Day 3 of My Week with The Killers - Read My Mind

Day 3 of my week with The Killers and today its 'Read My Mind'.

'Read My Mind' was released in 2007. It was the third single from their second album 'Sam's Town' which was released in 2006.

This is another Killers style rock song - lots of synth, guitars and drums with Brandon Flowers on vocals. This one though, is very anthemic and big.

The video to this song is brilliant. It was shot in Tokyo and features an Oriental Elvis, the band dressed as Geisha's, and having fun on various random bicycles!! Its quite a funny video, clearly not really a serious video - just them enjoying themselves, with Flowers sporting a rather fetching moustache!

'Read My Mind' reached number 15 on the UK singles chart. Not their biggest hit, but not bad for the third single from an album!

This is such a lyrically great song. My favourite line comes near the end when Flowers sings "The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun when you read my mind". Such clever words, written by Flowers himself.

There we have it - Day 3 'Read my Mind'. Go have a listen and let me know what you think.
