Coloring Club Plus — 11/30/19

Nov 30

I picked this up from the library today and got right to listening. I put the first disc in the player and it wouldn’t play, so I put the second disc in. Only now that I’m looking up info on the set that I know that the first disc is the DVD of the concert. Most cool. Will be watching that soon.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall is a live album and DVD by American rock band The Killers. It was released on November 10, 2009 in the UK, Canada and the US. The album is pulled from two nights the band performed at the Royal Albert Hall in July 2009, and also includes footage from festival dates the band headlined during the middle months of 2009. A CD of live material accompanies the DVD as part of the package. The artwork resembles the artwork for the band’s third studio album, Day & Age, and was designed by artist Paul Normansell.

Brandon Flowers said the decision to film the band’s first live DVD at the Royal Albert Hall was because “London’s always been very good to us. They opened their arms to us before anybody else did. And Royal Albert Hall is a very iconic and special place. I grew up watching Morrissey videos that he had filmed there. So it was really exciting to be a part of it.”

Live from the Royal Albert Hall was nominated for Best DVD at the 2010 NME Awards.

Smile Like You Mean It” is a song by American rock band the Killers, written by lead vocalist Brandon Flowers and bassist Mark Stoermer. Originally released as a B-side of “Mr. Brightside” in September 2003, it is featured on their debut studio album Hot Fuss (2004). I wrote about Hot Fuss in another post, which you can read about here. It was the third single from the album released in the United States and the fourth in the United Kingdom, reaching number 15 on the Billboard U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart and number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. It also received substantial radio airplay in Australia, where it was ranked number 39 on Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2004.

I’m including two videos, the produced/directed one and the live one from Albert Hall.

Save some face, you know you’ve only got one
Change your ways while you’re young
Boy, one day you’ll be a man
Oh girl, he’ll help you understand

Smile like you mean it
Smile like you mean it

Looking back at sunsets on the East side
We lost track of the time
Dreams aren’t what they used to be
Some things sat by so carelessly

Smile like you mean it
Smile like you mean it

And someone is calling my name
From the back of the restaurant
And someone is playing a game
In the house that I grew up in
And someone will drive her around
Down the same streets that I did
On the same streets that I did

Smile like you mean it
Smile like you mean it
Smile like you mean it
Smile like you mean it

Oh no, oh no no no
Oh no, oh no no no
Songwriters: Brandon Flowers / Mark August Stoermer
