10. The Kills - No Wow

The Kills - No Wow


You're gonna have to step over my dead body
Before you walk out that door
You charmed me with your magic
Landed looking tragic

"Forever" is the feather you ain't got no more
And all the people you see coming by to save ou
You're make-believing-on in your mind
Your eyes are holy rollin', looking, beating, knocking
The ceiling gets closer to you all the time

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet, fled to die closer to the shore
This ain't no wow no more

You're gonna have to step over my dead body
Before you walk out that door
You charmed me with your magic
Landed looking tragic
"Forever" is the feather you ain't got no more

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet, fled to die closer to the shore
This ain't no wow no more

Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like the loose end of the night

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet, fled to die closer to the shore

9. The Kills - The Good Ones

The Good Ones is first single of the album No Wow. It is a fourth song from the album. The video is directed by Rojo and note work with purple spot effect in this clip. Sit down and listen to sweet and seductive melodies with hot music video. Enjoy!

The Kills - The Good Ones


Took a car to the part of the city
Where the city runs out of street lights
God knows, it's the way that it goes
That we're never gonna catch any daylight

My little sister's eyes so wide
They must have been the size of the city moon tonight
My little sister's eyes so wide
Must have been the size of the city

Did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones

Did you got me the good ones
The real good ones, what you got
Take a water full, the water tastes good
I took the water and the water was hot

Once in a while, once in a while
You got to burn your lips, keep your feelings alive
Once in a while, once in a while
You got to burn down your house, keep your dreaming alive

So, did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones
Oh, did you get the real good ones

8. The Kills - Sour Cherry

Hand-clapping Sour Cherry is the ninth song from excellent album Midnight Boom. The song is based on looped beats and dark electro-rock sounds. Breathe an air of modernity and experimentation. Unfortunately, The Kills have not recorded a music video for this song, so you and watch just compiled youtube video.

The Kills - Sour Cherry


Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause you crossed my mind, you crossed my mind
Made my blood thump Saturday night
Make my heart beat double time
Now I'm only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand

Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause you crossed my mind, you crossed my mind
I'm a penny in a diamond mine
We could be movers
We could be shakers
If we could just shake somin' outta the blue we could get off the ride
I'm the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand

G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
G-g-g-go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
Go go home it’s over

7. The Kills - Love Is A Deserter

Get your guns out, get the guns out. You love is a DESERTER ... After one hearing this catchy chorus, you will have it in your head still :) Love is a deserter as a second song from the album No Wow is from 2005. Music video for this single is work of Mark Davis. For whole video is specific overlap effect.

The Kills - Love Is A Deserter


One eye in the sun, one in the night
Sleep tight, sleepwalk like honey, honey
Oh my, capital i love u
Put it in a letter honey
I could kiss you underwater
I could in the rearview mirror
Xo, took my heart and crossed it
Set it down and lost it
Say it again...

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Your love is a deserter

One eye in the sun, one eye in the night
Sleep tight, sleepwalk like honey, honey
When you want me, you got me where you want me again
Say it again!
If it's personal, say it again!

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Your love is a deserter

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out

You got one eye as white as a bride
The other eye, as black as the devil
It's alright!
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!

Crossed wires, sparking a little
Start a house fire with us in the middle
It's alright!
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Your love is a deserter

6. The Kills - Last Day of Magic

Let fall down into a netherworld of rock'n'roll relationship between man and woman. Little tornado and hurricano become apparent in twangy sound of the song. Take pleasure in Last Day of Magic, although magic of this piece can be in you even though song ends. Album Midnight Boom, director Sophie Muller.

