music: rufus wainwright

Hallelujah
  • she tied you to a kitchen chair, she broke your throne and she cut your hair, and from your lips she drew the hallelujah: aries, leo, sagittarius
  • i've seen your flag on the marbel arch, love is not a victory march, it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah: taurus, virgo, capricorn
  • and remember when i moved in you, the holy dark was moving too, and every breath we drew was hallelujah: gemini, libra, aquarius
  • and it's not a cry you can hear at night, it's not somebody who's seen the light, it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah: cancer, scorpio, pisces
What do other musicians think of Brandon Flowers?
  • Rufus Wainwright: I spent one night with him at a bar, swooning over him along with everybody else. He is so sexy yet so unhappy and also somewhat sane and crazy at the same time. I haven’t met anyone who quite fits the Brando (Marlon) mould as much as he does. There’s this dark, moody, restless . . . figure that’s sucking up all the energy out of the room. Thanks a lot, thanks a lot for not sleeping with me so I can write a song about you.
  • Calvin Harris: Brandon Flowers is hot.
  • Elton John: They’re (The Killers) absolutely brilliant, and their lead singer is one of the sexiest men on the planet.(...) I befriended Brandon very early in The Killers’ career. He has three beautiful children that my kids play with whenever I go to Vegas. Five boys playing together. And I just love Brandon, he loves all different sorts of music.
  • Brendon Urie - Panic! at the Disco: We got thrown into the beef with the Killers’ Brandon Flowers out of nowhere. We had no beef with them. Pete (Wentz)and Brandon threw us into that, man! That was unfair, I love both of them. I love The Killers. Any time I listen to The Killers I hear a bit of Bruce Springsteen, especially now, I think they've gotten more and more Americana rock, which I love. Their take on Vegas is totally unique as well, they've got the desert and it's almost like a pure, pure take on it.
  • Dallon Weekes - Panic! at the Disco: Brother Flowers is a great singer and a songwriter. I'm a fan.
  • Kenneth Harris - Panic! at the Disco: I love Brandon Flowers. His new solo album (The Desired Effect) is unbelievable.
  • Ricky Wilson - Kaiser Chiefs: I love that you know the album by what Brandon’s wearing. ‘Oh, it’s the moustache album, it’s the feathers album’. He’s quite Elton John about it. How can one man who’s so recognisable look so different?
  • Isaac Slade - The Fray: Whatever faith he holds, its just embodied in his songs … we try to do that. (Isaac referenced Brandon, who is Mormon but does not directly express his beliefs in his music).
  • Kylie Minogue: Oh Brandon Flowers!(who she would most like to work with). It's not on the cards but I just think he's amazing. It could work well. I don't think he knows I've even said that, but I'd really love to.
  • Ryan Tedder - OneRepublic: Brandon Flowers is a very pensive, interesting man and we’re very opposite in the way we communicate. With The Killers, we’re still in the process [of making the album] and I can’t speak as to their timing or anything. But I love what we’ve started immensely, obsessively even. It sounds 100% like them and nothing like me. The Killers self-produce, by the way.

Tc Song~~

 Lyrics: 
There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then

He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
But never could I tell it was him
Oh, I wish I could tell him –
Oh, I wish I could have told him

I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man

All this having been said,
I married an executive company head
All this having been done, a Turner - I own one
Here I am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing,
Thinking of the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then
No, never have I loved any other man
