Queen – In Only Seven Days Lyrics 14 years ago
"What I didn't get was, were they hooking up on Friday, or is it truly intended as a sentimental love song?"

I think it can be interpreted either way. I prefer to think of it as just a sentimental love song.

I don't think the guy was a stalker, because the girl obviously reciprocated the affection. Yeah, they're moving pretty quickly, but that doesn't make him stalker-like, especially since it sounds like he's not going to track her down after he goes home.

Queen – Blag Lyrics 14 years ago
This is actually a Smile song, not a Queen song. The lyrics were written by Roger, but the guitar riff in the middle was written by Brian...this song is sort of a pre-Brighton Rock.

Queen – Ride The Wild Wind Lyrics 14 years ago
I picture Roger and some blonde-haired. blue-eyed girl on a galloping horse whenever I hear this song...though I guess a motorcycle is more like Roger's style.

Queen – Dog With a Bone Lyrics 14 years ago
This is a non-album track made specially for the fanclub, as you can see by the band's comments at the end of the song. I think the only way to get it is through Limewire or something similar.

Queen – Don't Try Suicide Lyrics 15 years ago
No, it's not about Brian's depression...that didn't happen for another ten years.

I think the "nobody's worth it," "nobody cares" things apply to the thing the person is committing suicide over and not to the person him/herself. For example, this song could apply to a girl about to commit suicide because her boyfriend broke up with her. "Nobody's worth it" means "There is no boy worth killing yourself over" and "Nobody cares" means "Your situation isn't as big of a deal as you think it is; it'll pass." There's also an implication of, "Stop threatening to commit suicide--it's annoying and people will think you're an idiot! It's ok, there are people who will help you."

Queen – Mother Love Lyrics 15 years ago
I think "admire" may have been the word skibunnie meant.

Is it really true that Freddie's parents didn't accept him? I heard that he visited them regularly throughout his life.

I think unplacebax mostly covered the meaning, and I think mercurygirl has a point...I think it may have had to do with Brian wanting a stable, secure relationship. The song is about wanting a relationship in which the woman loves the man unconditionally, so when things go wrong in the world, the man always has someone he can come home to and feel safe with and loved by.

Queen – Don't Loose Your Head Lyrics 15 years ago
I could agree with that scimitar_225...I also think A Kind of Magic is their worst album. The hits from that album aren't my favorites, and many of their other songs (namely the three you mentioned) seem like they weren't even trying. Like they were making the album just because they had to, and they figured, "We're rich and popular, it won't matter if we come up with a few songs just to take up space." But I don't totally hate these songs, they're kind of funny and rather pleasant to listen to at points, but not their best effort. Luckily, they picked up their act with The Miracle. I really liked that album.

Wanderpops, that's some pretty good insight into the song. I never thought of it that way.

Queen – A Human Body Lyrics 15 years ago
I agree with your argument about rap, but I think it's idiotic to post it on a page about a Queen song.

This seems like a nice song, but I haven't been able to find it. Does anyone know where I could get it legally without having to buy the Play the Game single on Ebay?

Queen – My Life Has Been Saved Lyrics 15 years ago
Isn't the lyric "I'm in the dark" rather than "I'm in no doubt"? Those lyrics at the end scare me, especially considering what Freddie was going through at the time. (Yes, I know this was a John song rather than a Freddie song, but I wonder if Freddie added in those last lines himself or if John put them there for Freddie.) I always found it ironic that Freddie was singing this, because his life had not been saved...but then when I heard the 1989 version, with those creepy lyrics at the end, it was a hint that everything was not alright.

I prefer the 1989 version to the Made in Heaven version, though. It's more guitar-oriented, which sounds nicer than the synthesizers.

submissions
Queen – Too Much Love Will Kill You Lyrics 15 years ago
"it IS about Brian's divorce and some people think it's about roger's divorce as well... "
Roger's divorce? As far as I know, Roger is still married to Dominique, even though he left her long ago...

Just looking at the title of the song, it could be interpreted in 3 different ways: 1. Too much love (sex) killed Freddie. 2. You love a lot of people, but they keep dying. (As was the case in 1991 with Brian when both Freddie and his father died.) 3. You love a number of different people but can't have all of them.
Looking at the lyrics of the song, I would say it's the third one. ("Too much love will kill you/If you can't make up your mind/Torn between the lover and the love you leave behind") For Brian, it was probably about having to choose between his new love, Anita, and his children. (I don't think he loved his wife Chrissy anymore at that point.)

It's a good song because the lyrics are personal enough to evoke emotions, but general enough to apply to more situations than just Brian's.

And Soul_Haemorrage, I would like to hear your interpretation of every line...

