's listenable. Either way, good song

It actually does remind me of Springsteen, especially the end. Never expected that.

To me the music sounds like The Killers, like it could've been off of Hot Fuss, BUT with very Springsteen touches here and there. That quick break towards the end is pure "Born To Run"!

And again, I stand by my earlier post that the lyrics are VERY Springsteen-esque!

Good song, fun, driving, pulsing tempo, but I'm not sure it really TOPS or goes beyond Hot Fuss all that much. We'll have to wait and see how the other songs play out and if they advance The Killers sound any.

Didn't like it..but I didn't care for them before..I was just curious...hmmm..there's a slight Springsteenish sound but not much...I don't hear Springsteeish lyrics either . It just sounds like plain old Killers to me.

I remember something about Bono stating that the 4 of them had the chemistry to be the biggest rock band in the world . . . to be the next Beatles or Stones.

And look what came of those statements.
Yeah but U2 is good, we've already seen that Killers suck.

I don't know what "we" you're talking about, because I certainly don't think The Killers suck!

Eh. It's okay, I guess.

Certainly hope it isn't one of the better songs off the new album.

It's a very catchy song, but completely Springsteen in almost every possible way. If they acknowledge this, and the album is some sort of Springsteen tribute, then fine. If not, they'll really have trouble earning respect as a band pushing the musical envelope.

Not a huge Killers fan, but heard the new song today on the radio and it wasn't that bad.

This is an excellent rock song, and despite whatever naysayers say, Brandon Flowers is the real deal.

Think about how distressed and disturbed the whole world is and why we might need a dose of such blind optimism to take us back to the light.

I'll certainly buy the album when it comes out.

When that first little clip came out, I know I didn't express much interest in the song. Now that I've heard the entire thing multiple times, I've grown to love it. I understand the Springsteen references they've been making after hearing the vocal melody of the verses and the delivery. Like Fitz said earlier, I hear a lot of "Born To Run" in parts too.

I'm really excited about Sam's Town now.
