Staff Web Pick of the Week:
The Killers’ “Human” video
We still haven’t quite figured out how to translate those lyrics. Meanwhile, if its new video is any indication, “Human” is all about how it feels to…er…rock out in a lonely Southwestern desert for an audience composed of steep mesas and a snow leopard. Hey, when the song is this much fun, who cares what it all means?
