My List

Album: Sam's Town (2006)

Songfacts®:

  • Killers frontman Brandon Flowers wrote this song for his wife Tana. He recalled the recording of the tune to NME: "I wanted people to believe it like I believe when I hear something I love. I want that on every song, but this one has a moment that you never know if it's going to happen again - we just got lucky. This is me. We didn't have many vocal tracks so this is the closest to what I sound like in the shower (laughs)."

    Flowers also paid tribute to Tana on "Hard Enough" from his 2010 self-titled solo album where he laments how hard it is to be away from her.
