Muse – ‘Survival’

Muse - 'Survival'

The official song of the 2012 Olympics

Cossack barbershop Blur. Finger-clicks. Jaunty pianos. Male choirs hoofing around. And Matt delivering the central Olympic-themed conceit: “[i]Life’s a race/I’m gonna win/I’ll light the fuse/And I’ll never lose[/i]”. Pretty crude, but the self-belief on Muse’s sport-dedicated comeback soon goes beyond trying to gee up our team to a bronze.
