Produced by The Killers, Alan Moulder & Flood. The opening song of the album, Sam’s Town serves as a transitionary song away from the British sound of the Killer’s first album, Hot Fuss, and towards the more American-influenced sounds of its own album, setting the stage for the rest of the album. Sam’s Town takes its name from a Las Vegas casino whose sign was visible through bassist Mike Stoermer’s childhood window. The band later celebrated the album’s 10-year anniversary with a concert held at this namesake casino. What have the artists said about the song?
the killers sams town - album - sams town ( personally one of my favourites). Youtube Wall Of Voodoo - Seven Days In Sammystown the whole album, a very similar style with little mini-songs in between the main ones. It's a style I've always liked, those snippets between the songs, can anyone out there point to pre- Stan Ridgeway use of it? I bet he wasn't the first, just the first for my age group I'm guessing.

First there's the album title, Sam's Town, which pays tribute to the old-school local casino where the band got its start. Then there's the music inside, a collection of windswept rockers in the vein of Bruce Springsteen that leave the indie-disco vibe of "Mr. Brightside" in the desert dust. Working with producers Alan Moulder and Flood (best known for their work with U2, Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails), everything here sounds bigger and shinier, with full-blown strings and choirs coloring epics like "When You Were Young" and "The River Is Wild. I hope that with their next album, The Killers will reuse a lot of the qualities found in Sam's Town. 4 people found this helpful.
Why "Sam's Town" By The Killers Is The Anthem of Rural, Working-Class America. Over a decade later, Sam's Town has proven itself as a quintessential musical piece representing small-town, working-class America. Annah Kendall Feb 23, 2019. These are the lyrics Brand Flowers etched out to describe his upbringing in Las Vegas, Nevada, a popular tourist destination known for its one-night-stands of hedonism, chaos, and casinos. But this one-night stand isn't staying in Vegas - these words paint a picture all across small-town, rural America - especially among Midwestern towns, where centers of civilization are few and far between. In 2009, readers' of Rolling Stone placed Sam's Town as the most underrated album of the decade.
