Be A Blissard of "Bliss" by Muse

Bliss is happiness, and a Blissard, if I may coin the phrase, is a happy person. Be one. Be a Blissard. It's a choice to make every day, no matter what.

Here's a piece of music to which you can listen, that may bring you a bit of joy, if you're a rock fan. It goes like this:

"Everything about you is how I'd wanna be,
Your freedom comes naturally
Everything about you resonates happiness,
Now i wont settle for less.
Give me all the peace and joy in your mind. Oohhhh.
Everything about you pains my envying,
Your soul can't hate anything.
Everything about you is so easy to love,
They're watching you from above.
Give me all the peace and joy in your mind. x3
Ohhhhhhh" ----Lyrics to "BLISS" by MUSE

I like this song. It's a love song, a modern day, alternative rock love song, by Muse. The video for it is cool. Here's the link: (Copy and paste in your browser)

Here's some backgound about Muse: This English alternative rock band had their song "Supermassive Black Hole", included on the "Twilight" soundtrack. Per Wikipedia, "Twilight" was the best-selling theatrical movie soundtrack in the United States since "Chicago". The soundtrack won the 2009 American Music Award for Favorite Soundtrack. This song, "Supermassive Black Hole" was also featured at the beginning of the Series 6 Doctor Who episode "The Rebel Flesh".

...and, here is the Music Video from Twilight:

Muse formed in 1994 with school friends Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals, keyboards, guitars, harmonica) and Dominic Howard (percussion, synthesisers, backing vocals). After the release of their 2006 album "Black Holes and Revelations", Morgan Nicholls performed live with the band. Muse are known for their exciting live performances, and their fusion of genres, including space rockpost grungeprogressive rockalternative rockheavy metalclassical music, and electronica.
Muse have released five studio albums, from 1999 through 2009, have won numerous music awards, and have sold 11 million albums worldwide. Matthew Bellamy has said "Bliss" is his favourite song because it's got 80s arpeggios and keyboards on it, reminding him of music when he was a child, a simpler, more pleasant time. Per Wikipedia, Christopher Wolstenholme said: "We have just always loved playing that song ["Bliss"] live. Even if you don't know the song it has one of those disco-ey feels to it but recorded in a rock way. It was one of those songs that when we play it live you always know if you are having a bad gig - it will be the song that will get the crowd going."
