Hi MUsic lovers, I think the idea of the lyrics of the song came from the lyrics of the song called 'I Shot The Sheriff' written and sung by Bob Marley in 1973. Put the cat outside last night, But I'll never win the fight. This is just no fun, That cat has gone and thrown me out again! Didn't mean to wake you up, If I'm not back inside before tomorrow, Carrion, Carrion . Put a gun against his head, pulled my trigger- now he's dead"Here he can be telling Mary about the affair- but obviously very much in code.But I think that Freddie wrote a song 'Bohemian' influenced by cover version by Eric Clapton in 1974. He's saying how he "killed" his old innocent self."Mama, life had just begun- but now i've gone and thrown it all away"Still talking to Mary, he says how the old him was still young and he feels like he only just started dating people like Mary- but now he just threw that person away."Mama, ooh- didn't mean to make you cry.."Here he's more emotional and he's trying to apologize to Mary- saying that he really didn't want to hurt her.".. I often wonder what the artists think of these dissections. I was 10 years old and listened to nothing but AM top 40 radio when I first heard this song in 1975, I hated it, but it soon became one of the "top 3 at Ten PM' for about 3 weeks, and by time that was Over, I was looking at music like I never had before, not just to hum along, but to appreciate the lyrics and the imagination of the creators...37 years later I still find something new in this song everytime I listen to it...100 years from now people will look at classic rock the way we now look at Classical music of the late 19th century, and one of the centerpieces will be Bohemian Rhapsody. even though Freddie claimed it was all "nonsense", he was a very modest person.
Because the lyrics or the story of the song was very impressive and he liked it a lot! He also may mean that it's his time to make seperate ways with Mary, as much as he did love her.
The song was used in the 2 minute plus trailer of the DC Comics movie, Suicide Squad. Most people here are making this song sound like a David Lynch movie! you have a stupid lil simple story, & you make it so complex that people are forced to say, 'oh my, that's so deep!
.)Bohemian Rhapsody is gaining popularity once again in 2016!
So you think you can love him and forget that Iwas first 'toon! I can see the gay angle, if you push it, but when it comes to music, I prefer to just enjoy and keep it simple.
(musical interlude)So you think Homer Simpson is one funny guy? First, LOVE this song, whatever its about (I have always taken it at face value----dude killed someone, now must face the consequences "any way the wind blows", meaning, no matter how you slice it, the consequence is the same---even though he tried to fight the court and ask for leniency because "he's just a poor boy from a poor family", never really had a shot in life).
