Match 61

SEMI FINAL

 

KNIGHTS OF CYDONIA

 

v

 

BLISS

 

 

 

 

The final remaining songs from Origin of Symmetry and Black Holes and Revelations battle it out in this match for a tilt at musical glory, to play in the final and have a shot at becoming the title holder. It has been a long tournament so far, but one of these songs will bow out in this match.

 

Match Preview:

 

KNIGHTS OF CYDONIA

 

Knights of Cydonia is one of the more acclaimed songs Muse have released, gaining widespread recognition as a defining song in recent years. It reached #10 on the UK singles chart, and was voted as as the number #18 song of all time in the Triple J Hottest 100 of all time, the world's largest music poll. Knights goes into this match with a huge task ahead of it, but not one that is beyond it's reach, as it has demolished every opponent so far.

 

Path so far:

defeated MUSCLE MUSEUM 87-32

defeated THE GROOVE 124-15

defeated MEGALOMANIA 71-34

defeated DEAD STAR 83-47

defeated BUTTERFLIES AND HURRICANES 93-48

 

 

BLISS

 

Bliss defeated Citizen Erased in it's last match, coming as a surprise to many, but continuing it's impressive form in the tournament so far. As the final remaining song from fan favourite album Origin of Symmetry, it presents itself as a strong contender for the title, and could be perhaps considered a marginal favourite in this match.

 

Path so far:

defeated MAP OF THE PROBLEMATIQUE 67-49

defeated UNINTENDED 98-19

defeated UNNATURAL SELECTION 100-38

defeated NEW BORN 76-61

defeated CITIZEN ERASED 105-102

I think KoC will win, but not by much. I voted Bliss, I just prefer it, for whatever reason....

I voted for Bliss... although my instinct went for Knights. Normally I do go by instinct and create a reason later but for me Bliss is amazing live... possibly even more so than Knights.

Sorry, I voted for Bliss. Because Bliss defeated Citizen Erased and I love Citizen. It's my fucking logic. :facepalm:

And I really like Bliss too. It is a perfect song...

Really tough choice for me !! KoC was fantastic live in Rotterdam last year , but I became a Muse fan because of Bliss so I voted for Bliss ...

Just pick the shallowest song and you know it'll win. This whole tournament shows a state of affairs I can only comment on: How did it come to this?:(

 

I think the big question for the whole tournament is: Do we need this? ;)

Voted KoC by the way. For obvious reasons wich I do not have to explain.

Before I saw them life, I thought Bliss > KOC. Now I've seen them life and I loved KOC the most of the whole concert. But because I never have seen Bliss live, I'm going for Bliss, also because it's one of the songs that got me into Muse :happy:
