Butterflies and Hurricanes
Butterflies and Hurricanes

“Butterflies and Hurricanes” By Muse, from Absolution

Released 2003

Muse is so awesome. They are so large-scale and magnificent, so “in-your-face” amazingness. “Butterflies and Hurricanes” was mainly inspired by the butterfly effect and chaos theory. As a classical enthusiast, I instantly fell in love with the piano in this song, from the licks to the Rachmaninoff-esque interlude (I love Rach like no one’s business). Compare the interlude to this Piano Concerto.
