Olympic song by Neo-Queen band (apologies to CO and Bearsy)
1. Greek Mythology Any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus, each of whom presided over a different art or science.
2. a. A guiding spirit.
b. A source of inspiration.
3. A poet.
4. Unidentified rock band (sank) on Battleships 2 (still under appeal from OZ).
If Freddie were still with us this would be the type of song he’d be writing. Muse are almost a clone of Queen. No bad thing that, don’t you think? Over-produced crystal clear sound, histrionic vocals, screaming guitars all laced within a classical background. It’s a throwback to the first five Queen albums.
Though there are some murmurs of disapproval; even some Muse fans are unhappy with the song. One commentator saying it would be in last place at the Eurovision. Sorry buddy, you’re missing the point. Muse don’t write catchy pop songs. To appreciate their music you have to listen over and over again. One listen is not enough, the song does grow on you. Bombastic- yes. Pretentious- yes. A cut above the other bands- oh yes.
