Hyper Chondriac Music


Your golden lies feed my role
In this forgotten space race under my control
Who´s returned from the dead?
Who remains?

You wanted more than I was worth
You think I was scared yeah
And you needed proof
Who really cares anymore?
Who restrains?

I don´t love you and I never did
I don´t love you and I never will

Extra information


This is a acoustic version of Hyper Music.

Hyper Music has the sort of 'I-dont-care' attitude many have at the end of a relationship. Hyper Chondriac Music, however, has a much sadder, more reflective tune. It's very miserable. My theory is that the A-side, hyper music, is a heat of the moment song, whereas the B-side, chondriac, is the memory and regret of what he's said. A 'why did i say that?' song. He mocks his idiocy with the mournful repeat of hyper musics lyrics.

If you think about it even the song titles back this up; 'hyper music' (indicating out-of-control) and hyper chondriac music (meaning he over-reacted). ( written by Jamie)


Produced by Paul Reeve + Muse

dead star: the first time i listend it i started to cry in the dark too and for 3 or 4 days after i didn´t hear others songs. muse are a feeling´s production yeah!
¡Aspirex!: Ending their albums with these extremely dark, powerful and moody masterpieces has certainly paid off well. This is a very compelling and moving track, and how the same song can be done so differently is beyond me, but obviously not beyond Muse.
sam!: what can i say? a very emotional set of comments above me which sum1 up everything! pure genious! the lyrics seem to change with the music! from heavy i dont love you! do soft and relaxing and i never did!(compared to the original, hyper music) pure class!
cross: this song is infinately better to the orignal, one of there best b sides
TheLosPerinium(stu): so good, i think this is the most emotional muse have wrote, or that i have heard. Not only just this song though, muse put alot of emotion in all the songs they do :´-)

Catarina: Yes, it goes so deep in ourselves. I cry in some songs. And sometimes i cry because i´m so happy. Like in Bliss.
Snapman: I thought this song was crap the first time I heard it.After a few listens I started to appreciate how brilliant it is.

bellamys bitch (lucy): this is really good song i luv it and i luv muse!!!
sgroey: i know! being a hyperchondriac myself, i know where matthew bellamy is coming from when he re-hashed hyper music. the life of a hyper chondriac is a hard one. we gotta lock up our medicine cabinets so that ppl dont see our addiction. HYPER CHONDRIACS OF THE WORLD UNITE!...yes, its an ace song too
sunny: GLAD i heard Hyper music first coz it made this song so much dearer to me, hypermusic up beat, this song damn depressing but one of my favourites. the piano solo piece is gut wrenching and has reduced me to tears. Bellamy is god

susana: there´s so much emotion in this song and it almost makes me cry... i don´t know about you, but this song reminds me a lot of radiohead, other songs too, but this one specially... i don´t know why, but it does... i love the other version, but live it sucks a bit...
Bram: Great song, and there´s is a great contrast in the emotions agression and sadness between Hyper Music and this v
