Shuffle Song Of The Day (8/20/18): “Smile Like You Mean It” By The Killers

“Smile Like You Mean It” is a song by The Killers from their 2004 debut album Hot Fuss. I feel like this is a relatively forgotten debut album considering how many consecutive radio hits are on it. Songs 2-5 are as follows: “Mr. Brightside”, “Smile Like You Mean It”, “Somebody Told Me”, and “All These Things That I’ve Done”. Wow, just wow. Most albums, especially debut albums, can only hope for 1 or maybe 2 songs to make it to the mainstream market, but not Hot Fuss. Not only did it contain 4 bangers, it had them all in a row. Getting back to the song at hand, complete power move by The Killers to release a music video for this song 12 years later. I’m as lazy as they come, but I feel like that move brings a whole new meaning to the term. Unless ofcourse it was just a mistake, and the top comment on the YouTube video sums up that potential scenario perfectly.


LYRICS

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
