Amazon UK Bestsellers Rank - Update for 10 December 2019 Origin of Muse #1 in Vinyl #4 in Alternative Rock #9 in Box Sets (CDs & Vinyl) #68 in CDs & Vinyl Official Albums Chart Update (based on UK sales across 6-8 December 2019) #1 WHO - The Who (12th studio album) #33 Origin of Muse - MUSE (Early years vinyl box set) with a price tag exceeding 100 quid https://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/the-who-on-course-for-first-uk-number-1-in-almost-50-years-with-their-twelfth-studio-album-who__27946/ 'Take A Bow' - Opening track from Black Holes and Revelations released in 2006 Corruption by world political leaders just as prevalent in 2019 as it was in 2003 when the track was first performed in Helsinki as a piano outro after 'Citizen Erased' Inspired by Philip Glass Alternate Title 'Hex' Used in the trailer for the 2009 film Watchmen Likely written at the end of the Absolution sessions with the lyrics at least in part a protest against the Iraq War Moves through three stages: classical; techno; and a heavy apocalyptic rock ending Its structure is mathematical, the main idea being a formula with neither chorus nor verse Chords move in fourths upwards, by using the augmented fifth in between to move. The key of the song changes a total of 13 times, each time moving to the nearest key in the circle of fifths. It begins in D major before following the circle counter-clockwise to E-Flat Major. After the lyric "Our freedom's consuming itself," the song goes clockwise back to F Major. After the techno mid-section, the song again begins moving counter-clockwise around the circle, changing key 6 times before finishing in B Major which is the key of the second track 'Starlight'.
