I WANT YOU HERE WITH ME
One of my favorite bands The Killers has just released their second video clip from the Battle Born album, this time for the song “Here With Me.” Tim Burton directed the video, which was filmed in the seaside resort of Blackpool in Northwest England, and stars Winona Ryder as a mannequin. In a note on the band’s website, Tim Burton explained the inspiration behind the clip: “The first time I saw The Killers perform live was in Blackpool, UK shortly after completing work on our first collaboration, the music video for Bones,” the director wrote. “When I heard the song Here With Me I remembered seeing a wax figure of Winona in Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in Blackpool. The concept of the video is inspired by the 1935 film Mad Love, starring Peter Lorre, as well as the works of Mario Bava.”
I’ve seen this band LIVE many times. They are G-R-E-A-T!
I’m glad to know so many of you like this band and this song… because I love them! So, here’s the video for the LIVE show you requested. It was a fantastic show by The Killers directed by Werner Herzog @ New York City’s Paradise Theater on September 18, 2012. I was there weeping next to the stage while Brandon was sweating like hell as he sang this song 🙂 Great audience by the way. SO HERE YOU HAVE IT:
And yes… I didn’t forget our readers who requested the lyrics. So here they are!
