18. The Killers: Somebody Told Me

Found on: Hot Fuss (2004)
Picked by: RN, TF, PA, SL

Unnecessarily intriguing chorus on this song. The obvious interpretation of "you had a boyfriend that looked like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year" is that the person in question had a female-to-male sex change. But it's also possible s/he was always a man and was just pulling the wool over Brandon's eyes back in February. Is that why they broke up after just a month? And is the "you" in the song a man or a woman? I'm assuming it's a man, because the person just changed genders, not the way s/he swings.


  1. I absolutely love this song. But I don't think the gender change is involved. I think it's about lesbianism or something. Brandon (or whoever's point of view) had a girlfriend, they broke up then that girl had a relationship with another girl (referred to as the 'you').
