"Unintended" is a song by English alternative rock band Muse, released as the fifth and final single from their 1999 debut album, Showbiz.

Content[edit]

The lyrics tell the story of a person coming out of depression because they have recently found happiness from love, and they now wish to see their life through to the end.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video features many lovers 'blending' around each other as Matthew Bellamy and the band sit around. The blending effect is achieved using the slit-scan technique.

Release[edit]

The song was released on 5 June 2000 on 7" vinyl – backed with a live version of "Sober" – double CD – backed with "Recess", a live acoustic version of "Falling Down", "Nishe" and a live acoustic version of "Hate This & I'll Love You" – and cassette – backed with "Recess". It reached number 20 in the UK Singles Chart – an improvement of two positions on "Sunburn" and the highest of all the singles from the album.[1]
