All These Things That I've Done (5:03)

Cover of Hot Fuss

From Hot Fuss and 19 other releases

All These Things That I’ve Done” is a song performed by The Killers, and written by lead vocalist Brandon Flowers. The song appears on their debut album Hot Fuss. It was released as the third single in 2005 in the UK and as the fourth single in the US. It features a memorable extended chorus of “I got soul but I’m not a soldier…”, a phrase now associated with the song; this was quoted by Robbie Williams during his performance of “Let Me Entertain You” during Live 8 on July 2, 2005. The single peaked at 74 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at 18 in the UK Singles Chart. It was the only song the band performed at Live 8.

The song was featured in the closing credits of the 2005 film The Matador, as well as the 2007 movie Southland Tales as a crucial part of the storyline in which Pilot Abilene (played by Justin Timberlake) lip-synchs it. It was also mentioned in the graphic novel preceding the film, Southland Tales: The Prequel Saga. It also played over the opening of the pilot of the television series Jericho. It is heard at the end of the 2008 Ben Stein film Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. The song plays in virtually its entirety over the first segment of the first episode of the 2008 PBS documentary series “Carrier.” Nike used the song in a commercial for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Following this Nike ad, the song rose as high as #38 on iTunes.

Like “Mr. Brightside”, the song features two videos. The earlier version features The Killers singing while walking down Brick Lane in London accompanied by a crowd.

    Nope... not only doesn't it ever get old, but it constantly makes me want to play it 3,4, 10 times in a row everytime I hear it... I don't think I can begin to tell you how rare it is for me to say that about just about any song written&performed by a band/artist who started in the business post Y2K.

    Songs like this always make me wonder which is more difficult--becoming a "one hit wonder," or becoming, say, a multi-Grammy winner. How does a group which has the imagination and talent to produce an awesome number like this become incapable of producing a 2nd or 3rd AMAZING! song!?! It seriously makes me wonder.
