There are quite a few songs by The Killers that get me earwormed.  This is one of them!!  For the past few days I’ve had the line “don’t you put me on the back burner, you know you gotta help me out”  STUCK IN MY HEAD LIKE SUPERGLUE!  I attribute their stickiness factor to a few things:

1) Brandon Flowers‘ voice.  It’s pretty great.  Easy to listen to, nice wide range, interesting tambre.

2) Their melodies.  They strike the perfect balance between repetition and randomness.

3) The lyrics.  They are clever, catchy, punny (in a good way), and altogether very creative.

Do you love The Killers?  What are some of the songs (Killers or not) that always get stuck in your head?