Queen – Son and Daughter Lyrics 15 years ago
This site is songMEANINGS.net, so if you don't want to try to figure out the meaning of the song, don't tell off others who are. Yes, there are many rock songs without meaning, but I don't think this is one of them. Brian May is an intelligent man and many of his songs include interesting, though-provoking lyrics. He doesn't strike me as the type of person to just rebel mindlessly against society, or write songs about it. This particular song is commenting about something very specific within society, or even about a particular person.

I find it rather sad that almost no one wants to put any thought into this song, and the only person here that did thinks Freddie wrote it...

Queen – Father To Son Lyrics 15 years ago
I seem to remember Brian saying somewhere that he tried not to make his songs too personal... Of course, they were pretty personal in the early 90's, especially on his solo albums. But I don't know how directly personal his early songs were. There probably is a personal element in this song, but I don't think it's a description of Brian's entire relationship with his father.

I this this song is about a king who is about to go off to battle and is giving his son some last advice through a letter. His son doesn't understand the advice yet because he is still young, so he either cannot or will not grasp the meaning. When the father dies and the son becomes king, he will have many struggles, but he will look back at his father's letter and start to understand it, and that will help him. He will eventually pass that advice onto his own son.

It's basically about children not taking their parents' advice until they are older, more mature, and have gone through some of the things their parents went through. It may be hard to understand advice until the children learn it themselves from experience; then when they grow up, they will have the same problem of trying to give their children the advice when they aren't ready to take it yet.

Queen – I Can Hear Music Lyrics 15 years ago
Well, it was recorded by Freddie, Brian, and Roger; not John. It's not quite Queen. Yeah, the name "Larry Lurex" was supposed to be a spoof of "Gary Glitter"...and the name worked against them because the joke angered a lot of people, so the song wasn't played much on the radio.

As for the meaning, it's pretty self-explanatory. The song seems to convey a feeling more than a message; just listen to the music. Pure ecstasy.

Queen – Drowse Lyrics 15 years ago
I didn't mean that Roger was a middle aged man...I meant that he was telling the song from the point of view of a middle aged man recalling his youth. That's just the impression I got anyway...

Queen – '39 Lyrics 15 years ago
Oh yeah, I always sort of overlooked that line. I guess I always thought of it as being a granddaughter or great granddaughter because of the line, "For the earth is old and gray, little darling we'll away"...that gave me the impression that it was someone pretty young, maybe in her early twenties. His daughter would have to be at least 99 or 100. So I guess "little" was meant in terms of size or something like that rather than age...

Queen – Dead On Time Lyrics 16 years ago
Missing verse:
"Oooh, honey, honey gotta get laid
Where's my money, where's my money
Wanna get paid, wanna get paid
Leisure leisure leisure"

This song made me think of a fast-paced, overweight business guy carrying a briefcase and rushing down the streets of New York City, talking on his cell phone. He's always in a rush to get to his next meeting or appointment so he really doesn't have much time for himself, let alone others. Then one day, he drops dead from a heart attack. The end!

submissions
Queen – Son and Daughter Lyrics 16 years ago
I guess you could interpret it that way, except this song was written by Brian...but even if it was written by Freddie, I see a number of problems with the interpretation. For instance, it says "I want YOU to be a woman," and not "I want to be a woman." It's still rather an interesting thought, though...maybe Freddie would have liked to be a woman at some point in his life, but I have the feeling that he enjoyed being a man too much to want to change.

I still stand by what I say about it being anti-Feminism. I just can't figure out this part:
"Well I travelled around the world
Found a brand new word for day
Watching the time, mustn't linger behind
Pardon me I have to get away"

submissions
Queen – Pain Is So Close To Pleasure Lyrics 16 years ago

Queen – Don't Loose Your Head Lyrics 16 years ago
It's kind of funny that this song is on the soundtrack for Highlander, considering that Highlander is a movie about people who can die only by decapitation. A very appropriate song!

My favorite lines are, "Don't drink and drive my car/Don't get breathalized." I read somewhere that Freddie included those lines because John had been caught drinking while driving and had his liscence revoked for a year so he had to go to the studio by tube train....

Queen – The Loser in the End Lyrics 16 years ago
It's about a mom who loved her son a lot, but she was too overprotective of him, so now that he's all grown up, he can't wait to get out of the house and leave her. It's giving advice to moms (or parents in general) not to be overprotective or too controlling of their kids (at least let them pick out their own shoes!), but at the same time, seems to be telling the kids not to take their moms for granted.

submissions
Queen – Drowse Lyrics 16 years ago
The lyrics missing at the end are:

"I think I'll be Clint Eastwood
No, Jimi Hendrix, he looks good
Let's try William the Conqueror
Now who else do I like?"

