Well i heard that this song was written when freddie discovered his homosexuality and he was expressing it in song form before becoming public. Obviously there is someone else involved in this song, maybe they were lovers? Hmmm..
This song is amazing. It really has substance. The lyrics are dark, the way it seems to connect the song before it with the song after it is really lovely, and the music is really rich. It's like a chocolate mud cake. Really beautiful. I truly feel stunned by how powerful the song is everytime I listen to it. This is truly a marvellous peice of work.
An angry heart |
It is interesting how you can't find much about Queen's fist manager Norman Sheffield. It is rumored that Flick of the wrist and Death on two legs are about this man so he must have ripped Queen off very badly to make Freddy so angry. I've looked on line for more info on this man but i cannot find what exactly he did to Queen to anger them enough to produce such nasty lyrics.
Queen = Amazing |
Even the first time I heard this song, when I was sleeping and it woke me up, I adored it. It seems to go hand-in-hand with Death On Two Legs, which is also amazing. The lyrics are a little darker and nastier than most of Queen's work, but oh my god, the visuals!
A Lover of Queen |
I truly love this song, it's one of my favorites. Though this song has more darker lyrics unlike the ones in their later albums. Though the music to this song is simply amazing.
