Music Meme (Day 8) - A Song That I Know All the Words To

The word "all" makes me want to choose Rock and Roll Part II by Gary Glitter.  It's known as "The Hey Song" for a reason.  You got it, "Hey" is the only word in the entire song.  Hey, I'm not really going to choose that song though. ;>) That would be a complete cop out.  Okay, let's see.  Let me think...I'm fairly confident that I know MOST of the lyrics to many songs, but do I know all of them to any?  Hmmm.  Definitely can't choose Bennie and the Jets.  No one knows the lyrics to that one.  Maybe not even Sir Elton and Bernie Taupin themselves.  GREAT song though, isn't it? 

I do believe that it is time to select the song I hear every time I receive a call on my BlackBerry.  I first heard it on the Twilight Soundtrack in March 2009.  However, it was the first single released on the album, Black Holes and Revelations, by the English Alternative band, Muse, in 2006.  Each time I hear it I visualize the Vampire Baseball Scene in Twilight, which is probably the coolest part of the movie.  Here is a live performance at Wembley Stadium in 2007 of Supermassive Black Hole.  (The studio version has a far superior sound, of course.)


Here are the lyrics:

Oh baby don't you know I suffer?
Oh baby can't you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenses
How long before you let me go?

Oooh...You set my soul alight
Oooh...You set my soul alight

(oooh...You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(oooh...You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

I thought I was a fool for no-one
Oh baby I'm a fool for you
You're the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth

Oooh...You set my soul alight
Oooh...You set my soul alight

(oooh...You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(oooh...You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
(sucked into the supermassive)

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(oooh...You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

(oooh...You set my soul)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole
