Rufus Wainwright’s Ode to The Killers’ Brandon Flowers

The joy in my life increases x10 because ONTD exists.

Quothe Rufus in Time Out (London):

‘Tulsa’, about Killers frontman Brandon Flowers sounds particularly intriguing. ‘I don’t know him that well,’ Wainwright admits, ‘but I wrote this song about him which is kind of hilarious – it says he tastes like potato chips in the morning.’


Tulsa – Rufus Wainwright

You taste of potato chips in the morning.
Your face has the Marlon Brando club calling.
And then the thought that I owe it all to Tulsa.
And that fat guy with the Queen shirt that we both signed together.
Wanting it for someone who’d been down forever.

Your suit was the whitest thing since you-know-who.
I feel that that savior I’ve been may be you.
And then the thought that I owe it all to Tulsa.
And that poor girl who waited in the rain for hours to meet me completely.

And I owe it all to Tulsa
Just a reminder
Of the antiques shop I want to go back to and visit when it´s open
In Tulsa, Oklahama
This song’s about you.

And here’s the convo I had w/ Rach about this:

Rach: i hope it pisses flowers off
Rach: but brandon cant say anything about him negative cos then he’ll be gaybashing. SUCK IT FLOWERS.
