Am tagging along with a really good friend of mine to see Muse in November.To be honest am going cos it's in Barcelona and have never been there beforeblush

Can someone give me a top ten/fifteen muse tracks that I could look up and get into- so at least I can recognise some of the songs.

Ta v much- and if anyone has any spare 30 seconds to mars tickets for koko in camden on 16/11-please please can i buy them off you as I love Jaredgrin

the only muse song i like is called 'Plug In Baby' and even then i'm not sure if i like the video, or the title grin. Cracking guitar though <uncool emoticon>

seriously, dh and i were saying the other day that you can probably learn everything you need to know about Muse by listening to Radiohead's 'Ok Computer', which you may well already have a copy of.

I'm sure i'm about to get things thrown at me by some big Muse fans, but that's my two cents anyway.

Bloody love 'em

DD12 got me into them only quite recently. Played a fantastic track in the Twilight film where the vampires played baseball. 'supermassiveblackhole' and I think that was the first time I ever heard them and thought Wow.

Saw the on Jools later show last week was it . Damn good live.Enjoy

Bliss
Starlight

Oh bugger, there's loads. Hang on, off to look at CDs.

They are really good, and actually excellent live - enjoy!

Wanderingsheep Sat 03-Oct-09 20:02:06

I can't remember what the song is called! It's bugging me now, it's in my head, lol.

they do a brilliant version of feeling good.

Plug in Baby- one of the best riffs ever!

Knights of Cydonia- yay... riding through the galaxy on my electro stallion

I think the albums work best as a whole thing though - so if you just listen to two albums it has to be Absolution, and Black Holes and Revelations - though I have not got the new one yet.

They are amazing live (have seen them once before) - I am jealous

omg how have you never got into muse before!

you have a whole month....start at the beginning

im jealous, atm i still aint got a ticket...

Thanks to everyone who has responded.

I don't know either vampyrekisses, they just seemed to slip under my radar.

However having said that, when i youtubed all the songs given to me so far, i realised i knew more about muse than i thought.

Am beginning to look forward to the concert now.

And on a separate note, no spare 30seconds to mars tickets going then!!

My DS is going to see Muse in November too - only in Liverpool though, I think he'd far rather go to Barcelona grin
