she liked Imaginary Men best of all

Candy Apple Red Dresses and Cherry Ice Cream Smiles


So you know I love Duran Duran, and I obviously love The Killers so of course I lost my shit when I first saw every time I watch this video:

Which is how how this absolutely priceless (to me) picture comes from, courtesy of the lovely Felicity (thanks Foxy!):

I mean, seriously – my Inner 14 Year Old John Taylor Obsessive and my Current “Grown-up” Brandon Flowers Obsessive is having a total Fangirlie meltdown over this picture!! (OMG look!! It’s John!! And Brandon!! And they’re standing next to each other like BFFs and OHMYGOD SQUEEEEE!!!!!)

To top it off, today Duran drummer Roger Taylor (who is aging SO WELL!):


Gave this interview to the Dallas Observer in which he said:

We’re all big fans of The Killers

Who are the ONLY contemporary band mentioned as a “current influence”! Fuck Yeah Roger Taylor!!!

Now if The Killers would continue to Make My Life in Covers complete, and do Hungry Like the Wolf, I could die a happy woman 😉

  1. Seriously where is this damn covers album?!?!

    Look at Bran in that photo “Hee hee, I’m posing with Duran Duran! My life is awesome! Guys, I’m totally down for another gig whenever you need me. I hear there’s this fangirl who would love to see more of us perform together!”

    And Roger’s quote is like Larry’s about Ronnie being a great drummer. Aw, everyone loves The Killers 🙂

  2. ps. You KNOW Brandon would be up for that!!

  3. Yay me! The Killers should just do a Duran Duran covers album!!
