5 on Friday - Set 17

This has become one of my favorite groups evah.

I adore the way Muse looks at the world. All of their songs play out like life-or-death moments, when only passion can preserve a desperate soul.

For more tunes, hurry on over to Trav's Thoughts and have a listen.

1 - Resistance

The night has reached its end
We can't pretend
We must run, we must run
It's time to run

Take us away from here
Protect us from further harm

- Matthew Bellamy

2 - Map of the Problematique

I can't get it right
Get it right since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will loneliness be over?

Life will flash before my eyes
So scattered and lost
I want to touch the other side

And no one thinks they are to blame
Why can't we see
That when we bleed, we bleed the same?

- Matthew Bellamy

3 - Starlight

(sound is low on this one)

My life
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to re-ignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive

I'll never let you go
If you promise not to fade away
Never fade away

Our hopes and expectations
Black holes and revelations

- Matthew Bellamy

4 - Bliss

(don't forget to turn the volume back down!)

Everything about you pains my envying
Your soul can't hate anything
Everything about you is so easy to love
They're watching you from above

Give me
All the peace
And joy in your mind
I want the peace and joy in your mind

- Matthew Bellamy

5 - Stockholm Syndrome

And I won't hold you back
Let your anger rise
And we'll fly
And we'll fall
And we'll burn

No one will recall
No one will recall

This is the last time I'll
Abandon you
And this is the last time I'll
Forget you
I wish I could

- Matthew Bellamy

As soon as I saw Muse this week I thought to myself YES!! I love me some Muse!

One of the best parts of the movie Twilight was "Supermassive Black Hole" though I'd have loved to hear more of it! Two of my other favorites are "Knights of Cydonia" and "Uprising".

Out of this set I think I'd have to pick "Resistance" as my number one choice though it was a tough call!

Great choices again this week, Julia!! I really do like this meme!

Julia, don't know this group but I like their sound! :)

Nikki Fig said...

I've never heard of Muse but I will now check them out!

Linda - I LOVE Supermassive Black Hole, but I could only include five songs. *pouty face* And Knights of Cidonia. And about eight more that were grumbling at me to include them. Sorry, guys...

Mary - I have yet to hear a song by them that I don't like.

Nikki Fig - First of all...'Nikki Fig' - I'm seriously liking that. Luckily, discovering Muse is like finding an author with a backlist. There's several albums of enjoyment awaiting.

Had never heard this group and their videos are wonderful ... you are sending the senior out shopping again for Muse.

I have to confess I don't know any of these. :(

I couldn't get into these guys. But that's ok. The cool thing about this feature is exposure to sounds like we might not otherwise have heard.
