  • On good days, listening to "Blackout" gives you the chills. On worse days, the tears run rivers.
  • Listening to the b-side "Glorious" can make you cry tears of soul-swelling joy and exuberance. Words cannot describe.
  • Exogenesis, especially part 3, with Matt Bellamy pleading, "Just let us start it over again. And we'll be good, this time we'll get it right."
  • "Soldier's Poem" is a complete wrecker.
  • "Love Is Forever".
  • "Falling Away With You".
  • "Hoodoo". "And I've had recurring nightmares that I was loved for who I am... and missed the chance to be a better man."
  • "Starlight"'s "Hold you in my arms..." line can set some people (including men) on tears. Its just quite intense how its said.
  • The song "Escape" from their first album. Listening to grown man belt out those lyrics can cause a creeping sense of Wangst. And then you hear the meaning behind it: Bellamy wrote it about his parent's divorce from the point of view of his 13 year-old self. Now listen to those lyrics again and imagine them coming from a confused, 13 year old Matt. It's not exactly an uncommon or traumatising topic and he wasn't particularly little, but having your family fall apart around you can be a pretty confusing and frustrating experience for someone that age.
  • The ending of "Citizen Erased" is quite sad... ironically the gentle fade out to the song is followed by distortion, static and then... right into MICRO CUTS
  • For the band: the night of their Glastonbury 2004 set, which Matt often describes as the best concert of their career, Dom Howard's father died of a heart attack on-site right after the last song ("Stockholm Syndrome").
