  9. Updated above. Sorry for the oversight. Finland has now leapfrogged the UK for 1st place in the chart position table. The new versions of Unintended (Official Acoustic Version and Official Mobile Videos on YouTube plus Acoustic, Dream A.I., and Piano Lullaby versions on YT and Spotify) have accumulated 400,000+ total combined video and audio streams on the two platforms during the first two weeks of release. The published key of Unintended [Acoustic Version] appears to be G minor which is also the original published key for MUSE Simulation Theory songs Algorithm and The Void and MOZART symphonies No. 25 and No. 40. The key of Unintended on Showbiz is E minor. Johann Sebastian Bach classical pieces that may have influenced and inspired Matt Bellamy in several of his compositions: Prelude in C Major from The Well-Tempered Clavier I, BWV 846 - 'Unintended [Acoustic Versions]' Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 - 'Plug In Baby' from Origin of Symmetry 'Bourrée, the fifth movement from Suite in E minor for Lute, BWV 996 - 'Falling Away With You' from Absolution - Also inspired Paul McCartney composing The Beatles' song 'Blackbird' Prelude No. 3 in C minor, BWV 999 - 'Micro Cuts' - Harpsichord was featured on the baroque sounding original version of this Origin of Symmetry track later replaced by guitar

The only songs composed in the keys of F minor and E-flat minor are Ruled By Secrecy and Animals, respectively. Lastly, The Dark Side and The Dark Side (ARV) were composed in two different keys, E minor and C minor, respectively.
  12. Cover Songs Performed by Matt Bellamy - First and Latest - 29 Year Span June 1991 - Teignmouth Community College, Devon (UK) - A short excerpt of his performance can be viewed on YouTube 'What'd I Say' - Ray Charles (#6 US Billboard Hot 100 Peak Chart Position in 1959) - Cover versions by several artists including Elvis Presley have also charted, while The Beatles played this song at their Reeperbahn gigs in Hamburg, Germany in the early 60s and Mick Jagger sang it with the band that would become the Rolling Stones. "Piano was the first instrument I really played. I didn’t have any lessons, and though I tinkered with it since I was five, I didn’t really get interested until I was ten or 11. My dad used to play a lot of blues records, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. Ray Charles was the one that stuck out; I used to work on my left hand to 'What’d I Say' in sort of this boogie-woogie style. I spent ages working that out, practicing the left hand doing one thing and trying to do chords with the right hand. I went into a talent contest and played a solo version of that piece and actually won the contest. My older brother forced me into this talent contest and, though I was too nervous to do it, I did it anyway. It made me want to get out there and get some gigs and get in a band. When I first got into a band when I was about 13 or 14, I didn’t play piano for about six years because I just got so into the guitar." - Matt Bellamy Source: Innocence_and_Absolution_(200506_Keyboard_Magazine_article) June 2020 - Recorded in Los Angeles, California and posted last week on Matt's Instagram account [See Claudia O's post on the News/Muse on Social Media forum for the link to hear his performance] 'We'll Meet Again' - Vera Lynn (#55 UK Official Singles Peak Chart Position in 2020; #29 US Billboard Peak Chart Position in 1954; Recorded in 1939) Fun Fact: The Resistance by MUSE debuted at #1 on the UK Official Albums Chart on 20 September 2009 selling 148k copies replacing the compilation album We'll Meet Again - The Best of Vera Lynn which moved down one position to #2 after reaching the #1 spot the previous week.
