Released in 2008 as the lead single from their third studio album, "Day & Age," "Human" is an anthemic celebration of human imperfection. Frontman Brandon Flowers' soaring vocals, accompanied by the band's signature synth hooks and upbeat drum patterns, make for an irresistible combination. The song's success is evident – it peaked at number 3 on the UK Singles chart and has since gained over 700 million views on Youtube.
The song's video is another highlight, featuring Flowers standing in a desert with tribal dancers and astronauts, representing the human duality of nature and technology. The irony of the video is that despite the song's title, it seems that The Killers are the ones who are more robotic than human. However, that's what makes the song so engaging, as it speaks to the contradictory nature of our humanity.