I got the impression that the song was being told by a middle aged man recalling his teenage years. He always wanted to be something special when he was younger, but failed, so now he's just a lazy, discouraged man.

Queen – She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes) Lyrics 16 years ago
Yeah, 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...

submissions
Queen – Tenement Funster Lyrics 16 years ago
I could agree with that! I guess there's not much to comment on...the meaning seems fairly obvious. It sounds like it's about a guy trying to make it as a rockstar and having some difficulties.

Roger Taylor – Good times are now Lyrics 16 years ago
Those are the lyrics for Future Management. These are the lyrcis for Good Times are Now:

Across the street your smile broke
Like a wave upon my face
You didn't notice me at all
Across the street I saw you
With some other pretty face
I loved you then I love you now
I loved you then I love you now
I had to take a chance
Cos special moments only tend
To happen now and then
I had to take my chance and
Grab the moment by its ears
Not be just some fly on your wall
Had to take my chance there
So I asked you out to dance there
I loved you then I love you now
I loved you then I love you now
I had to take a chance
Cos special moments only tend
to happen now and then
Live for the present
It's the only one we have
Nobody gets out of here...... alive
Life in the future might never come to pass
You know -- the good times are now

Queen – Mad The Swine Lyrics 16 years ago
Yeah, I think the lyric is definitely "You're all the same within his eyes"...it makes more sense and it rhymes! I have another correction to add:
"Let me take you to the river without a ford" should be "Let me take you to the river without a fall".

I also think it's about Jesus coming back as a pig. The song doesn't really sound like it's mocking Christianity though; it sounds like it's trying to send a message. Maybe the message is that if Jesus did come back, he would come back as a pig and no one would take him seriously (which is why the people call him "Mad"...mad meaning crazy).

You mean which album? Well, it was released on the B-side of Seven Seas of Rhye, but the band decided not to release it on the Queen II album for some reason, but it is included sort of as a bonus track on newer versions of Queen II. I think it was also on the Complete Vision album.

Queen – Son and Daughter Lyrics 16 years ago
I never really got the lyrics to this song. It does sound like it's about some guy who's angry at something. I sort of thought it was a protest against the feminist movement: That men and women are supposed to have certain roles in society, and women should stick to their role and not try to take on the role of men as well, for two reasons: 1. It's not that easy being a man. 2. A man wants a woman, not a woman trying to be a man and woman (or son and daughter). Just a thought. I don't even think all of the lyrics match that meaning, especially the last part about saving the world. ("Gotta save the world/Ooh, I've just begun") Anyone else have any ideas?

Queen – We Are The Champions Lyrics 16 years ago
Heh...so many people complain about this being used as a sports anthem (including me) but Freddie actually wrote it as a sports anthem: "...I was thinking about football when I wrote it. I wanted a participation song, something the fans could latch on to. It was aimed at the masses; I thought we'd see how they took it. It worked a treat. When we performed it at a private concert in London, the fans actually broke into a football chant between numbers. Of course, I've given it more theatrical subtlety than an ordinary football chant. You know me." Though he said he may also have been commenting on Queen's success: "I suppose it could also be construed as my version of 'I Did It My Way.' We have made it, and it certainly wasn't easy. No bed of roses as the song says. And it's still not easy." (http://queen.musichall.cz/index_en.php?s=ro&d=notw77) Though all of the other meanings of the song could still apply, even if they weren't what Freddie originally intended.

submissions
Queen – Good Company Lyrics 16 years ago
Yeah, kind of a neat song. It sort of has a tone to it like, "Oops! I messed up my life. Well, I hope you don't make the same mistakes I did." The speaker only seems to care about one thing at a time: first his wife, and then his business. Sure, those things are important, but then he ends up losing other important things by placing all importance on a few things. He loses his friends when he becomes too wrapped up in his wife, but then loses his wife when he becomes too concerned with his business. It's sort of interesting that his father says, "Don't fool with fools who'll turn away" but then the speaker ends up becoming one of the "fools who'll turn away."

Of course, the best part is the "Genuine Aloha Ukelele" (Made in Japan). Everyone loves ukeleles!

Yeah, I agree with Alieno too...but I don't think it's just one '39, I think that it must be two '39s. "In the year of '39 assembled here the Volunteers" This is the year when they left, possibly in 2039, probably not 1939 considering they didn't have rockets then. "In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue" Then this is the '39 when they came back, but you don't know how long they were gone for, so they could've been gone for 100 years, then it would be 2139, or maybe 500, or maybe even 1000 so it would be 3039!
