TOP SONGS OF 2010:#1 BRANDON FLOWERS: CROSSFIRE
5/5. As Flowers looked to grow as a solo artist all he needed was a Killer song. The Las Vegas bands frontman has a penchant for writing catchy, big hits and caught between no band and his reputation Flowers shot out with 'Crossfire'. This big hit was one of Brandon's most memorable and best records to date. Although it was a shame to see him without 'The Killers' it was great to see him alive on his own. The uplifting song also had a made for the movies, big video, with Hollywood starlet Charlize Theron kicking ass and saving Brandon's. This hit took a lot of beating however, lyrically and vocally tough from every verse to the last epic hook. Between grand guitar and supreme singing, 'Crossfire' shot down all doubt and competition. It was also a damn good song, making it 'AMP's & 808's' song of the year. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
