T-Tunes...


Brandon Flowers & his 'stache...
As much of a music lover that I am, I realize that I hardly ever do any music posts!!! Tisk-tisk on GirleeCat for this!!! So guess what we have this fine Friday evening, folks?? That's right, a little snippet from my T-Tunes for ye!!  This here is a track off of an album I've been OBSESSED with and have been listening to practically non-stop in my car for like almost 2 months now. It's a song called "Jacksonville" off of Brandon Flowers' solo album, Flamingo. Who's Brandon Flowers and why is he singing about stank-ass Jacksonville (no offence to anyone from Jacksonville:) you ask?? Brandon Flowers, or B-Flowers as I like to call him, is the lead singer of the Killers who decided to go solo last year for "Reasons Unknown"... ok, I know that was cheezy.
Anywho, I love this track, "Jacksonville." It's thick, dark and sexy like the flicker of candlelight in dark brown eyes. And the great thing is that it's the best song on the album that was never even supposed to be on the album cuz it's a bonus track!! In fact, I think some presses of Flamingo don't even have it one there! Nevermind that it's named after the largest city in Florida, which was named after Andrew Jackson (thank you Wikipedia). And nevermind that there's no official video clip for it so I have no choice but to post the least cheezy youtube vid of it I could find. This song is DOPE.
Gothed-out macarena beat with some Johnny Cash on E stylings toward the end...yeah, B-Flowers is workin it out tight with this one...check it out:
