"A Crippling Blow" is the B-side to "Human"...and, in the UK, it's a bonus track on the Day & Age album

No Problem  8)

Spaceman has two B-sides...one is "Tidal Wave" (a good song) and "Four Winds" (a cover of the Bright Eyes' song)

These are the lyrics to "Four Winds"

Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe
There's people always dying trying to keep them alive
There are bodies decomposing in containers tonight
In an abandoned building where
A squatter's made a mural of a Mexican girl
With fifteen cans of spray paint in a chemical swirl
She's standing in the ashes at the end of the world
Four winds blowing through her hair

But when great Satan's gone, the w**** of Babylon
She just can't sustain the pressure where it's placed
She caves

The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qur'an is mute
If you burned them all together you'd be close to the truth still
They're poring over Sanskrit under Ivy League moons
While shadows lengthen in the sun
Cast on a school of meditation built to soften the times
And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds
It's knocking over fences, crossing property lines
Four winds cry until it comes

And it's the sum of man
Slouching towards Bethlehem
A heart just can't contain all of that empty space
It breaks, it breaks, it breaks

Well, I went back to my rented Cadillac and company jet
Like a newly orphaned refugee, retracing my steps
All the way to Cassadaga to commune with the dead
They said, "You'd better look alive"
And I was off to old Dakota where a genocide sleeps
In the black hills, the bad lands, the calloused east
I buried my ballast, I made my peace
Heard four winds leveling the pines

But when great Satan's gone, the w**** of Babylon
She just can't remain with all that outer space
She breaks, she breaks, she caves, she caves


I think this is new territory for The Killers...I've heard a 30 second clip of their "Four Winds" cover, and I think it sounds really great

 :D

I'm hoping their cover of "Four Winds" gets a physical release or a digital release..right now, it's just on the US Vinyl Single for Spaceman (I pre-ordered it 8) )

The Killers were talking about releasing a covers album..it may surface there!

Ronnie Vannucci (the drummer, and a damn good one if I do say so myself) said that each member would pick 3 songs for them to cover

I love Spaceman too!  8)

huh. I didn't know they covered a Bright Eyes song (bet it's awesome). I love Conor. His stuff is brilliant as well. I've hung out with him a couple of times and such. One of my good friends went to high school with Mr. CO.

I'm listening to A Dustland Fairytale now!  :)

You know, Change Your Mind is on my copy of Hot Fuss...it isn't on my copy of Sawdust!  :D Do you have an international version or something?
