It didn’t even occur to me that today was the 5th birthday of Day & Age until I saw the other posts on Tumblr. Let’s reminisce. Day & Age was the first The Killers album that I bought. I came to know songs like Human and Joyride before I’d even heard of Mr. Brightside or When You Were Young. I remember the first time I heard The Killers. They were performing Spaceman on Jay Leno. They gave a bizarre first impression. Here was this clean-cut young fellow in a blazer with feather epaulettes, and with him were three guys who looked like hippies. And they were playing this song that upon first listen apparently was about being abducted by aliens. Little did I know at that moment that it was only a matter of time before that band would become my passion/obsession. My how we’ve grown.
