I feel as though I’m the only one who thinks this, but I don’t think Only the Young should be a single. Of what I’ve heard, Flamingo is a great album. But Only the Young is one of the weaker tracks.
Based on The Killers’ single history, there are only 4 singles to an album. With crossfire and swallow it already out, and only the young the next to come, there will be only one more single. Magdalena and Jilted Lovers are much better than only the young, and both deserve to be singles. I also think that the latter two would do better on the charts, as they probably would be more easily excepted and like by the general public. Only the young is stranger and slower, which won’t be a good combination. But who knows? Maybe it will explode and be the next big hit. Maybe he’ll have more than four singles. All I’m saying is, there are way better songs on the album than only the young. It’s not that it’s not good, it’s just that there are better.
This is just my thoughts on one song. Expect a full track-by-track review when the album releases.
