Harris’ Song of the Week: United States of Eurasia by Muse

Paying tribute to one of the better albums of the fall, my song of the week is a tribute to two great bands. Although Muse is credited with the writing and performing of “United States of Eurasia” a lot of credit must be passed to the band that clearly inspired this song.

Weather it is written or not this song draws directly on the style that Queen used to write some of the great rock songs of the ’70s.
This song, which spans over five minutes long, is a journey through the minds of both Muse and Queen as we hear many different sounds. The opening riff reminds you of the opening to one of the bands many ballads and as you hit the chorus you would swear you were listening to “We Are The Champions.”
You quickly realize that the sound is in fact Muse, but the amazing blend of sounds within the song makes this a sure fire song of the week and one big reason to check out “The Resistance.”
