Muse

Until I saw an article written by my friend Kenzy England, I had no idea that Matthew Bellamy and Kate Hudson were together. Most people probably recognize Kate, but those of you who aren't into alternative rock may be wondering who Matt is.

Matt Bellamy is the lead singer of Muse. I still remember the first time I heard his voice. I was absolutely mesmerized. I happened to see a music video of "Knights of Cydonia" being performed live, and it was pure magic. I had to know more about this band, so I started looking for more of their songs and videos. All I can say is that Muse is amazing.

In addition to the concert performance of "Knights of Cydonia," there is also a scripted video, known as the Western; both versions are well worth watching. "Uprising" is essential viewing. In fact, it received an MTV VMA award for special effects.

I encourage everyone who hasn't seen these videos to take a look. If you can't watch videos online and can't get them On Demand, I hope you'll be able to at least listen to the songs through last.fm or another website.
