Give the Killers considerable credit for this: they never have tossed off their Christmas tunes, and they’ve written a considerable amount of them since 2006. Every year between 2006 and 2011’s (Red) Christmas EP, the group have had a new holiday single to support the Project Red charity, every one of them except 2011’s “The Cowboy’s Christmas Ball” an original. True, most of these songs don’t necessarily feel Christmasy, at least in the conventional sense — apart from “Don’t Shoot Me Santa,” there are no sleigh bells and very few joyous choruses, they all feel like the Killers, a group who proudly prefers bombast to subtlety. After all, why invite only Neil Tennant in for a duet when you can also have Elton John? That over-the-top thinking might not produce sounds that are strictly Christmasy, but the extravagance is suited for the season.
Best Band in the world
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR 5 YEARS FOR A KILLERS COMEBACK!!
it was worth the wait!
thank u brandon flowers and the rest of the fella's for giving me this gift aound my favourite time of the year!
(cowboy's christmas ball and dont shot me santa are my favs)
Good to have you back guys!
The new one sounds too much like Brandon's new album... It doesn't really sound... "Killery". Gotta say though boots is in my top two of modern Christmas songs, equaled only by Coldplay's "Christmas lights"!
