  • A rental car in Savannah, Georgia. In the middle of touring, we had a week off. I have a problem with flying, so instead of going home, my wife came to me and we rented a car and drove around. Just pulled off on some dirt roads...
    • When asked the craziest place he's ever had Sex.

  • What song do I hate? I think "Daughters," by John Mayer, would be a good candidate. I don't know why he bugs me so bad."
  • "Look at a band like the Bravery. They're signed because we're a band," Flowers said. "I've heard rumors about [members of] that band being in a different kind of band, and how do you defend that? If you say, 'My heart really belongs to what I'm doing now,' but you used to be in a ska band. I can see the Strokes play or Franz Ferdinand play and it's real, and I haven't gotten that from the Bravery. I think people will see through them."

  • "Now he's just signed Fall Out Boy, which means more of his attention will go to them that should have gone to The Killers".
    • "The Killers get a new feud" (9/27/2005), from
    • On why The Killer's weren't getting all the attention they deserved from their A&R man
  • "It's something that you dream about, but Milli Vanilli got a Grammy. So it's hard to decide whether you're happy or not."
    • When asked by Rolling Stone if he was "psyched" to be nominated for another Grammy.

  • "Barack Obama being elected. I think about how… um… how my sons will grow up only knowing a black President. [Wells with tears] I can’t explain how that’s changed America. There’s an optimism now that wasn’t there for black people."
    • When asked what the most culturally significant event for him between 2000 and 2010
    • "Brandon Flowers On His Sons", BabyCouture (accessed December 20, 2010)
  • "I think I always knew that I would have kids but I didn’t… understand… the… whooooo [brims with tears once again]. That I could love my kids the way that I love ‘em. I didn’t know there was… room for that. You love your wife, your family, but it’s different with your kids. I didn’t know I could be so selfless. I would do anything for my kids. Anything. I guess everybody goes through it."
    • When asked what surprised him about being a husband and a father?

You know what I would change about this moment? Nothing(looking at his band mates while recording at Abby Road Studio)(Sun dance Chanel For the T.V. Show "Live at Abbey Road")
