#MusicMonday ft. Muscle Museum by Muse

Don’t you just love alliterations? 😁

Today I’m taking a leaf from the book of Drew a.k.a. @SarcasticEnigma (https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress.com/) and joining Music Monday!

Last week I heard Muscle Museum on the radio and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since. This song was released in 1999 and I still remember the first time I saw the music video. It features, among other people, a man crying while brushing his teeth. I, at the time a moody teenager, was so touched by that image that it stuck with me all these years, melodramatic though it may be!

I love everything about this song, from the dramatic music to the sad but beautiful lyrics:

She had something to confess to
But you don’t have the time
So look the other way
You will wait until it’s over
To reveal what you’d never shown her
Too little much too late
Too long trying to resist it

You’ve just gone and missed it
It’s escaped your world

Can you see that I am needing
And begging for so much more
Than you could ever give
And I don’t want you to adore me
Don’t want you to ignore me
When it pleases you
Yeah, and I’ll do it on my own
I have played in every toilet
But you still want to spoil it
To prove I’ve made a big mistake
Too long trying to resist it
You’ve just gone and missed it
It’s escaped your world
Can you see that I am needing
And begging for so much more
Than you could ever give
And I don’t want you to adore me
Don’t want you to ignore me
When it pleases you
Yeah, and I’ll do it on my own
And I’ll do it all by myself
You will never make it
