Haha, in case you ever wanted to know my favourite Muse songs ;)
This is just me procrastinating from studying for my biology final…
Song: Soaked (unreleased)
"I wrote a song called ‘Soaked’ when we were making Black Holes and Revelations, it is just like ‘Nikita’ by Elton John or one of those kind of tunes from the 80s. According to our publisher, it’s an Adam Lambert-esque song, who took second place in American Idol. I want to write various genres of music, classical music, pop music, and anything. I suppose Muse have the clear distinction that we must not go overboard, however, I sometimes cross that threshold as a songwriter. When I’m about to do so, it’s made clear thanks to Chris and Dom.” - Matthew Bellamy
I know I’ve been posting way too much about Muse lately, but please, just listen to this song.
It seriously made me cry and it’s haunting, beautiful, an inspiring message at the end. Remember you’re never alone.
Soaked to the bone
Sink like a stone
Walk home alone
It’s not the first time, it’s not the worst crime
Your soul will be okay
When you’ve had enough
Searching for love
And you miss the touch
Of someone new
Burnt by dreams
It’s never how it seems
Cold crushed esteem
Take shelter and hide forever
Your soul will be okay.
In honour of Dom’s birthday!
I did not know Dom was allergic to apples! Aaaw poor guy!
That’s awesome that he wants “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen played at his funeral. It suits him so well! But hopefully that’s a loooong time coming ;)
When performing in non-English speaking countries, Dom talks to the crowd by reading off a series of cue cards…
…And when performing in the Far East they were sabotaged by his bandmates. This resulted in Dom greeting the crowd by saying: “I have a nice bum!”“To train us to the tour the only sport we do is the booze” Dom on how to deal with life on the road“We’ve got 5 buses, I’ve got one, Chris has one and Dom has 3: one for his clothes, one for himself and one for his ego”
Matt on tourbuses
…I love Muse.
