Cleo's Song o' the Week

I am gonna start showcasing a song I love once a week. There are no rules. I will do what I want. I gotta start it off with one of the best songs EVER. Period. Chops ain't gonna like it prolly, but we all know that I don't care about that. This is a kick @$$ song. It also happens to be on, in my opinion, one of the most UNDERRATEED albums in the history of music. How can anyone not enjoy this song? Just try not to tap your foot.... I dare ya.

I've been tryin' hard to do what's right....



Listen to the sound of the world and watch it turn but shake a little....Sometimes I'm nervous when I talk I shake a little.... Sometimes I hate the line I walk.


I never did get along with everybody else....

The circus and the crew, well they're just passin through, makin' sure that merry still goes round....

Well, it definitely sounds like the Killers.. so... yeah. Although..

Now Adams taking bombs
And hes stuck on his mom
Because that bitch keeps trying to make him pray
He's with the hippie in the park coming over the dark
Just trying to get some of that little girl play

"Little girl play"?

That's a little disturbing.

I just want to show you what I know and catch you when the current lets you go. That's my favorite lyric. In case you were wondering.

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART!

This is one of my very favourite most adored Killers songs. It flows, it runs, it's frantic, it's anthemic and mad and captivating and urgent. It's a rant and a rave.

Or should I get along with myself
I never did get along with everybody else
I've been trying hard to do whats right
But you know I could stay here all night
And watch the clouds fall from the sky
Because this river is wild
God Speed you boy

oh god it's all good. thanks for sharing the love.

ps Ginger I tried top pick a fave lyric but I cant. from the advise to the son to run, to the circus and the crew just passing tyhrouhg...wow.

You know Captian... I read an interview with Brandon concerning the Sam's Town album... In it he was asked about the songs and what they meant, that kind of thing.... he said that the people who love it


THIS RIVER IS WILD
"It's a strange one. Some people already hate it; some people like it, but the ones who love it are diehard. I love it! If ever there's been a musical journey this is it. When I listen to it I don't want it to end. Each chorus is different, that's untypical of us, so it's our shot at doing something different. This is also the most literal song here. I was born in Las Vegas but I grew up in a small town in Utah called Nephi, and the whole idea of escaping it and the excitement of that prospect is all captured on this."

Dude. I heart him. a lot.
