“He’s underneath the window… She’s singing, 
“Hey la, my boyfriend’s back..”

 Dire Straits Cover by The Killers  

Live from Abbey Road 

And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real.
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

One of the Greatest Covers I’ve Ever Heard. Justice Served, Boys!

The Killers: An Update…. Information Source: socialbutterflies.wordpress.com <Thank You!>

In a recent interview with the Australian Associated Press, The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning said that the Vegas glam-rockers’ Feb. 21 show in Melbourne will be their last—for a while, at least.

The news doesn’t come as such a surprise, as the Killers have been touring and recording virtually non-stop since they first started catching ears with “Somebody Told Me” in 2004. But, in the context of rumors that singer Brandon Flowers wants to go solo, it looks increasingly likely that “break” in this case might actually be short for “break-up.”

Don’t go getting all upset on me now, though, about a rumored possibility of a permanent dismembering of this fantastic band, as it seems they have confirmed a performance for November 12-13, 2011, and are still mapping out performances together.

We may see some solo work of Keuning released, however, and of this, I’m stoked!

The November gig where The Killers will be co-headlining is the Citrus Bowl Inaugural Orlando Calling Festive Celebration.as part of an impressive collection of performers (including the Raconteurs, Pete Yorn, Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band and the Pixies) at the Citrus Bowl Inaugural Orlando Calling Festive Celebration.

Thanks for the tip.. World Music News!

I need those eyes to tide me over
I’ll take your picture when I go

It gives me strength and gives me patience
But I’ll never let you know

I got nothing on you baby
But I always said I try

Let me show you how much I care
Cause sometimes it gets hard
And don’t she know

Don’t give the ghost up

just clench your fist
You should have known by now

you were on my list

The Killers

The Killers are definitely one of my all time top five.  The lyrics of this little ditty brought a few sappy tears to my eyes earlier. I’ve only recently discovered that as my life has moved along its path, I’ve always been able to find a disturbingly reliable state of contentment and sweet solace in the simplicity of loneliness… surrounded by self-fabricated walls of smoke, mirrors and illusions of self-defense.

There is no risk within loneliness, no investment that your heart has to trust someone else with.  I have spent twenty (something) years comforted by disarray, with the safety that I somehow skewed from isolation, the clutching power of self preservation.  In regard to love, I had it all figured out…

Until I stumbled upon true love for the first time, that is.  I know now that in regard to love, I didn’t know a single thing to be true.  My self-preservation imploded with the introduction of you.     (I’m so glad)
