Released: June 2004
The Killers truly touch greatness on this stirring, huge-hooked, last-song-of-the-night monster. The final refrain of “I got soul but I’m not a soldier” is a meaningless phrase when you think about it, but when you’re yelling it in a field along with thousands of people while your seventh pill of the night is threatening to change your sex, it can feel pretty powerful. It manages to pull off that early U2 trick of being both a misty-eyed call of romantic defiance, and a song you can bounce around to with your mates.
