"Mr. Brightside (Killers cover)" as written by Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer and Ronnie Jr. Vannucci....
I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

And I just can't look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I'm Mr Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his—chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

Cause I just can't look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I'm Mr Brightside

    General CommentMuch better than the orginal.
    I love the intro, even if the singer's breathing is annoying.
    And the techno-ish, electronica-ish melody distracts you from hearing the lyrics.

    I'm not really sure of the meaning of this song though.

    General CommentHe did pick a very popular song.. but its still great.. I definitely wouldn't call it "LAME!"

    It's always good to have alternative version of famous songs.

    I'm sure the Killer appreciate it, and if someone hears it they might check out his other songs, so everyone's happy.

    General Commentktlarney you're retarded. Band's do covers on popular songs all the damn time; I wanna Love You by The Maine, Umbrella by Scott Simmons, Umbrella by All Time low, Since U Been Gone by A Day To Remember, Crank Dat Cavalry Boy by I Set My Friends On Fire, Everywhere by Yellowcard etc. Playradioplay! isn't the only band doing it; and besides, it's fun to have a lot of versions of popular songs. Playradioplay! owns.

    General CommentIt's not lame it do a cover of a popular song, it would be deemed rather pointless to cover a song no one has ever heard wouldnt it? Plus if it's done well, theres no harm done and i personally think this version is amazing, it's so different but in a good way, though The Killers version will always be my favourite.
