Title: I created a scorecard for the Muse show I'm going to.
Posted: December 15, 2009 (05:24 PM)
+12 – for Citizen Erased
+10 – for You Fucking Motherfucker
+8 – for any b-side (excluding Nishe, since that’s just an instrumental)
+8 – if your setlist exceeds 23 songs (excluding transitional stuff)
+7 – if you end the show with Take a Bow
+6 – for Bliss
+5 – for Butterflies & Hurricanes
+5 – if your setlist exceeds 18 songs (excluding transitional stuff)
+4 – if I hear the Maggie’s Farm riff
+4 – for any song from Showbiz
+3 – if a laser display is in any way involved
+3 – for Apocalypse Please
+3 – for any Origin of Symmetry song that isn’t mentioned elsewhere
+2 – for any Absolution song that isn’t mentioned elsewhere
+1 – each for Hysteria, Time Is Running Out and Stockholm Syndrome
+1 – each for New Born and Plug In Baby

-1 – if you open the show with a song from The Resistance
-2 – for each song from The Resistance exceeding four
-2 – each for Soldier’s Poem and Hoodoo
-2 – if my ears aren’t ringing by the end of the show
-3 – if you end the show with Knights of Cydonia
-3 – for each half hour after Silversun Pickups close before you take stage
-3 – for United States of Eurasia
-4 – if you play Supermassive Black Hole IN ADDITION TO Undisclosed Desires
-4 – for any cover
-5 – if there’s no encore
-5 – if you just stamp out the Citizen Erased riff without actually playing the song
-6 – if your set isn’t more extravagant than Coldplay’s
-7 – if more than two-thirds of the songs are singles
-9 – for Undisclosed Desires
-10 – if you actually waste your time playing all three parts of Exogenesis

I predict -3, though it maybe be as high as +5 and as low as -8. Don't forget this is for an American audience so don't expect Citizen Erased and expect Undisclosed Desires (which they're even playing at every EU show).

I'll consider it a miracle if they break even. And as far as Undisclosed Desires goes... well, I'm just hoping they come to their senses and realize it's a shit song sometime over the next two and a half months.

It'll be an awesome show no matter what, especially since this is the first time I'm seeing them live. I'm just highlighting what I'd consider absolutely ideal.

There's no way they won't play Supermassive Black Hole because....

That's awesome. I need to start doing this for video games pre-release. It would've been especially useful in scoring Dissidia. You know... stuff like +10 if Sephiroth and Kefka fight... -10 if the value of having friends is mentioned more than once.
