A Great driving beat, gets to you and brings you along in this journey into "human" behavior. If you don't know or understand the lyrics, I can't help you. It goes much deeper than the surface.

The question is (of course) "Are we human or ...".

The first time I really listened to the song, (a) I played it about ten times in a row, (b) every time I played it I could hardly keep from weeping, and (c) I immediately thought of Jackson Brown's "For A Dancer". Please listen to that song in conjunction with this one (the version on the album Western Wall by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris blows me away).

So, the answer. When we are born, we are human. When we die we are dancer. And in between we may be either, both, or neither, depending on who we are, what we have become.

I've always been a huge fan of The Killers, but Human is the song that really made me love them. It's incredible song, with insightful and meaningful lyrics. We need more songs like these in modern music

"Human" is the latest single release from The Killers. The song has a driving beat, a melody with a retro-70s feel, and lyrics that have several layers of meaning. Listening to the song for the first time a person might get the impression that "Human" is a fun song with a nonsensical melody that's got a great rhythm to dance to. However, there is much more to the song and it touches closer to the soul than a typical pop song. Not only that, but the chorus of the song was inspired by a quote from Hunter S. Thompson. Not bad for a four-minute ditty recorded in one night.

I am 67. This is how I felt in high school, and much less - but still- now.
I listened to other songs and couldn't relate.

Again The Killers have a great sound. Their songs are easy to move to the beat (cause they have a great beat!) and you can enjoy the music and the lyrics. Sure, not quite sure about the "are we human, or are we dancer" Cause well WHY singlure "dancer"?? Never got that but I don't look "into" the meanings of the songs - it my annoy me and I'd have to stop listening. DON'T STOP LISTENING! Enjoy this one on repeat a few times too.

Just a download, not CD quality. Clearly missing information from what you'd get on a CD. Luckily, it's a great song, which is why I bought it.
