This is another pandora radio pick.

Per wikipedia:
Muse are an English rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The band consists of Matt Bellamy (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Dominic Howard (drums.)

Muse signed to Maverick Records and released their debut album, Showbiz, in 1999, showcasing Bellamy’s falsetto and a melancholic alternative rock style. Their second album, Origin of Symmetry (2001,) incorporated wider instrumentation and romantic classical influences, and earned them a reputation for energetic live performances. Absolution (2003) saw further classical influence, with orchestra on tracks such as “Butterflies and Hurricanes”, and was the first of five consecutive UK number-one albums.

Black Holes and Revelations (2006) incorporated electronic and pop elements, displayed in singles such as “Supermassive Black Hole.” The album brought Muse wider international success. The Resistance (2009) and The 2nd Law (2012) explored themes of government oppression and civil uprising and cemented Muse as one of the world’s major stadium acts. Their seventh album, Drones (2015), was a concept album about drone warfare and returned to a harder rock sound. Their eighth album, Simulation Theory (2018), prominently featured synthesisers and was influenced by science fiction and the simulation hypothesis.

Muse have won numerous awards, including two Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, five MTV Europe Music Awards and eight NME Awards. In 2012 they received the Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. As of June 2016, they have sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

Black Holes and Revelations was co-produced with Rich Costey. The album’s title and themes reflect the band’s interest in science fiction. The album charted at number one in the UK, much of Europe, and Australia. In the US, it reached number nine on the Billboard 200.

Supermassive Black Hole” charted at number four on the UK Singles Chart, the highest singles chart position the band has achieved to date in the United Kingdom. In October 2011, NME placed it at number 74 on its list “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years”. It was nominated for the Kerrang! Award for Best Single. The song has been described as alternative rock, dance-rock, and funk rock. Bellamy said that the song was “the most different to anything we’ve ever done.” Influences included bands such as The Beatles, and several Belgian bands; Millionaire, dEUS, Evil Superstars and Soulwax. Bellamy said that “these groups were the first to mix R&B rhythms with alternative guitar. We’ve added a bit of Prince and Kanye West. The drumbeat isn’t rocky, with Rage Against the Machine riffs underneath. We’ve mixed a lot of things in this track, with a bit of electronica; it’s different, slow, quite funky.”[5] In an interview with NME, Bellamy said “I was going out dancing in clubs around New York. That helped create tracks like ‘Supermassive Black Hole’. Franz Ferdinand would have done it very well, with that dance type beat going on mixed with alternative guitar and I’ve always wanted to find that.”

 

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?

Ooh
You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

I thought I was a fool for no one
Oh baby, I’m a fool for you
You’re the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth?

You set my soul alight
You set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

Super massive black hole
Super massive black hole
Super massive black hole
(Super massive black hole)

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super massive (you set my soul)

Super massive black hole
Super massive black hole
Super massive black hole
(Super massive black hole)
Songwriters: Matt Bellamy
