Now, in all the votes, and polls on the forum, Showbiz (the song) is hailed as one of Muse's greatest songs. However, in my opinion, it's one of there worst, alongside Sober. I'm gunna get pelters for this, but I just can't see why everyone likes it.......

It's not my favourite song, I'll admit, but I still really like it. I find it quite powerful, especially in the build up throughout the song and I like the bassline.

 

Just out of interest, what makes you feel it's one of their worst?

It's a brilliant and powerful song and sounds like the band actually fucking mean it.

They have some weaker songs yes, but I don't think Showbiz is one of them. Even thier weaker songs are fantastic and to be honest, I'd take almost any Muse song over any of my other favourite songs.

I love the build up in emotion in the song. You can actually sense Matt getting more and more angry at someone and then eventually losing it.

It's got an amazing buildup, and it just seems really powerful

 

it's my second favourite on the album behind Cave

The build up of the tension,the chorus,the solo,the falsetto at the end,I love everything about that song.

Like everyone's been saying, it's the huge build up that culminates in an awesome guitar dispaly and then Matt blasts the top of his falsetto on top of it all. Brilliant song.

well for one if everyone likes the song maybe you should be asking yourself why you don't like it.

 

 

And second, I think its a brilliant song because it is composed of only a few lyrics and the build up is amazing. So simple, yet so excellent.

im gonna assume your a twitard just for shits and giggles

 

Yeah but if anyone made a "Why does everyone like USoE" for example, then it would be OK.

 

I agree with the OP, it's damn overrated, best from the album, but then there isn't massive competition.

Maybe because of the progressive evolution the song suffers. Maybe because of the way Matt screams. I don't know. It's just my Muse's favourite song along Fury

I don't think you can consider anything in the music or form of art "overrated," its all opinion. Overrated is more suited to be used for competition. Like a team that has hype then gets smashed in the championship game. But again thats your opinion. Judging by the songs in your sig I wouldn't guess you would like most of showbiz anyways = /.

I see what you're saying. But I was regarding 'overrated-ness' in terms of how well Showbiz has been doing in the Muse song world cup, in which it has been getting excessive votes IMO when other songs should have won.

 

And you're wrong about me not liking Showbiz, it's awesome, just my least favourite album.(so still good in Muse's standards)

Just because I like less liked songs and ones that 'you can't be a true Muse fan to like.' Doesn't mean I don't like their more classic and hardcore titles. :)

 

(and btw I'm not aiming this elitism at you personally, it's just the general consensus I have come across from some Muse 'fans.')

I'm the opposite of you, I liked Showbiz and the raw style of muse more so than the BHAR and TR style of music. But yes, still very good songs. And no offense taken, i just like to stir the pot a bit :D

I like Showbiz for the same reason I like a lot of Muse song, it has a brooding, long build up.....the intensity just builds on and on....and it has a talking guitar riff.....

The first time I heard it, I didn't like it that much because of the vocal melody. I thought it was just kind of whiny and boring. BUT, I loved the last minute and a half of the song. It has grown on me enough for me to say that I love it, but there are still probably 5 songs on Showbiz I like more. HTAILY is my fave, I think.
