Top Ten Songs By The Killers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Losing Touch Losing Touch

I love this song, makes me think a lot of my entire life, the intro is the best intro ever and is the best song ever

Intro was amazing and musical genius, how the heck did this manage to be the twenty first out of 30?!

Best song in the new album. Killers rule

22 Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet

This song is really good. It's relaxing and shouldn't be rated at 34 but more around 1-5, it's just not known because it's in the album sawdust which not many people listen to.

Really underrated song, should be at least in the top 10. The lyrics are amazing.

This one few rare times when the cover is better than the original.

This song is 28 because it was a cover, not much change from dire straights version and the killers

23 I Can't Stay I Can't Stay

This song never fails to chill me out and it's a prime example of the range in style that The Killers are capable of playing. Brandon Flower's voice is just so smooth it's hard to resist this song

The only reason this song is not in the top 3 is because it's so unknown. It is amazing though, it made me fall in love with The Killers. Brandons and Lou Reeds voices blend in very well together. Go listen to it, NOW! (and watch the video clip. And give me your sneakers. )

This song is just simply beautiful. The only reason it is so far down on the list is because it was released as part of their less known album sawdust.

Highly underrated Killers song and by far their best, the religious undertones, government orientated fear and childhood nostalgia make for one of the best songs of the 2000s.


Best Killers song ever. Period

25 Here with Me Here with Me

How is this song so low in the list?
One of the most meaningful songs by the killers and a beautiful melody to go with it!
Definitely deserves to be in the top 10

This song introduced me to The Killers, in a book I was reading (when I was yours, samantha towle) and it is beautiful. Since my discovery of this song I've heard a lot of their music but nothing touches me quite like this song. Sweet, mellow and relatable, Here With Me will always be number 1 on my list.

This one must be on the top 10. Excellent lyrics and song overall. Unexpectedly underrated.

My favorite off the album

26 Be Still Be Still

GREAT SONG! Very emotional. Very good vocals. Great job Killers! Battle born is a good album. At first I didn't like it but now that I've listened to it for a second time and REALLY listened to it instead of having it in the backround. I like it.

One of the best ballads I've ever heard!

So atmospheric and so beautiful. Makes me so happy and so sad every time

Such a great song, really chill and always calms me down

On first listen I thought this song was simply about taking his girl out to have sex, but after a couple of listens, I realised it was actually linked to 'jenny was a friend of mine' and tells the story of him murdering his cheating girlfriend. Brilliant!

BEST SONG BY THE KILLERS. I love all of their songs but this is really their best, I listen to it once everyday if not more

This is an incredible underrated song! One of the Best!

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10? It's amazing! Especially the end. - Wolftail

28 Uncle Jonny Uncle Jonny

Hey guys I gotta agree Mr Brightside is really great but I just had to vote for uncle jonny because I really thought it'd be in the top five! Seriously give it a try because it's so good! From the opening melody to the lyrics that catch your attention///"when everybody else refrained my uncle Jonny did cocaine"... Man this is such a good song!

29 Leave the Bourbon On the Shelf Leave the Bourbon On the Shelf

One of my favourites! with that guitar riff that really makes me move along.

Um this is the best song from the whole murder trilogy?

In between this and Believe me Natalie

30 The Way It Was The Way It Was

Fantastic song, best one on battle born!

When Brandon's voice reaches the climax of the song when he sings "darling, darling" it is one of the most beautiful moments in music I have ever heard. His voice is so full of emotion.

The most underrated song by them

The best in my opinion

31 Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll

My favourite Killers song. It's just perfect from start to finish. I just want to belt the lyrics whenever I hear it. Oh and can someone from the website change the sample to the Hot Fuss version, it's miles better.

Always been my favourite Killer's song! Don't know what it is about it but I used to listen to it every night before I went to sleep when I was 15 and recently put Hot Fuss onto my new iTunes and it still gives me the same feelings. - AisPower

Everything about this song is right. The Killers have a knack for starting out slow and simple in a song and building into a creative alternative anthem, and they perfected that method of songmaking with "Glamorous Indie Rock and Roll. " When people ask what my favorite Killers song is I just say "it's indie rock and roll for me. "

Doesn't really make sense but reminds us of Mario cart. If u know what we mean?

32 Battle Born Battle Born

Great song, highly under-rated, sounds great live. Give it a listen

What a terrific song, with so much depth. This song needs to be ranked higher. The only reason it should be this low is if nobody has listened to it.

This should be 2012 onwards signature Killers sound...this is what they have evolved into - total awesomeness!

This is my favourite song, it's really great song

I know it is by the killers and I think its pretty spectacular.

Great song, very catchy lyrics and melody. Love the piano!

Great vocals and melody

35 Sweet Talk Sweet Talk

This is one of the most wonderful songs ever. No lie. I love all of the killers songs on this list BUT this is really such a gem! People NEED to discover it! The honesty and purity of the lyrics is just beautiful. "you know it hurts sometimes. You know its gonna bleed sometime" beautiful.

Sure most of The Killers songs tend to inspire hope, but this one just seems so earnest and true in its attempt. That's not to say that the others fall flat, but you can't help but make an emotional connection to this song on the first listen, especially when Brandon sings hold on

IT BRILLIANT. I seriously don't know why its not on the list but "dont shoot me santa" is, ridiculous. sweet talk has the band playing top notch while brandon executes great vocals. - tkm

Heartfelt and raw. Wonderful ending that rushes in on a tidal wave of emotional abandon. Just beautiful. Soul to soul kind of stuff that's just so intimate.

36 Flesh and Bone Flesh and Bone

While I do think a lot of the killers songs are really great, this is the one that I can listen to over and over again. The vocals, the lyrics, it all just meshes together perfectly.

Like a dark horse running in a fantasy

37 Neon Tiger Neon Tiger

How this is ONLY number 29 is a mystery to me. This song is absolutely fantastic and makes me shiver whenever I listen to it on my iPod.
"Run Neon Tiger, there's a lot on your mind" - Got so much love for the Killers, bring this song up to at least the top 10 people! It is so underrated! Come on!

Love this song to. Can not believe it has gone down to 55. Vote please it really deserves to go if not to te top ten at least to the top twenty. Please it's a great song!

Not their best song but I cannot be number 67 it really gives me the chills and among my favorite songs. Should be in top 15

Run neon tiger run!

38 Bling (Confession of a King) Bling (Confession of a King)

The lyrics "Stand up! Poor and tired, but more than this" have intense significance to me.

What the hell?! How is this song not higher?
This is an awesome song, so much feeling and power!
Love listening to it more than any of the others.

Such a meaningful piece of music, pretty well executed. The Killers are simply the bes
