Best Songs to Introduce Someone to Muse?

I apologize if a thread like this already exists. I honestly tried to do a search and I couldn't find anything. But if one DOES exist, feel free to lock this thread and slap a giant n00b sticker on my forehead

I was just wondering what you guys thought were the best songs to use when you're trying to "convert" someone into a Muse fan () or simply introduce them to the band. (Not necesarily your favorite songs)

For me, it sometimes depends on the person and what type of music I know they already like. (Example: My friend Aleida is very much into heavier stuff, so the first Muse song I ever played for her was Dead Star )

But in general, I tend to stick to OoS and Absolution stuff at first, since that was what I first listened to. I usually start with TiRO or something "safer" like that first, then move on to the more unique/interesting stuff once I know I've got their attention

I've found lots of people like Bliss too, so that's a useful one to try

I was just curious of what you guys thought... I have a bunch more friends that need converting, and I need some ideas

I guess it just depends on the person. Id probably make them a mixed CD that included Sunburn, Cave, Bliss, New Born, Stockholm Syndrome, TiRO, Knights of Cydonia, Map of The Problematique, Uprising, and MK ULTRA.

I've just lent my friends all the studio albums and told'em to start studying And by that tactic I've now lured a few persons to join me on their first Muse gig (after that, I'm sure I won't need to try to convince anymore).

Also myself I always listen the albums as a whole, I'm weird/oldschool that way..

I sort of try to refrain from pushing thinks I like to other people, but can't help it Just sort of hate to think they'll miss the brilliance that is Muse Live
