The Killers–When You Were Young

This is for the guy that killed this song at karaoke last night.  You don’t get a lot of rock songs about toxic fantasies of young girls, so I guess congratulations to The Killers for stepping in and filling that void.  But really, When You Were Young is a brilliant, sing-at-the-top-of-your-lungs-while-drunk, desert epic.  Mostly carried by Brandon Flowers’ totally committed, over-the-top performance, the song is a soaring feet of bizarro nostalgia.
