This was one of two songs on Queen's 1982 "Hot Space" inspired by the death of John Lennon. The album upset many diehard fans because of the prevalence of funk-inspired music. This song was a classic rocker from the pen of Brian May. The anti-gun message is overtly displayed, but the sardonic lyrics make you forgive his sins. It is delivered with great verve by one of the great singers at the peak of his powers. He is backed by a band that knew how to rock. If you play this song while driving you will find your speed increasing.
Be very careful to avoid the other Lennon-inspired song - "Life Is Real." It includes Freddy's hideous mention "Breastfeeding myself."
