‘The Voice’ Contestants Come Together for the Killers’ ‘All These Things That I’ve Done’
Considering the tragic news that came out of Las Vegas this week — the suicide of Killers saxophone player Tommy Marth — it wasn’t a surprise at all that the remaining contestants on ‘The Voice’ would put their differences aside and team up to perform the Killers tune ‘All These Things That I’ve Done.’ That’s exactly the touching sort of musical tribute that you would expect from ‘The Voice’ — except for the fact that Marth didn’t actually perform on ‘All These Things’ or any other song on the band’s debut album, ‘Hot Fuss.’ Hey, at least they tried.
Ok, so maybe they weren’t actually aiming for a Marth tribute after all, but the song was moving nonetheless. How can you not be moved by the centerpiece tune, with its uplifting gospel-choir chorus? We won’t get into the details of the performance — they basically all took turns singing in different parts, to different degrees of success — but it is nice to see everybody singing with each once in awhile.
Things picked up when they got to the anthemic “I got soul, but I’m not a soldier” part — was it their way of saying they aren’t really battling each other after all, that they are all in this together? Who knows. We won’t say they killed it, but it was definitely a nice tribute to a fallen comrade — whether it was meant to be or not.
