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
I just can’t look, it’s 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

Mr. Brightside” is the first single released by American rock band the Killers.[3] It was released as the band’s debut single and is featured on their debut studio album Hot Fuss (2004). Written by band members Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning, this was one of the first songs the Killers ever wrote.[4] Two music videos were made for the song: the first, which is in black-and-white, features the band performing in an empty room. The second, filmed for the re-release, is based on the 2001 film Moulin Rouge!.

The song was originally released on September 29, 2003 and achieved minor success. It became more popular upon its re-release in 2004, peaking at number 10 in both the United States and the United Kingdom. It is The Killers’ best-selling song in the US, where it has sold over 3 million copies.[5] In the United Kingdom it is one of the top fifteen most downloaded rock tracks ever.[6]

“Mr. Brightside” was named “Song of the Decade” by UK radio stations Absolute Radio and XFM, and in April 2010 Last.fm revealed that it was the most listened to track since the launch of the online music service, with over 12.2 million plays.[7] In October 2010, it was voted ninth in the Greatest Guitar Riffs of the 21st Century so far by Total Guitar magazine.[8] Additionally, in 2010 Rolling Stone listed “Mr. Brightside” as the forty-eighth best song of the twenty-first century

Lyrically, “Mr. Brightside” depicts the jealousy and paranoia of a man who suspects his significant other is cheating on him. Guitarist Dave Keuning composed the song’s verses before meeting Flowers. Flowers then wrote lyrics and composed the chorus after hearing Keuning’s ideas. Flowers credits the speed of the song’s creation for the fact that the song only has one verse. He says “We went in and made demos pretty quickly after that, and it took a ton of time. That’s also why there’s not a second verse… I just didn’t have any other lines and it ended up sticking.”[10] Drummer Ronnie Vannucci is credited with creating the fast-paced drum beat in the first twenty-two seconds.[11] The “calling a cab” section of the song has both a musical and textual similarity to the middle section of the song “Queen Bitch” from David Bowie’s Hunky Dory album.[12]

“Mr. Brightside” was mixed for its inclusion on Hot Fuss by Mark Needham, along with business partners Braden Merrick and Jeff Saltzman. “Mr. Brightside” was first created as a reference mix in just over half an hour “on an 8 input console, with no automation” according to Needham. Despite several subsequent remixes, the members of the Killers preferred the original one, which then made it onto the record. In recording the vocal effects, Saltzman used Echo Farm, sticking with the default vocal effects setting. Needham describes it, saying it “overdrives the vocal a bit and sets an 84 ms delay.
