Oh baby, don't you know I suffer?
Oh baby, can you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenses,
How long before you let me go?

Oo-ah, you set my soul alight
Oo-ah, you set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(Oo-ah, you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (into the supermassive)
(Oo-ah, you set my soul)

I thought I was a fool for no one
But oh baby, I'm a fool for you
You're the Queen of the superficial
But how long before you tell the truth?

Oo-ah, you set my soul alight
Oo-ah, you set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(Oo-ah, you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (into the supermassive)
(Oo-ah, you set my soul)

(Supermassive black hole)
(Supermassive black hole)
(Supermassive black hole)
(Supermassive black hole)

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(Oo-ah, you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (into the supermassive)
(Oo-ah, you set my soul)

They are infinitely better than Radiohead.

True music anyway. Muse godlike.
Can't wait to see them (again) here in LA next week! One of my favorite live acts.

Worse ways to die.
Another group new to me.  every night with the RP and still I'm learning.
This album is flat out amazing.  Like a prog rebirth with a little Queen and funk thrown in.  I love how the album kicks off with a dark lyrical promise of "Pay, You must pay, You must pay for your crimes against the earth."

Then after this the albums got all synth-dub-EDM, and I just couldn't get into the music one bit. New album was completely lost on me.   They are off exploring their own direction, good for them, just not for me.
Love your dancing banana!


Rest in peace C.

Shout out to Curtis B. in Arizona who just linked to this song and RP on his Facebook page...

Dueling Hyperbole Banjos... although even as a citizen of the US of Arseholes, I have to admit that gazcon is more right than valentine. The heirs apparent of this sound in the US of Androids would be the likes of Prince or Queens of the Stone Age. Which is not bad at all. On the other hand, we get many mediocre entries, like Arcade Fire, being worshipped for a listen-twice-ignore-thereafter sound.   

 
 

Arcade Fire are from Canada.
One of my favorite bands of all time to see live. Quite amazing... if you ever get the chance, go!

A few years ago I took my son to see them. It was his first concert and it was crazy good. Afterwards I said "Uh, Rael, don't expect too many of the rest of the shows you see in your life to be this nearly this good." I set the bar pretty high going out of the gate for him as he still hasn't seen one to top it yet.
This album is thoroughly amazing all the way through; proggy, lots of Queen influence, and some great lyrics.  After this album, the band started going over to the side of poppiness, if not some dub style music. that just seemed weak.  I'll use the Coldplay comparison - a band that put some much work and talent into some early albums, then sold out to pop in the highest order.  Muse hasn't gone full bubble gum pop, but they are sure flirting with it.

Absolutely correct.
Excellent set this morning-as usual- and I'd like to see someone try to hold still while this is playing...
Prefect ending of hectic Monday office day {#Clap} Thank you !
Bill you are KILLING it this morning with the Elbow-Genesis-Jethro Tull-Muse sequence! More proggy stuff please!

Wow!!!
Far more interesting than U2. Jus' sayin'
Prince-esque
This is so fine.

SUPERMAGIC BACKHOE!!!  {#Guitarist}
Finally, thank goodness, a Muse tune that I like.
I like the transition from Rodigo to this.
My favourite current band. The first band I've been really excited by in nearly 25 years.
Beatles - Jethro Tull - Genesis - Supertramp .... and now Muse.

And I discovered them here - when RP was playing their song 'Endlessly' more often. Good Catch Guys!
TWILIGHT baseball scene.  Took me a while to remember where I first heard it. 

It would be nice to hear a baritone for once.

Or Ivan Rebroff with his four and a half octave range. He didn't need  no steenkin mike to fill a concert hall with his falsetto.


sounds better turned way, way up

Hmm. Seems like another flavor of rock'n'roll. Funky flavor at that.
Has sort of a Garbage sound. Band not trash.

right on. if they'd loosen the handbreak this would be a rock n roll song.

great song, none the less. but it's just an appetizer for tunes that really r-o-c-k...like Jawbox's Savory for example...
Supermassively A-MUSE-ing
Following this with Purple Haze is brilliant!   True artistry!

I like these guys more and more and more. Great stuff for a Friday when I'm about to get off work early. Aaaaaaooooooo! 
Never quite noticed them before, this has made me want more.
I totally agree, assides from the great music, you get to se how the musicians enjoy every moment of it, ...no, "enjoy" is nor the right word for it ...

Saw them at Lollapalooza this summer.

This is a band that should definitely be experienced live - I went in as a "modest fan" and exited that experience as a "committed fan"

Starting to explore their catalog of work more thoroughly.

It was clear from the live show that this is a collection of three super talented musicians - in a way, they remind me of Rush.

Finally smiling this morning - thanks Bill!  Now, if only there were a dance floor in the office, or I at least didn't work in a glass cube. {#Bananasplit}

From the rest of their music, I thought I'd never hear anything from Muse that I liked.  I'm disabused of that notion.  This is GOOD!

Noticed this group on Yahoo this morning as they were listed among the 25 highest paid musical acts of the past year. Never woulda guessed that, but they were right up there with the Paul McCartneys and Beyonce's.
Eh, good for them I guess.....
A-MAZING song!

That's some NASTY guitar work.  This song makes me dance. I'm not gonna buy the CD because I just know that if I put it in my Sidekick, I'd blow the speakers out, break a noise ordinance, or get a speeding ticket (not necessarily in that order.) {#Dancingbanana_2}
Scissor Sisters, right?
Great stuff!!
guilty pleasure song...

Britney Spears' band with a new singer?
Love this - thanks Bill
we need to hear MORE VARIETY of the SUPERMASSIVE collection of Muse music here on RP  {#Group-hug} {#Boohoo}
Saw them in Nijmegen last week. Awesome.
Apparently the woke the shuttle Atlantis' crew with this today on her last ever trip into space.
RIP Atlantis.
Opening riff is great, rest of the song just meh.{#Rolleyes}

I like it when Radio Paradise defies casting a mold for itself.  I would argue that sometimes RP gets sleepy, but then it's all personal taste - isn't it!


Good crunch factor!!
Very Dandy (Warhols) Song.
WOOOOOHOO!!!

I'm trying to forget that association because I REALLY like this song.

I practically had an orgasm when this song came on in the move, because the combination of something that's cool after two hours without and the realization that the movie was over was just too much...

But I'm sure the giggling girls behind us just thought I was overcome with joy for the happy ending for Mary Sue and Lite-Brite Angel.
Twilight.

Not the best work by MUSE but it is okay. I highly recommend all of you picking up their album "Absolution". When it first came out, I heard the reviews of this from some top UK magazine, "Earth shattering and life saving" I was thinking it was an exaggeration, but it was not. The last track is lame because they let the bassist sing. LOL Other than that it is fantastic!

Thanks... It wouldn't be RP without the obscurists chiming in.

Now, if you'll excuse me I'm over here enjoying this song...
Great band, real unique sounds.
OHHH YESS!!   Bill...you're rocking my world! {#Guitarist}
Prince + Flaming Lips + Gorillaz = Hot Purple Kong.

It's like Queen and Radiohead had a baby that sometimes sound like Bono... but a great album nonetheless.

I went to MUSE's concert in Paris. A lot of energy and a fantastic show. They are really shaped for live performances. Definitely my favorite rock band.
Love this song, love the album, love Muse. yup.
