Sounds exactly like The Killers covering Shadowplay. Nothing more.

I do find it funny that I always said that every Interpol song sounds like a shitty cover of Shadowplay, and then Killers (who belong in the same genre) go ahead and cover it...

they were commissioned to do it for the film control, which ive bought but yet to watch, you cant blame them for doing it. you can blame them for being a piss poor band tho! as for the interpol/killers comparison... interpol made one great album, the killers may have played one great chord!

Agreed.

I don't know if turn on the bright lights is great, but I do really enjoy some of the songs on there. The generous guitar layering is friendly to my ears.

The Killers are just awful.

No excuse, if they had any sense of their own inadequacy theydve said no. I dont get why they couldnt use the original in the film, they used Atmosphere not to mention all the performances.
I dont want to spoil the film for you though (He Kills Himself)

Probably because they wanted to make money for whomever receives royalties from Joy Division's songs these days. I'm sure it was entirely a selfless act.

Horrible song indeed, especially the "Oooh oooh ooh" part. It's amazing how one band can fuck up a masterpiece so badly!

About the Interpol stuff, Turn on the bright lighs is a great album. Good lyrics, great song structures, just plain great! Antics is complete bollocks and Our love to admire has some good tracks on it but overall a very dull album.
