Songfacts®:

  • This is the oldest song that made it onto the The Desired Effect album. Brandon Flowers penned it when he was touring his 2010 solo record Flamingo. When the Killers frontman played the demo to his producer, Ariel Rechtshaid, he heard something in it that Flowers had yet to capture. The singer told NME: "He took it to 2020, or where ever he took it too, rather than being stuck in 1978 where I had it."
