"Mr. Brightside" by The Killers

Today's birthday boy is Brandon Flowers, extremely cute lead singer of the Las Vegas-based rock duo The Killers; Mr. Brightside was the band's second single from their 2004 debut album Hot Fuss, following hot on the heels of Somebody Told Me.

In all there were three videos made for this song; this is the second of them. Starring Eric Roberts and Izabella Miko in an homage to Moulin Rouge!, it was directed by Sophie Muller, who we will remember has long had considerable artistic success collaborating with Annie Lennox - in both her solo work and with Eurythmics - and here strikes gold again with her evocation of a Belle Epoque bordello.
