The theme this week for Song Lyric Sunday is game.
I’m sticking to my self-imposed rule of only picking songs from bands I’ve seen in concert. It makes it even more fun for me because I get to look back through all the concerts I’ve been to over the past thirty-seven years. WOW! That’s more years than some of you have been alive. I saw my first concert when I was thirteen and I was hooked.
The band I picked is Muse, the song is Survival. If you get a chance to see Muse, I highly recommend it! Their music is fantastic and the visuals are amazing. Definitely worth the price of the ticket.
This song was the official song of the Olympics in London in 2012.
Wiki has this info:
On the 27th of June 2012, Survival was announced as the official song for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The song was premiered on 27th June 2012 by Zane Lowe on his BBC Radio One show at 7:30pm along with a short prelude which was followed by an interview with the band.
During The 2nd Law Tour, Survival has been a standard feature of the encore.
Matt also sings during the four solos of the end of the song, with the same notes as the guitar.
