"Crazy Little Thing Called Love" as written by and John Deacon....
This thing called love, I just can't handle it
This thing called love, I must get round to it
I ain't ready
Crazy little thing called love

This thing (this thing)
Called love (called love)
It cries (like a baby)
In a cradle all night
It swings (woo woo)
It jives (woo woo)
It shakes all over like a jelly fish
I kinda like it
Crazy little thing called love

There goes my baby
She knows how to rock 'n' roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
Then she leaves me in a cool cool sweat

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip
And get on my track's
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip
And get on my track's
Take a back seat (ah hum), hitch-hike (ah hum)
And take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready (ready Freddie)
Crazy little thing called love

This thing called love, I just can't handle it
This thing called love, I must get round to it
I ain't ready
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Crazy little thing called love
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah
Crazy little thing called love, yeah, yeah

    General CommentIMO Freddie and Elvis are on the same level vocal wise. Vocally Elvis was a killer on stage just like Freddie. Unfortuately whenever anyone talks about great musicians the same ones get repeated: Elvis, The Beatles and Michael Jackson. Freddie was better than all 3 and this is why:
    Elvis had great vocals but he couldn't write music or songs. Freddie did all three.
    The Beatles (Paul & John) were great songwriters but they didn't sing as great as Freddie. Freddie could do both.
    Michael Jackson could dance and I think he wrote a few songs but Freddie had a powerful voice, solely wrote classics and he didn't need to know how to dance because his stage presence as a rock frontman was the best.
    But for some reason Freddie never gets mentioned and I think it's a disgrace because he had more talent than anyone.

    General CommentThey do kind of sound like Elvis, don't they? Funny for a British band. Freddie wrote it in the bathtub while in Paris, I read in the notes to "The Game" CD... go figure...
