A Great Big Sled - Single

Warning: this song takes about four listens until you really get into it, like most other Killers songs. The first time I heard it I didn't know quite what to make of it, but now I'm addicted and can't stop listening! And keep in mind that I am Jewish, haha. It's been constantly stuck in my head, but I'm sure as hell not complaining. It's such a happy and cute song- just really fun. Especially the chorus- it makes me want to sing along out loud. My favorite part is when Brandon and the girl sing at the same time- a great climax for an awesome song. Plus it's not overly cheesy like other Christmas songs- although, of course, it does have just enough cheese factor to officially qualify as one ;). It's a perfect Christmas song with an edge, and the money goes to charity, so how can you go wrong? And actually I read that 100% of the money that both iTunes and the Killers make will go to the RED Campaign so I don't know why iTunes wrote "a portion". Probably because of tax. But anyway my overall message is that you should buy it, you won't regret it!
Tis The Season!
This song is great! It shows the world that the Killers aren't just some cocky band like everyone thinks they are. They're people just like us, and even they can get in the holiday spirit. Some of the money goes to the RED campaign, so not only do you get an awesome Killer's song, but you're also helping a good cause!
An original Christmas Song from The Killers. Excellent! Buy this NOW!
Bottom line...if you are a Killers fan, buy this single NOW. What are you waiting for? If you are not really a Killers fan, then give this a listen first. I think you might like it. Finally, a contemporary band has come up with an all new and original song for the holidays. It's about time. I'm so tired of rehashed Christmas song covers. I give The Killers credit for trying to do something different. "A Great Big Sled" is a song that can grow on you the more you listen. Hopefully, it will evolve into another Christmas classic that we hear year after year like Band Aid's "Do they know it's Christmas?" or Wham's "Last Christmas. For $.99, you can't go wrong. Besides, it's for charity.
