A mio avviso questo è uno dei brani più belli degli ultimi 10 anni, una uptempo energica e coinvolgente che non stanca nemmeno dopo centinaia di ascolti. Sto parlando di “Mr. Brightside”, brano del 2004 rilasciato come secondo singolo all’album di debutto dei Killers. Quel disco era veramente notevole e conteneva pezzi di tutto rispetto a partire dal lead single “Somebody Told Me”. A dire la verità i risultati del brano sono stati buoni ma non eccezionali, personalmente ritengo che per le caratteristiche della canzone la posizione numero 40 della classifica singoli italiani sia davvero scarsa, ad ogni modo è arrivato in Top 10 sia in America che nel Regno Unito.

Accompagnata da un video particolare ed originale “Mr. Brightside” e uno dei miei pezzi preferiti di sempre, soprattutto perchè mi ricorda dei bellissimi momenti. Voi che ne dite ?

I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta 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 its 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’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta 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 its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibi
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…
