"She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes)" as written by and Brian Harold May....
I love...she makes me
She is my heart
She is my love
She is my love

I know you're jealous of her
She makes me need
She is my love
She is my love

Who knows who she'll make me
As I lie in her cocoon
But the world will surely heal my ills
I'm warm and terrified
She makes me so...

I know the day I leave her
I'd love her still
She is my love
She is my love

Who knows where my dreams will end?
I'll follow as they grow
But the world will know
How long I'll take
And if I'm very slow
She makes me so...
She is my love
She is my love

    General CommentThey had Storm Troopers in World War I, long before the Nazis. 'Storm Trooper' is just dramaticspeak for 'Heavy Assault Infantry'.

    That being said, I always thought it was about a guy who had it a little too bad over a woman who walked all over him.

    General Commentalways thought this would be a great final song on Sheer Heart Attack. i like the following song (In the Lap of the Gods...Revisited) and think it also fits well as a final song. but not as well She Makes Me. I definitely don't see any devotion to the Nazi party or a mother-son relationship here--all i see is a man's complete devotion to a woman who is pretty cruel to him. he knows he should leave her, and will leave her, but it will greatly pain him to do so.

    General CommentObviously, this guy is completely in love with this girl. But how the heck did Queen come up with the second half of the name: (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes)? It says nothing about any stormtroopers, and Star Wars hadn't even been made into a movie when Sheer Heart Attack was released... Oh well.

    General CommentHAHA...did you know that way before star wars, a "storm trooper" was a member of the nazi militia. Mr. May must have been suggesting that she was one mean lady.

    I have been wondering (actually, this is my reasoning behind posting the song lyrics) could the narrator actually have been speaking of his mother? Think on it....

    "I know the day I leave her/I'll love her still"
    Why would one plan on leaving such an adored companion? and furthermore...why would he plan on loving her still? The only person I feel that way about is my mum!! Feedback?

    General CommentYeah, it does make sense that it would be his mother. And a mother does tend to "make" her child and know all about him and his dreams and such. Maybe it's a really abusive or harsh mom.

    Of course, looking at it on the most basic level, it seems to be about a man totally devoted to his girlfriend or wife, though he is also being manipulated by her.
    "I know the day I leave her/I'll love her still"
    He might be leaving a girlfriend to go off to war or something like that.

    What I initially thought was that it was about a man's total devotion to the Nazi party, with a woman being used as a metaphor to illustrate how much he loves it. I just can't explain why someone that devoted to it would plan on leaving it...

    General CommentWhen I hear this song I always wonder why Brian May sang it. I know he wrote it and often sang his own songs but Freddie also sang some written by him (eg. Teo Torriate or Dear Friends) Freddie's voice is just so superior to May's. This juxtaposition is made patently obvious by the fact that In The Lap of the Gods...Revisited comes next and we hear the true wonder that was Freddie's singing

    General CommentI think this song is about his mother. The title (stormtrooper in stilettoes) havent a clue, it sounds similar to the title of a gary numan song though.

    The first verse is just about how he loves her. Then in the second verse it is easy to get this confused with a lover, and i kind of dont get it. The next verse is about how he was in her womb, and he was safe, then being born. The next verse is about when he's grown, and he knows he'll still leave her, or maybe he ran away from home, but knew he still loved her.
    The last verse is showing how she is watching over him, and how she knows how things will lay out for him.

    General CommentThe most boring song Brian ever wrote. I don't hate it though, 'cause most of what he wrote was awesome anyway.

    General CommentI take that back, I do hate it. It almost ruins Sheer Heart Attack.

    General CommentI've always liked this song because of its simplicity and straightforwardness. "Stormtrooper in Stilettoes" seems to have some connotations towards bdsm and the ending with the heavy breathing that stops and the sirens sounds kind of like bdsm gone too far.
