Ooh, yeah
Ah, yeah

Take me to the room where the red's all red
Take me out of my head, this is what I said
Yeah, ow

Hey, take me to the room where the green's all green
And from what I've seen it's hot, it's mean

Gonna use my stack
It's gotta be Mack
Gonna get me on the track
Got a dragon on my back

Take me to the room where the beat's all round
Gonna eat that sound yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Take me to the room where the black's all white
And the white's all black, take me back to the shack, shack

She don't take no prisoners
She gonna give me the business
Got a dragon on my back
Hey, it's a dragon attack

Get down

I said so

Hey, hey


Oh yeah-eah-eah-eah

(Low down) She don't take no prisoners
(Go down) She gonna give me the business
(No time) Yeah, chained to the rack
(Show time) Got a dragon on my back
(Show down) go find another customer
(Slow down) I gotta make my way

From me, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, oh
Oh, wrong way, yeah
Oh, wrong way


Oh, look out

    A great song to listen to when stoned and drunk! It almost sounds like it's a black funk rock band playing and singing it.

    The dragon on his back (May's) is his guitar. He's about to go onstage and can't wait to make it breathe fire and roar!!

    Yeah, but like most Queen songs, Freddie didn't write it. People always seem to attribute all of the good Queen songs to Freddie. They shared song writing duties. Brian May wrote this song. It's about a love of music. "Take me to the room where the beat's all round" The studio. This was written during the time when they were losing their fans because they weren't playing "Bohemian Rhapsody" type music, this was a new sound for them. Go down- Gonna give me the business (fans screaming 'play Bohemian Rhapsody!') Low down- Gonna give me the business (people giving them a hard time about changing their style) Showtime- Got a Dragon on my back (their past, people wanted them to play the old stuff, but they have to change as artists) Showdown- Go find another customer (It's time for a new audience)

    That's one helluva guitar track. I think the best word to describe the guitar work is 'searing'. And no its not about heroin

    This song cracks me up because it is obvious Brian was just bringing up things around him for the lyrics. There was no deep meaning. The song was more about the groove and melody than the lyrics. They were in Munich recording with Mack. He mentions the studio, his amp stack, Mack, the Sugar Shack (a place they would go clubbing in Munich), and any reference to "she" is his Red Special. The dragon on his back was literal. Many of Brian's stage clothes had dragons on them, including black jacket he wore casually and white vest he wore on stage with a literal dragon on the back.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake_(ceremony) ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
