Music Monday: Muse- Reapers

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme started by Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek and I could not help myself- I had to hop on the bandwagon. You see, the two simple things in life: music and books, are the two things which really are food for the soul. Any time you speak about music or books, 90% of the time your discussion partner will claim how Tune x or Book y helped them get through a tough time in their life.

I had picked out a different tune for today, from 1975 no less! πŸ˜‰ But I decided to go for something else. Since the last book I finished was The Rebel’s Sketchbook and my head was full of all sorts of defiant thoughts, I decided to stick with the mood and theme and as such Muse will be the highlight today.

Artist: Muse

Album: Drones

Release: 2015

Home, It’s becoming a killing field
There’s a cross hair locked on my heart
With no recourse and there’s no one behind the wheel
Hell fire, You’re wiping me out, killed by

Drones, (killed by)
Drones (killed by)

You rule with lies and deceit
And the world is on your side
‘Cause you’ve got the CIA, babe
But all you’ve done is brutalise
Drones!

War, war just moved up a gear
I don’t think I can handle the truth
I’m just a pawn
And we’re all expendable
Incidentally
Electronically erased
By your

Drones, (killed by)
Drones (killed by)

You kill by remote control
The world is on your side
You’ve got reapers and hawks babe
Now I am radicalized
Drones!

You rule with lies and deceit
And the world is on your side
‘Cause you’ve got the CIA, babe
But all you’ve done is brutalise

You kill by remote control
The world is on your side
You’ve got reapers and hawks babe
Now I am radicalized
Here come the drones!
Here come the drones!
Here come the drones!

Any of you like Muse? I used to only like select tunes from their older stuff but their Drones album knocked me off my feet completely!Β

  1. I was only vaguely familiar with Muse, in fact I had no idea they were still around until you posted this. I love, love, love that guitar sound. I am going to have to Google and see if any magazines did a rig rundown for the guitar player. Thanks for sharing. The lyrics are apropos to what is going on in the world, that’s for sure. πŸ™‚

    I have to start doing my Monday music posts again on a more regular basis because someone sent me a “constructive” criticism in an email about people not liking me putting so much music stuff in my Sunday posts. Whatever. Ha ha. XD

    • Well, I wasn’t a huge Muse fan myself… but this album Drones was right up my alley, so that’s the one I would suggest… πŸ™‚ What music would you normally listen to? Any recs for me to break out of my rock/metal tunes? πŸ™‚

      • Then I’ll check out the full album. Thanks for the recommendation!

        Ooh, if you want something to break you out of your rock/metal, I strongly recommend Pink Martini. They are a big band which focuses on bringing World Music to a more accessible place. My favorite album is Hang on Little Tomato, but I love all their albums. Plus, they are an amazing live band! πŸ™‚
