Save Me
by Muse

Album: The 2nd Law (2012)
  • Bassist Chris Wolstenholme wrote this Beach Boys-inspired song about his struggles with booze even after he'd stopped drinking. He told NME: "'Save Me' was about having the family, the wife and kids who, despite all the crap that I've put them through, at the end of it you realize they're still there and they're the ones who pulled you through."
  • Wolstenholme also performs the vocals on this track. So why did the band allow their bassist to sing this? "I was into it because they were songs that were personal to him," frontman Matt Bellamy told NME. "It's like this new guy - the last time I remember meeting this guy was about 10 years ago. He seems to be so energized about everything. I think he almost feel like he's woken up."
