“Somebody Told Me” is a song by American rock band The Killers. It was released as the second official single from the group’s debut studio album Hot Fuss (2004), and was written by band members Brandon Flowers, Mark Stoermer, Dave Keuning and Ronnie Vannucci Jr.. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Brandon Flowers said: “This is the story of trying to meet someone in a club.” It is written in the key of B-flat minor. When the Killers first started out, their music was little noticed by music buyers and the media, which is why “Somebody Told Me” has been released twice in slightly different forms. The first, with the pink background cover, is the rarer version of the single as it was their first release of it; due to poor sales, not as many were produced. When re-released, the cover art sported a blue background color and is the more common version of the single. The single peaked at number 51 on the United States Billboard Hot 100. In the United Kingdom, it charted at number 28 upon its first release in March 2004, becoming the band’s first hit in the Top 40, it was then re-released in January 2005 and reached number three. In Australia, the song was ranked number four on Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2004. In 2009, it was voted at number nine in XFM’s Top 100 Songs of the Decade.
