Imagine Dragons New Song “Shots”

Sounds to me like the band is channeling some mid 1980’s Outfield on that song!

Imagine Dragons has a new album coming out on February 24th called “Smoke And Mirrors”.  They have released three singles so far, “I Bet My Life”, “Gold” and “Shots”.   Two of them are great songs, but “Gold” doesn’t do it for me.

This band has come a long way since I saw them on a side stage at the Firefly Festival back in 2012.  Even though they only played about six songs, it was one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen.  Even though they have hit it big, they are still willing to experiment.  I can’t wait to hear what the rest of the album sounds like.

Back when I first started listening to them, I heard a rumor the name Imagine Dragons is an anagram.  When I found out what it actually means, I was somewhat shocked.  I won’t tell you what it is, but can you figure it out?

I can’t listen to “Demons” without thinking about the time my mom passed away.  I used to wonder what she would think of me when she did pass and she could see everything.  Sounds weird, but don’t we all wonder that sometimes when our loved ones pass away?

The first time I heard them was “It’s Time”.  I found a few more of their songs and liked what I heard.  They were the opening band on the first Saturday at the inaugural Firefly Festival.  I was within the first five rows, and the band started playing “Round And Round”.  “On Top of the World” got the crowd going.  They set the pace for everyone else to follow that day.  I know “Radioactive” is their biggest song, but they will be around for a long time.
