SONG OF THE DAY: The Killers “Shot at the Night (Cazzette Remix)” / “When You Were Young (Calvin Harris)”

the-killers-direct-hits

The Killers have never been afraid of clubland, and as an electronic-driven rock band has had their tracks remixed by everyone from Madeon, Stuart Price, Josh Harris, Ferry Corsten, Armin van Buuren, Pet Shop Boys, and Steve Aoki. Gearing up for the release of their Greatest Hits compilation ‘Direct Hits,’ both their current single “Shot at The Night” and their 2006 single “When You Were Young” get the remix treatment.  In the hands of Cazzette, the m83-produced  “Shot at the Night” transforms from downbeat synth pop to an edgier electro track with ELO-ish elements and a bit of a singalong Mika/Scissor Sisters feel.   Calvin Harris transforms the rootsy rock of “When You Were Young” to a big room stadium house monster. With all the great remixes that the Killers have released over the years, a greatest remixes album to accompany ‘Direct Hits’ seems like a no brainer.