The Kills - Last Day of Magic


We're two parties
Two parties ending
What if you move?
What if you hide?
There's only so much you can miss
Before we both collide

My little tornado
My little hurricano
Last day of magic
Where are you?
My little tornado
My little hurricano

We're two parties
Two parties ending
I'll be the man with the broom
If you'll be the dust of the room
And there's only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic
Where were you?
My little tornado
My little hurricano
Last day of magic
Coming through
The eye of the storm
And I hold on to
My little tornado
My little hurricano

I'll be the man with the broom
If you'll be the dust of the room
And there's only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic
Put the whole ride through
The eye of the storm
In a single room
My little tornado
My little hurricano
Cavalry come
Cavalry go
Cavalry leave me alone
A little serenade, oh
A little cup of cane, oh
Last day of magic
Where were you
A little tornado
A little hurricano

5. The Kills - Satellite

The Satellite is first single from newest album Blood Pressures. Sit down into Rolls Royce with Allison & Jamie and experience journey of night town full of neon lights. The song is mix of melancholy vocals, lightly reggae guitar and deep lyrics. Director of this video is Sophie Muller.

The Kills - Satellite


Lost her behind the station
Lost her behind the moon
Operator, operator dial her back
Operator put me through
Ahuuuh, Satellite gave up the ghost too soon
Rising on the thermals
She calling in and out the blue
Ahuuuh, carried her off on a silver spoon
I loved her too long, don’t take her too

Oooohhh ohhhhhhh

Oh how he crossed us on that fate
your path in my own satellite
What a mess a little time makes to us
when time and place collide
Operator, operator dial her back
Operator, operator don’t take her too.
I loved her too her long, don’t love her too
Operator, operator dial her back
Operator, operator don’t take her too
I love her too her long, don’t love her too,
don’t love her too

Oooohhh ohhhhhhh

4. The Kills - Black Balloon

The song the Black Ballon was realeased in 2009 as 7th song on album Midnight Boom. For this video is typical dark vampire theme, so enjoy bloody mouth, blurred makeup and night streets. Alison creates grim atmosphere with hypnotizing vocals.

The Kills - Black Balloon


Elevator straight into my skull
The escalator rises as it falls
I swear our jet is crashing in my mind
You can hold on but i wouldn't waste your time

Farewell my black balloon

I've stood in a thousand street scenes
Just around the corner from you
On the edge of a dream that you have
Has anybody ever told you, it's not coming true?

Farewell my black balloon

3. The Kills - U. R. A. Fever

Album Midnight Boom opens with the single U.R.A. Fever.

The Kills Lyrics - U. R. A. Fever


Walk you to the counter
What do you got to offer
Pick you out a solder
Look at you forever
Walk you to the water
Your eyes like a casino
We ain't born typical

Find a piece of silver
Pretty as a diagram
And go down to the Rio
Put it in my left hand
Put it in a fruit machine
Everyone's a winner
Laughing like a seagull

You are a fever, you are a fever
You ain't born typical

Living in a suitcase
Meet a clown, fall in love
Went down to have you over
Going 'round a break up
Take you to a jukebox
That's the situation
Pick you out a number
And that's our arrangement

Dancing on the legs of a new-born pony
Left right left right
Keep it up son
Go ahead and have her
Go ahead and leave her
You only ever had her
When you were a fever

I am a fever, I am a fever
I ain't born typical

We are a fever, We are a fever
We ain't born typical

2. The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful

The Kills - Cheap and Cheerful


I'm bored of cheap and cheerful
I want expand some sadness
Hospital bills, parole
Open doors to madness

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

I'm sick of social crazes
Show your sharp tipped teeth
Lose your cool in public
Did the legal meet

'Cause love is just a dialogue
You can't survive on ice-cream
You got to see me dancing dog

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

1. The Kills - Tape Song

The Kills - Tape Song


You've got to

Tape ain't gonna fix it honey
It ain't gonna stick
Tape ain't gonna fix it honey
It ain't gonna stick to you

Six kinds of glue
Won't hold you
Won't hold you
Oh my oh, oh my
You've got to
You got to

You got to go steal ahead
You got to

Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time don't give a shit.
Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time's just gonna hit on you
I said time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time don't give a shit
Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time's just gonna hit on you
You got to

You got to go steal ahead
You got to

Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time don't give a shit.
Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time's just gonna hit on you
I said, six kinds of blue
Won't hold you, won't hold you
Oh my oh, oh my you've got to
You've got to, you've got to

You got to go steal ahead
Go steal ahead

You got to go steal ahead
You got to
