Classic Movies in Music Videos: “Bones” by The Killers

Here we have another installment of music videos that feature either classic movie stars, movies or reference classic movies.

This month’s music video is “Bones” by The Killers from their album “Sam’s Town.”

The video is of a guy and a girl in a drive in movie and we see several classic films on-screen as well as being acted out by the couple.

Some movie references are:
•”Jason and the Argonauts” (Very first shot, the fact that the band members are skeletons
•”From Here to Eternity” (1953)- :30 seconds, 1:00, 1:30
•”Easy to Love” (1953)-  2:12
•”Lolita” (1962)- 2:39
•”Creature from the Black Lagoon” (1954)- 3:16

Enjoy and let me know if I missed any!

  1. About the 2:50 mark and the two skeletons running towards each other on the beach is, I think, a take off on Dudley Moore’s fantasy of him and Bo Derek running towards each other in “10..”


    • ooo I haven’t seen that movie. I think I actually read that but forgot to mention it. Thanks! I didn’t know if the two skeletons driving was from something, but it really could be anything I guess!
