Listen To Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision” From The ‘Eclipse’ Soundtrack

Becky Bain / May 17, 2010

Muse has the distinction of being the one band featured on all three Twilight soundtracks, but this time, the British rock trio scored the lead single. Listen to the band’s grandiose love song, “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)” from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack by jumping below. (We’re already  calling this the best song title of the year.)

(Begins at :50.)

Muse – “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)”

After a sweeping piano-led intro declaring, “Our love would be forever/And if we die/We die together/And lie, I said never/’Cause our love would be forever,” the beat kicks in and the song morphs into a full-fledged rock opera. It’s epic, it’s loud, it’s dramatic, it’s everything you want in a Muse song. In fact, the chorus sounds vaguely like the chorus to “Resistance”… actually, this track sounds a little bit like several Muse tracks blended together.

The band didn’t write “Neutron Star Collision” for the film, but the lyrics just happened to fit the immortal love theme of the franchise. As far as the music goes, though, we almost think this song is way too upbeat and flamboyant for the dreary moodiness of Eclipse. (Yeah, we haven’t seen the movie yet, but we’re willing to bet it’s as lovesick and serious as the first two films.)

Are you guys digging Muse’s latest offering? Or are you Twi-hards planning on buying the Eclipse soundtrack regardless of what songs are on it?
