Music and Sporting Events, Part 2

submitted by Deena

Does Muse have a contract with all the Pittsburgh sports franchises? I am beginning to wonder.

Monday was the Pirates' home opener, and who else was playing during one of their pre-game video montages? Muse, of course. It's not like they wrote the next "We Are the Champions" or anything, but I gotta admit, the music was pretty effective. Still, can't Pittsburgh sports teams get a little creative when they choose their music?

Update: There is still an animated opening sequence with cannons and ships and the like, but no more Carmina--just some other dramatic choral music with orchestra.

Memorable songs from the home opener (sadly, there was no Gary Glitter to speak of):

R.E.M. - "Supernatural Superserious" (I am really enjoying this new track)

U2 - "Vertigo" (one, two, three, fifteen!)

Vengaboys - "We Like To Party" (oh so bad it's good...)
