I have had one pressing question on my mind all week:
Are we Human? Or are we Dancer?
This question sure puzzled Brandon Flowers from the Killers. So much that he sang a song about it.
He is on his knees, looking for the answer in fact. He is pretty fucking floored by this question.
Dude. It is not that pressing is it? How do we stop the Polar icecaps from melting? Is it possible to eliminate poverty? Will AIDS ever have a cure? Can a badger dance on a spoon? All these questions are more pressing than the one above.
I mean, sure, dancers can be a bit odd sometimes, perhaps they do seem like a different species. But we aren't all dancers now are we? Or is he asking if we are all "Dancer" the reindeer? Is there a reindeer called Dancer?
Whatever. This ponderation does not warrant a song being written about it either way. The only explanation I can come up with as to why airwave time was dedicated to this garbage was that there was a typo. On the day of recording, the typist had one too many swigs from their hipflask and typed it up wrong.
You see the only way it makes sense that the Killers would have written a song like this, is if the real words are:
Are we Human? Or are we Hamster?
You see? It all becomes much clearer when I put it like that. Now that is a question worth asking. I have often wondered myself, and would be prepared to go down on my knees to look for the answer.
So the next time you hear this song with the ridiculous lyrics but distressingly catchy tune, please make sure to sing along using the correct words. People will thank you for it.
