Hot Fuss is the debut album by the American rock band The Killers, released on June 7, 2004, in the United Kingdom and on June 15, 2004, in the United States. The album is mostly influenced by new wave music and post-punk. Hot Fuss produced several commercially and critically successful singles: “Mr. Brightside”, “Somebody Told Me”, “All These Things That I’ve Done” and “Smile Like You Mean It”.

The lyrics to Andy You’re a Star are the subject of controversy. Some argue that it’s about a gay relationship between a guy and a high school football player. Singer Brandon Flowers said it is a song about a stalker and the object of his obsession. I can see it also as the football player being oblivious of the crush the guy has on him. Regardless, this song is achingly beautiful. I love the way Brandon saturates his voice with anguish and longing.

One, two

On the field I remember you were incredible
Hey, shut up, hey, shut up, yeah
On the field I remember you were incredible
Hey, shut up, hey, shut up, yeah
On the match with the boys, you think you’re alone
With the pain that you drain from love
In a car with a girl, promise me she’s not your world
‘Cause Andy, you’re a star
Get down, hey

Leave your number on the locker and I’ll give you a call
Hey, shut up, hey, shut up, yeah
Leave your legacy in gold on the plaques that line the hall
Hey, shut up, hey, shut up, yeah
On the streets, such a sweet face jumping in town
In the staffroom, the verdict is in
In a car with a girl, promise me she’s not your world

‘Cause Andy, you’re a star
In nobody’s eyes but mine
Andy, you’re a star
In nobody’s eyes but mine
Andy, you’re a star
In nobody’s eyes
In nobody’s eyes but mine

Songwriters: Brandon Flowers / Dave Brent Keuning / Mark August Stoermer / Ronnie Jr. Vannucci

  1. How that coloring had to take a long time! Great detail. I bought that CD when it came out and really liked it- but haven’t kept up with The Killers since..
