All These Things That I've Done by Killers - The
"All These Things That I've Done" is a song performed by The Killers, and written by lead vocalist Brandon Flowers. The song appears on their debut album Hot Fuss. It was released as the third single in 2004 in the United Kingdom and as the fourth single in the United States. The single peaked at 74 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at 18 in the UK Singles Chart. "All These Things That I've Done" was the only song the band performed at Live 8. The song features an extended refrain of "I got soul, but I'm not a soldier", a phrase now associated with both the song and the band as a whole. Robbie Williams incorporated this refrain into his own performance. Coldplay and U2 followed suit and, at their separate concerts played in Las Vegas, with The Killers in the crowd, incorporated the line into their songs "God Put a Smile upon Your Face" and "Beautiful Day", respectively.
