Muse - Madness


Muse - Madness - Meaning of the song


The song was inspired by an incident when a humbled Matt Bellamy had to go cap-in-hand to Goldie Hawn's house, as she is the mother of his girlfriend Kate Hudson. The Muse frontman said:

"You've had a fight with your girlfriend and she goes out to her mum's house for the day and you're on your own going, 'What did I say?' I'm sure a lot of blokes have that experience in the early stages of relationships where you go, 'Yeah, she's right, isn't she?'"

Bellamy told Los Angeles radio station KROQ that he considers this to be his favorite of his songs.

"I wrote that song having a fight with my girlfriend. Nothing particularly over the top but just having one of those moments where she leaves you for the day to think about it. I rarely write songs that catharticly. All I had was a drum machine and a synthesizer so I just put this very minimal thing together." "I wasn't quite sure it would work with the band," he added, "but when we started the album I showed it to Dom and Chris and they loved it. They sort of took it to another level by adding these extra parts at the end and it became a much bigger song. It's a real surprise song for this album. It's probably my favorite song that I've ever written."
