Video Killed The Radio Star: Muse – Knights Of Cydonia


A real treat for you this week – the greatest music video ever made.

Yes, that’s a bold claim, I’ll grant you, but, I think you’ll find, completely justified.

I’ve already featured a great live version of Muse‘s Knights Of Cydonia in Top Of The Pops Thursday.

I love the song – as I’ve said before, I like to think of it as a cross between Ennio Morricone and Iron Maiden.

And the video for Knights Of Cydonia is a TV and movie geek’s dream. It’s presented in the form of a trailer for a sci-fi spaghetti western (I wish someone would make the full-length film) and comes with dozens of references and homages to genre TV shows and films, including Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (the heroine dresses like Wilma Deering!), Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, Blade Runner and many more.

If you’ve seen it, you’ll know how good it is – if you haven’t, I won’t spoil it for you. Enjoy!
