The Killers - When You Were Young

Today's is another old one, from modern classic 'Sam's Town.' When You Were Young was the first single from the album, and it was a deserved instant hit with Killer's fans. With it's old school American rock feel tinged with the modernity the Killers bring to every piece of music they make, When You Were Young is truly a song for the ages. It's this kind of sound Brandon Flowers seemed to return to on his solo album, but nothing can ever quite match 'Sam's Town.' The refrain 'He doesn't look a thing like Jesus, but he talks like a gentleman' is known to almost everyone worth knowing, and if you don't know it, welcome to your new addiction.
